Sykes began her set at the Count Basie Center for the Arts on Thursday in Red Bank by making fun of how the public appears to be aging more quickly from stress during Trump’s administration. The Asbury Park Press reports some attendees began heckling Sykes, complaining that she was being political.

About a dozen attendees walked out and began to argue with one another and staff in the lobby. Attendees who stayed at the show say that it was enjoyable and that attendees should have expected jokes at the president’s expense.

Theater staff declined to comment.
