Inspiring, isn't it? I am impressed with this guy's dedication.
THE SHOW MUST GO ON: Comedian Mark Olver got plenty of laughs when he fell down during his stand-up routine at a comedy club in Bristol, England. Almost immediately after coming out on stage, he collapsed in a heap. As he lay on the floor, microphone in hand, he kept telling jokes -- even though he had a dislocated knee and broken ankle."I was in a lot of pain, but managed to do about 15 minutes of material while on the floor, passing out every now and then because of the pain, and then coming round to do the punch line." The audience thought it was part of his act until paramedics arrived and carried him off the stage on a stretcher. Olver didn't take any time off at all: he was back on stage the next night, doing his act in a cast. (Bristol Evening Post)
