COMEDIAN Nish Kumar’s brutal joke about Piers Morgan left BBC Question Time’s audience in hysterics.

“I described one member of the panel, I won’t tell you who it is, as what would happen if someone injected a gammon steak with white privilege.”
The audience burst out laughing as Morgan pointed to himself.
Kumar continued: “Now, again, not wishing to give anything away, if I could go back in time, I would high-five myself because it’s a funny line right.
“Now, do I consider than an absolute privilege that I utilise constantly, absolutely I do.”
Taking another jibe at Morgan, Kumar said that his jokes meant he could never host a morning TV show.
jobs, for example, co-hosting Good Morning Britain.
“Absolutely, there is consequences to the things that you say.”
