I agree. If he was going after the heckler, was he going for a joke? And if not whats the point of being venimous to your paying audience?

I have heard some comedians go after audience memebers and usually they are trying to be funny. It might bother the person but its done in humour [like the time the Rev Bob Levy announced to the crowd that he was going to sodomize me because I had on a nice suit][and no he didnt say sodimize].

What I saw from Richards looked to be really venimous, and the question is where did than venom come from? IS this something that happened regularly in his act--since it does seem a bit unusual that someone was allowed to bring a camera in and videotape the performance [since most taping of shows isnt allowed]?

So they were actually talking about it this morning on the Stern show (coincidentally with Rev Bob Levy, who has apparently worked with him), and I am inclined to agree with their assessment. Richards isn't really a stand-up comic. He's an actor. He did some stand-up years ago, probably before he was even on Fridays and well before he was on Seinfeld, but he really hit it big when he became Kramer. Now that the show is over, he sort of has this instant cred as a headliner at clubs, but he never really developed an act to go with it. So he shows up, and he gets a two minute pop on name recognition alone, but once that's worn off he doesn't really have any material to keep them hooked so they turn on him. As you know, the bigger a face you are, the bigger a heel you are after the turn. So they end up really hating him, and he's not really prepared for it, and eventually, after 8 years (well, 7 since he had a sitcom for a minute after Seinfeld) its just gotten to him and he's starting to crack.
