Thief stopped by comedian mid stand up act

This is the moment an alleged would-be thief was apprehended by a comedian - after he sprinted into the middle of a hidden camera stand up show. Comic Milo McCabe was being filmed by pal Will Hutchby as part of an act which sees him asking people to "sponsor a word" in the style of a charity street chugger. But Milo - who was playing the character of a dapper 1930s gent - was astonished when he saw an alleged shoplifter running towards him, chased by a shop worker. The apparent thief runs straight into the middle of the stunt, so Milo and fellow pedestrians tackled him to the ground in Liverpool.
