Deepak Sethi was performing at the LA Comedy Club in Las Vegas when he asked the crowd if there was any military there.

After a man cheered, Sethi started to say "Thank you," when the man yelled, "We're comin' for ya!"

But after the show, Sethi ended up meeting the man, who he said was a "real vet ... and really cool," the comic wrote on Reddit.

"He was with his wife who was super embarrassed. I got them free comps to future shows for being a good sport. Like someone else mentioned, this was the friendliest heckle ever! I really don't think he was trying to be racist."
