According to UK Comedy website Chortle, comedian Andrew Maxwell, has doled out a some surprising revelations regarding his controversial BBC TV show “Conspiracy Road Trip”. He was arrested at gun point while filming the “documentary” but claims his amazing stand up act saved him from serving time in a US prison. He and his team were detained at infamous “secret” US Military base, Area 51. Apparently Maxwell’s madcap routine about The Middleton Sisters which stopped him from being hilariously flung into a dingy holding cell:
The Irish comic and a documentary crew had snuck into the vast desert installation, believed by ufologists to contain remains of a flying saucer that crashed in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947, to shoot a BBC show.
But guards armed with machine guns swooped, and ordered the group of 12 to lie face down on the floor for three hours while the FBI checked their credentials.
Maxwell claims that only the intervention of a Lincoln County deputy sheriff, who had seen his Live at the Apollo routine about the Middleton sisters, prevented them from being thrown in a Nevada jail.
