We won’t even bother commenting

From comedian Jim McCue‘s blog comes a report on an incident at (most likely, since the blog’s URL contains the words “in Tahoe”) the Improv at Harrah’s in South Lake Tahoe.

Bobby Slayton (“The Pit Bull of Comedy”) is onstage headlining and feature act McCue and the host (someone named “Howie”) are backstage in “a club that will remain nameless,” when some sort of ruckus occurs in the showroom…

Howie and I walked out and found an irate gay/Mexican guy… He was very upset and yelling that he was going to call G.L.A.A.D. and, after what happened with Tracey Morgan, he would get Bobby fired. Then, another woman came out. She’s angry about the show, but says to the first guy, “I’m not sure I approve of what you did in there [apparently he got on stage and went into a tirade], but I’m from San Francisco and we don’t condone gay bashing”.

You can tell where this is going. Slayton is “pulled from the remainder of the shows,” and according to the post’s headline, “suspended with pay.” McCue is bumped up to headliner.

H/T to Aaron Ward.

ADDENDUM: Here’s an interesting oldie from 2006. Sadly, there’s more where that came from. Just insert “political correctness” (with the quotes) into the Google search bar at the top of our center column.
