Jewish prankster Simon Brodkin interrupted Theresa May’s speech at Conservative Party conference, handing her a P45 form.
The Prime Minister’s speech was held up by a few minutes as the hall turned to watch the TV star - dressed in a shirt, tie and glasses - being led out by security personnel.
Brodkin has pulled off a number of pranks on public figures – including throwing money over then-FIFA President Sepp Blatter and rolling swastika golf balls towards Donald Trump.
The comedian is also known for his alter-ego Lee Nelson.

Afterwards Brodkin tweeted that the P45 was intended for Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.
Theresa May continued after a round of applause from the audience.
During her speech, Mrs May also criticised Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s approach to tackling discrimination in his party, saying he had allowed “antisemitism and misogyny to run free”.
