The last time we remember Holly Montag making news in a comedy club, Montag and her friend were getting kicked out of The Laugh Factory last July and drunk heckling Chris Franjola. Nine months later, the incident apparently has given birth to Montag's idea of a career in stand-up comedy. Or at least a guest set at The Comedy Store the other night. After using an AA intro, she joked about drinking and decided to use her run-in with Franjola as a routine -- although by calling him a ginger, she may have gotten him confused with his Chelsea Lately co-worker Brad Wollack. Montag then went on to joke about being an outcast not only among her real family and fake family from The Hills, but also in Los Angeles in general. Franjola was on the Chelsea Lately roundtable late last week, but I don't think they brought it up then. Hmmm. Maybe this week?
If this becomes a habit, we'll be sure to let you know. Until then, we'll consider it just another Hollywood Hollyweird Holly Montag moment. Roll the clip.
We all know that hecklers are a scourge upon society and better left unpublicized, because the heckler is usually a person who craves publicity -- which makes the vicious circle that much more vicious, particularly when we find out that the heckler in question last night at the Laugh Factory who disrupted a charity event by threatening to use her chain accessories against the performing stand-up was one of MTV's faux celebs, Holly Montag. Yes. Holly Montag, sister of Heidi Montag from The Hills and most recently bringing down the NBC network this summer on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here with the mere suggestion that she was a celebrity (and forging an alleged relationship with American Idol publicity hound Sanjaya Malakar). Syndeee at gossip blog Hollywire was on the scene and filed a detailed play-by-play of how Montag melted down. That's comedian Chris Franjola (a story producer and regular panelist on E!'s Chelsea Lately) getting chewed out by Montag before security kicked her out. And is that Chelsea Handler's pint-sized sidekick Chuy looking on from front row center?
Interestingly, in this increasingly instant-messaged society, Franjola did not go straight to his Twitter feed to share the news. Instead, here is some footage of Franjola trying to make sense of what just happened from the stage itself:
