MACON, Ga. — – But seriously, folks: A 43-year-old man was charged with three bank robberies after confessing on stage at a comedy club.
Glenn Matthews, 43, delivered the punchline Friday night after joining a performer on stage at the Comedy Cafe
"After he got onstage, he said, `I have something on my mind that I want to share with you. ... I'm the one who has been robbing all the banks in middle Georgia,"' club owner Mike Smith said.
Smith, a former policeman, said he tried to keep the audience calm as he got Matthews off the stage and had staff members call police.
Smith was charged Sunday with three robberies in the Macon area between December 1999 and last week. In each case, witnesses said the robber was armed with a rifle and fled on a bicycle.
