American comic Reginald D Hunter was at his offensive best despite having to perform his set from a wheelchair after breaking a leg.

The Georgia native has celebrated his 20th year in the UK and felt comfortable kicking off with Brexit jokes.

In fairness to him he didn't shy away from Donald Trump either, apologising to the rest of the world for his home nation's choices.

As with all of Hunter's sets, race was never far from his mind. He stated his preference for British racists, 'they don't shoot you, they just tell you to move over there' and with his final joke made the crowd examine its own views as he discussed Angela Merkel torturing a Greek prisoner.

With a liberal Latitude audience Hunter's material was always going to go across well and it was clear he was enjoying himself with a mischievous grin spreading across his face every time he prepared to make people squirm.
