    Wow. He sounds like a rather unprofessional, immature jerk. You handled yourself very professionally, Adam, and I hope this didn’t endanger your position at Gregory’s.

    See, with that kind of response, he’d be the one I’d ignore and fail to see an extended hand. So yeah, that’s a bigger bridge to nowhere than that Alaskan one… let that puppy burn.

    I have a couple cans of gasoline if you need it.

    Ugh. I had someone at a job who kind of did that. Made me look like an idiot for the boss. Napalm that sucker!

    I agree that he was trolling for applause at your expense and it was unprofessional.
    I think you handled the email exchange very professionally.
    I hope he doesn’t have enough clout to bad-mouth you to other people in the business.
    I have no doubt that when you are a regular headliner you will treat the emcees and features the way you wanted to be treated on your way up.

    I carry backup matches for potential bridges.
    Biz is a self-important douche. Fuck him.

    this line kills me: “You, as the emcee, do not get to tell the headliner how to do their job.”

    no shit, headliner captain obvious. that is why you ASKED him, one comic to another, to consider changing something. so unprofessional of him to treat you like shit, unworthy of contacting him. he could have simply said, “sorry, but no. i will do my show the way i like to do my comedy and you might want to not emcee that night if it makes you uncomfortable.”

    but to be so angry that you contacted him? burn that bridge. he sounds like a conceited ass.

    i thought your email was incredibly professional and yet friendly. curious to see how the gregory’s will choose to handle this.

    also, if you could text or email me his name, i’d like to know when to avoid the improv here in pittsburgh. thanks.

    I’ve heard a bunch of stories from my brother, who books talent for a club, that sound similar. I give you credit for speaking up when plenty of people probably sit on their feelings for the sake of keeping the headliner happy.

    I can’t help but think this guy has a low IQ and dick size.
