I just met a famous comic, a couple weeks ago who should remain nameless, but we'll just say he doesn't deserve to be, in fact he shouldn't even be famous at all, but he is. He was at my home club, and I didn't really talk to him much, I just observed. Of, course, about 10 minutes into the features set, he comes into the lobby and bitches about the feature talking about Grandmas, because his first joke is about Grandmas. So he goes back into the club, and does his set. After the club cleared out, I went in and introduced myself, and the first words out of his mouth were not nice to meet you, they were, "Man that feature, he's touching on all my topics, I can't do my set after he's already touched on all my topics." After he said that, I decided I didn't want to talk to him anymore.

A true headliner can follow ANYTHING. Your grandma joke bombed, because it sucked. The features joke was better. I'm so sick of this game of not using the funniest comics, and using features who suck to cater to BITCH ASS headliners, while funny features struggle for work. If you are headlining an A club, and you can't follow certain guys, you should not be headlining. So, let me get this straight, you don't want me to be too funny? FUCK YOU, now I'm gonna smoke your ass and take your job BITCH! And stop bitching about dirty comics too. Funny is funny, people don't laugh at dirty jokes, just because they are dirty, they laugh because it's funny. Laughter is involantary, If you tell a dirty set up with no punchline, no one will laugh, if it's clever, they will. So if you want to be clean, be clean, thats fine, but stop BITCHING like little girls. Watch the movie comedian, with Jerry Sienfeld, he has to follow a guy who puts on a gimp outfit with a ball gag. Sienfeld didn't give a fuck, he went on stage and did his shit. Because, he is a PROFESSIONAL! He can follow ANYONE. So stop acting like BITCHES and be better comics, blame yourself for not being funny enough, or not being "ready" to headline. So this guy sucks, and so do others like him. Be true to comedy, FUNNY IS FUNNY!

How famous was this guy? Famous like Screech from Save By The Bell or famous like Chris Rock famous?

Right on the head. It WAS Screetch. I was trying to keep from mentioning his name, but since you nailed it. I feel it's only fair to tell you.

Bill, you may want to view this . . .

Funny story: Apparently, he told a bit on Bob and Tom that was a frienf of mine's, with the EXACT wording . . . The real kicker? My friend told the SAME BIT on B & T the year before.

There's more to that story, but I've probably already said too much.

I've heard a lot of stories too.

I don't throw that "Hack" word around without seeing it first hand, but there is a LOT of comics out there that aren't happy with him. BTW the webpage is hilarious.

Screech sucks
