Amy Schumer called out a heckler at a show in Stockholm for his sexist comments before getting him chucked out of the theatre.

The American comedian, who is touring the UK this month, was performing at Stockholm's Hovet arena on Wednesday when a member of the audience interrupted her.

"Show us your tits!" the man is heard calling out on a video posted to her YouTube channel.

Schumer stopped the show in order to identify the culprit.

"Okay, wait, I want the guy who just yelled 'show us your tits' to come up here," Schumer said.

"Everybody point at him, so I know which one."

About dozen people pointed to the man, who was wearing a shirt which read, "I love pussies".

"Now don't get shy," Schumer asked the man. "What do you do for a living?"

"Sales," he responded.

"Sales?" Schumer asked. "How's that working out? Is it going well? Because we're not buying it."

Schumer then warned the individual: "If you yell out again, you're going to be yelling 'show your tits' to people in the parking lot, because you're going to get thrown out, motherf****r."

When the heckler makes an inaudible remark, he is removed from the auditorium saying "I was about to go anyway".

"We're gonna miss you so much," she said, sarcastically. "I already miss you."

Schumer has given short shrift to sexism in the past.

In January, a young film critic, Jackson Murphy, tweeted a photo of himself with the Trainwreck star on the red carpet at the Critics' Choice Awards, with the caption: "Spent the night with @amyschumer. Certainly not the first guy to write that."

Schumer responded: "I get it. Cause I’m a whore? Glad I took a photo with you. Hi to your dad.” She later accepted his profuse apologies.

The comedian is also known for combating sexism in the media, showbusiness and comedy industries through her stand-up and sketches.
