We saw the "Comics With Attitude" show on a Tuesday night with about 15 other audience members. The all-male lineup included several California-based performers whose one-dimensional material was lame and uninteresting, including rants with homophobic slurs and sexist "jokes" about women. I've seen many comedy...More
