Comedian 'storms out' of interview with Huw Edwards

Stand-up comic Brendon Burns expressed mock rage and made a dramatic exit, when he appeared on the BBC News Channel.

He pretended to be "outraged" at fellow comic Tim Vine's receipt of the award for best joke at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, presented by digital TV channel Dave.

The winning one-liner was: "I've just been on a once-in-a-lifetime holiday. I'll tell you what, never again."

The untimely exit by the Australian comedian appeared to backfire, when he was unable to return to the live broadcast in time, due to some technical difficulties.
