13) Saw a “comic” point out noises instead of telling jokes or do ANYTHING because apparently we weren’t on board with his weirdness, which he didn’t approve of, and then cut and run right after his set.  If he was trying to make sure that people won’t come to his shows where his name is on the bill, he’s doing a damn good job.
