ISAAC Butterfield is quick to recall his worst comedy gig ever.
It happened on a bus.
It was after a City-Country NRL clash and he'd been promised a stand-up routine in the program, which never came to be.
"I'd just started out doing comedy and the coach Brad Fittler said I should do the stand-up on the way back home on the bus with the bus mic," Butterfield said.
"The bus was half-full of drunks; there were massive dudes screaming at me to sit down!"
From humble beginnings, working the dark, dingy comedy rooms of his hometown Newcastle, Butterfield has done six years of hard yards to become an overnight success.
After realising the destiny to success was in his own hands, Butterfield posted two videos a week online, which attracted no more than 500 views.
He gained 1000 subscribers after 12 months.
"Then I had a video that went viral with 5 million views on YouTube and 10 million on Facebook," he said.
"It took me four days to get 150,000 subscribers."

Wielding his sharp wit, Butterfield declared war on everything; from vegans to religion, his approach unleashed on everyone.
Butterfield said he developed his comedy skills at school.
"I was a very overweight kid so I worked out that comedy helped me make friends and get to talk to girls," he said.
"To be able to make a 50-year-old laugh and still make someone in Year 6 laugh is great."
After Melbourne International Comedy Festival sellout run, Butterfield announced his debut World Tour of Australia, New Zealand, Britain, Ireland and the US.
Incidentally, Butterfield got a standing ovation after his last Albury gig!
