Comedy actor Mackenzie Crook endured a rocky start to showbiz - he was pelted with offal and nearly maimed by a pint glass during an early comedy gig. The British Pirates Of The Caribbean star always knew he would make it as a stand-up comic, but his audiences weren't always sympathetic. He says, "I spent periods on the dole (state benefits). "For two or three years my only source of income was stand-up. "I remember an early gig. The act before me had done a magic act using raw liver. "The audience started chucking leftover offal at me and a pint glass smashed on the wall behind my head. "That was really rough. It took me a week to get over it."
