Norm McDonald, you sexist piece of trash
BF's company has their holiday party every January, to coincide with the quarterly Sales Meeting. It was this past Friday, and this year's entertainment was to take us all to the Improv in downtown San Jose to see some comedian's.

The evening might have been enjoyable if there had been more comedian's.

I don't recall the first or second acts, just that they were local names & they actually had some humorous moments. Most of which was self-deprecating humor, but at least it was still humor.

Norm... ah, Norm. See, he's an SNL alum so I expect pretty poor comedic timing & humor. I was told by others in our group that no, he really was either drunk or drugged out on stage. He would start a "joke", forget his lines, and then drunkenly stumble into something else.

He (literally) seemed to not know what state or area he was in, or he probably would never have attempted any "joke" that bashed on how useless things like calculus and other sciences are in high school. On top of that, he spent a lot of time making "humorous" observations about the differences between men & women. Comments such as how women's sports are waste of time, that if a woman was that good at sports she'd be in the NBA, etc. I walked out to use the bathroom & never came back. One of the sales people was so appalled at the show that he tried to complain to the manager.

After the show BF & I went out with the CEO & a few other people - all of whom were also appalled at the show as well. I did tell the CEO that one good thing came out of this evening - this holiday party's entertainment managed to finally bump the horrible magician they'd hired years ago into the #2 spot for bad entertainment choices.

Why the hell do people deliberately go and see crap like this?

Oh, we went to Gordon Biersch beforehand. This was just supposed to be additional "fun".

They really had no clue who was at the Improv when they choose to do that.

I can't answer the later.

As for the former, I go to the holiday party (always in January, to coincide with the quarterly sales meeting, so really it's an end of year summary of profits party) to hang out with some of the people I like from BF's company, and to support him in his networking.

There are actually a bunch of interesting people at his company.

In the past, most of the people at the functions were decent. The ones that weren't were easy enough to avoid. That might still be the case now, but the company's grown large enough that I don't get to talk with most people there an more.
