My husband and I like to attend comedy shows when we travel to kind of wind up the evening out. This was our second trip to Crackers. The first time the warm up acts were just "ok" but the headliner was hysterical! This past time, both warm up acts not funny, but the headliner was pretty good. The part that made it all not so great, was the constant distraction from a very drunk guy sitting almost directly in front of us. He was talking SO loudly to his group that it was about all we could hear and provided a severe distraction to us, and especially the couple in front of us, who were almost at the same table with him. He kept talking, and his wife/gf kept shushing him, but then it's almost as if he got louder. All the while, people in the general area kept looking at each other, and rolling their eyes, like "OMG is anyone ever going to tell this guy to shut up?" and finally the guy in front of us, politely asked him to be quiet, and the guy went off taunting the couple until words were exchanged and the drunk guy got up, screamed obscenities at the couple asking him to please be quiet so they could enjoy the show, and then the headliner got involved, basically stopping his show and trying to make light of an uncomfortable situation for many. The rest of the guys group got up and left, but also felt the need to exchange words with several people on their way out. All of this made me think about the fact that none of the employees were willing to say anything, and even if they did, if it got heated, none of them looked like they were prepared to deal with the situation effectively. Comedy can sometimes be controversial, which can lead to volatile situations, especially when liquor is involved. I think they could benefit from someone, or someone(s) monitoring the crowd for this type of behavior, as well as a disclaimer when you buy your tickets, to let you know if you step out of line you will be ejected. Period.
