Watch Ian Abramson’s Literally Shocking Stand Up Set on Conan

Comedian Ian Abramson believes in suffering for his craft, something made abundantly clear during his appearance on Conan Monday night. Just over a minute into his set, Abramson donned a shock collar and gave the remote to an audience member. If she didn’t like a joke, she could give him a nice jolt.

Luckily, Abramson is pretty good, so he didn’t spend the entire set writhing in pain. Follow Ian Abramson on Twitter at @ianabramson, and watch the video above to see the entire Conan set, shocks and all.

Bonus: Check out Ian Abramson on Comedy Central’s 7 Minutes in Purgatory, a show that puts comics alone in the back of a truck doing their act, while the audience watches from a different room.
