Joe Lycett has been reported to the police after fan finds joke in his comedy tour too offensive

Joe Lycett has been reported to the police by a fan who found one of his jokes too offensive.

The comedan made the revelation on Twitter on Tuesday (21 June), saying that the police “had a duty to investigate” him over the quip featured in his current tour.

“So someone came to my tour show a few weeks back and was offended by one of the jokes. And their perfectly understandable response to this was… to call the f***ing police,” he wrote.

“To be fair to them, the fuzz were very nice about it and all but felt that had a duty to investigate. This involved me writing a statement explaining the context of the joke for them; I particularly enjoyed putting the words ‘giant donkey dick’ into a message to a police detective.”

Lycett continued: “Charmed, and hopefully amused, the rozzers have since closed the mater.”

The comedian assured fans that the joke remains in the tour, writing: “You’ll be pleased to know that the joke remains firmly and proudly in the show. The tour continues until September, unless I am jailed.”

He also called the joke “one of the best I’ve ever written”.
