Hecklers come in all forms; whether it's a comedian being heckled or someone in the office who is "heckling" you. And it can range from annonying to downright disruptive. In her podcast this week, Comedian and Keynote Speaker Jan McInnis talks about how to handle hecklers in the comedy world. And these tips can be applicable to you in your daily life.

"Comedians develop their heckler responses through a combination of practice and using a few techniques. If you have someone heckling you in business, you may be able to apply these comedy techniques to get past this upsetting person," McInnis says.

In her podcast, Comedian Stories, she outlines five ways comedians get past hecklers and move on, and no, it's not always about trying to "top" the heckler. McInnis admits that she hasn't had to handle hecklers that much because her act isn't combative, but she still has had some experience with them, and she's witnessed other comedians handle them.

Comedian Stories is produced every Thursday. McInnis opens with a joke from her act, tells a quick story, and then offers a take-away tip.
