In Australia, Adele's a filthy standup comic.

The 25 singer encountered some technical difficulties last night (March 13) during a show in Adelaide when part of her setup's power was cut and her band's instruments were rendered silent. So, she did what any artist would do — she pulled something out of her ass for five minutes while technicians tried to speedily power through repairs.

“So we’re having a technical difficulty,” Adele said. “I’m not quite sure what it is. Shall I try and tell some jokes? Shall I tell you my filthy joke despite all the children here? I need more applause than that because I might offend someone."

That didn't stop her, though, and she ultimately went in:

”What do you call a blonde standing on her head? A brunette with bad breath.”

Never before has a two-drink minimum seemed so critical.

After power was restored and the show was salvaged, Adele apologized for the hiccup and tried to explain.

”I’m sorry about the power cut tonight," she told the crowd. "Thank you for your patience with my absolutely useless banter and thank you for putting up with some terrible jokes.”
