Comedy Club Etiquette
Cell phones, Blackberries: Turn them off or set them to vibrate. Never take a phone call during the show. If it can’t wait, find a place away from the show to take the call.
No Video! Comedy is one of the few art forms where you must work on your craft in front of others. The same away an artist would not want a song that wasn’t finished leaked, a comedian would not want his or her work out without consent.
Bluetooth Headsets: Turn them off. The blinking blue light is obnoxious.
No Flash Photography: It distracts and disorients everyone.
Do Not Heckle the Comedian: Heckling is interrupting the performance to upstage, disparage, or throw off the comedian. It is never acceptable, and the quickest way to ruin the show for everyone. It is also the quickest way to be humiliated in front of everyone.
Do Not Interrupt the Comedian: The common excuse for this is “I’m helping the comedian.” Comedians are professionals, they do not need help. That “help” just derails the show and wastes everyone’s time, same as heckling. Exception: If a comedian directly engages you in conversation, you are a-ok to respond. Some of the best comedy happens this way, and can make for a memorable experience. Be ready to let it go when the bit is over.
No Recording the Show: Same as a band, recording a stand-up routine violates the comic’s copyright on his material. Worse yet, a less-than-stellar performance some jerk puts up on the web can hurt the comic’s career. The infamous Michael Richards video is an extreme (justified in this rare case) example of footage released by a third party that ruins the performer’s career.
PDA – Keep it Tasteful: A comedy club is not the place for messy make-outs.
