A comedian has sparked outrage after mocking an epileptic woman who had a seizure during his show.

Andrew Schulz, of New York, was performing in New Orleans on March 30 when audience members called out asking for medical help.

Woman - Paramedics

This occurred after a woman - who has not been identified - was taken out by paramedics.

Mr Schulz then took to the mic to make light of the shocking events in true stand-up comedian style.

The video shows the organisers rushing to the woman's aid after an audience member called out for help.

Not long after, Mr Schulz returns to the stage as the epileptic woman is slowly led out. He asks her if she is okay and reassures her 'not to be embarrassed'.
