This question is for Al Madrigal! So my boyfriend does some stand up and considers himself an innovative, out-of-the box comedian. Today he told me about a (very) out-of-the-box bit he wants to do and I casually mentioned I didn’t think it would work. The next thing I know, he’s having a drama queen meltdown, telling me I’m so unbelievably negative and critical and just overall the worst. Please explain how a passing comment could evince such a total overreaction?
Just tell him to quit acting like a baby & in the future not to run his half baked ideas by you and let you know after he works it out. That’s what my wife says to me.

Al Madrical: If you were to train me for four weeks for a stand-up comedy competition or a major audition, and had 2 million dollars on the line, what would the training look like? What if I trained for eight weeks?
Did you ever see Rocky 4? It’d look like the opposite of that.
