West End stage show One Man, Two Guvnors was halted last week (ends03Mar13) when a castmember fell off the stage during the production.
British actor/comedian Rufus Hound, who took over the lead role from James Corden, had to keep the audience at London's Theatre Royal Haymarket entertained for 10 minutes after a female colleague took a tumble and injured her ankle.
Hound cracked jokes during the break, while medics tended to the injured actress.
A source tells Britain's Mail on Sunday newspaper, "Rufus cracked the old gag, 'Two monkeys in a bathroom. One is in the bath and says, 'ooh ooh, aah aah'. The other replies, 'add cold water'. He got very few laughs."
The show resumed after the interruption.
There's already an Oscars buzz surrounding this movie.
