this is a serious problem in the stand-up industry. Before everyone had a camera 24/7 comedians would perfect their material by trial and error... Say the joke one way as oppose to another, add words, take away words, overall just work the bit til they felt it was right. that is no longer possible cause someone tapes every show you do and then posts it online. This forces comedians to constantly need fresh material (no one will pay for shows that has material they have heard several times.) which in turn causes the industry to be watered-down...am i condoning this nutjob's actions, no! Im just stating that this problem is bigger than one guy at a comedy show
I understand that. But i have never seen or heard a comics material on youtube or wherever before a special. You have to be actively searching for that sh*t to come across it. But you do have to be a special kind of d!ck to pay money to see a show then record it , like how can you enjoy the experience and record at the same time.
