We know it can be hard being a comedian in New Zealand, but hecklers are one thing - attacking magpies are something else entirely.
Kiwi comedian Josh Thomson posted a hilarious video on Facebook yesterday of him Skyping friend and fellow comedian Guy Montgomery when he got bombarded by some rude birds.
“So I got attacked by magpies. If you're a fan of Avian justice, this is for you,” he wrote.
Thomson’s conversation with Montgomery went a little bit like this:
Montgomery: “Hey man, how are ya going?”
Thomson: “Yeah good.”
Montgomery: “Are you sure?”
Thomson: “Oh I got swooped, I got swooped, I’m getting swooped by a bird!”
Thomson then starts laughing and running away before seeking shelter in a nearby building.
When he thinks he’s gotten away from the attacking birds he says: “Oh my god! Hahaha.”
Josh Thomson has been touring the country with 7 Days Live this week and performed in Palmerston North last night.
