.Ariel Elias at Stanford

Ariel Elias was once heckled onstage by a Trump supporter. With quick wit, she slammed the woman with a great one-liner,  and the thin-skinned loudmouth chucked a beer at the performer’s head, barely missing her. In a moment of pure badassery, Elias picked up the can and chugged the remaining suds. The incident was caught on video and went viral, getting the attention of late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. She asked Kimmel if she could debut on his show, and two weeks later, she was in front of network cameras. Who knew it was as easy as just asking? Of course, having a hilarious set of well-crafted jokes and the chutzpah to take no ish doesn’t hurt. (MW)
