Laugh, dammit.

Jessie always says that we never do anything interesting when she comes to town. So tonight, I suprised her with a trip to one of the comedy clubs. Everything seemed out of whack... from the brightness of the house lights to the timing of the comedians, but it was her first trip and she had fun and that's all that matters.

What gets me about comedy clubs is that there is always one of two types of people there... and sometimes (like tonight), there are both. The first is the pissed off guy. Perhaps his girlfriend upset him. Perhaps he's not as drunk as he'd like to be. Maybe he's too drunk. Regardless, he's pissed off and doesn't laugh at ANYTHING. "Fuck you, comic! I'm not laughing at your shit. I'm too pissed to laugh."

The other is the girl that's simply too good to laugh at the jokes. Perhaps she's better than the level of comedy being used. Or, most likely, she's too stupid to get the joke but smart enough that she doesn't want to look too stupid. Whatever the reason, she doesn't laugh either. She just sits there and has the "is this over yet?" look on her face.

I guess live comedy isn't for everyone (I abso-fucking-lutely love it, however). What I don't understand is this... If you paid $10 to get in the door... FUCKING LAUGH. If you don't want to be there, leave. I think that is one of the greatest things about being an adult. You don't have to eat all of your vegetables. It's okay to spoil your dinner with ice cream. And you don't have to be anywhere you don't want to be.
