MC'ing a show at Gotham on Saturday, this comic blew the light. I had to clap him offstage (aaawwwkwarrrd!).
Afterwards, he apologized for his behavior saying, "I just didn't see the light."
This is would a decent excuse except that once the light went on, he asked, "Was that the light?"
I replied from the side, Yes."
btw - Favorite thing about his act - every time audience member talked during his set, he scolded them with, "Hey, don't steal my thunder" - which was funny as he wasn't exactly lighting it up.
