An audience of Los Angeles moviegoers has thankfully reported no serious injuries after they were subjected to an unprompted standup comedy routine while waiting to view The Lost City.

On Wednesday evening, an AMC movie theater had a projector malfunction, causing the start of the Sandra Bullock-Channing Tatum screwball comedy to be delayed. In an apparent effort to keep spirits high, comedian and psychic Tiffany King began doing her standup routine in front of the crowd. It was generally not received well.

The routine featured many moments of singing and jokes about being a single mother. The crowd heckles her and, more notably, rarely laughs. The whole thing is deeply uncomfortable, giving it an air of a Punk'd or Sacha Baron Cohen stunt.

Social media was aghast at the multiple viral videos of the incident, as many seemed to concur that bad impromptu standup comedy should be a federal crime.

NBC caught up with King to get the scoop on what caused her to subject the audience to her standup. King explained she did it on a dare from her 8-year-old daughter. She also explained that she's tuned out "all the negative comments" about her impromptu set on social media.

"I know how hard comedy is, so I'm happy I did it, and I don't care what the negative stuff is," she said.
