Yeah, at that point, we were out of there.
Something I found more offensive was the audience in general. Here are some "overheards" Chicagoist-style:
The people behind us, who totally sucked and screamed in Scratch's ear to get a friend's attention:
Girl: My boyfriend? He took me to New York? And we saw two plays. I had never seen a play before. I wanted the actors to start singing!
Guy: The popularity of musical theater proves the utter stupidity of human beings.
Other Guy: Blah blah blah.
Endless blather! Shut Up!
Then, in the refund line - different people:
Girl: Oh My GAWD, one lady wanted a refund for her $95 dress!
Guy: Oh, who spends only $95 on a dress? That's pretty cheap isn't it?
I was considering taking iO classes to boost my imaginary stand-up career, but I'm pretty soured on the whole experience. Sorry, my comic heroes - I don't blame you, but your show sucked!
