So we should just shut up and put up, Amanda? I'm really surprised that you came in here to explain stuff to Karla which I am sure she is well aware of and to suggest she does nothing. If we do nothing, then nothing ever changes and the comedians and the people booking them continue to think they are funny.
I'd write the letter to management and to the comedian involved. I would not expect a positive response if any response but at least that way I would know that I had done something to say this is not OK.
Not at all, I'm just saying I
wouldn't bother because I know it's highly unlikely it would make a difference, and knowing some comedians they do use it as fuel to keep doing it. I did say that she should write if she feels she has to, because I do think that (despite me personally not thinking it would make a difference if I did, so I wouldn't), that things do need to be said. People still do need to be told it's not ok.
Sorry I'm not really explaining it very well. I do think complaints should be made, even though for me personally, I think it can be a bit pointless (in terms of me thinking I could change things in this regard). I guess I'm just trying to say don't expect much if you do, but do it all the same, even though I personally probably wouldn't. Ahh I hope that makes sense.
Karla, F & E and anyone else, my apologies, I didn't mean it to come across like it did. Swirling vortex of crap in my brain at the moment, so all that is coming out is diarrhoea. Sorry, I didn't mean it to sound like I was telling Karla not to do it. She has every right to be offended, and every right to complain. If she feels compelled to complain, then she definitely should.
