San Diego, CA
I went to the Doug Benson comedy show at the HOB last Friday and I was very very disappointed! I have never been the one to complain, but we left the House of Blues venue with a very bitter taste in our mouth that night. Apparently this was one of the first comedy shows done at the HOB San Diego and I suggest they brief their security staff prior to the next one if anyone shows up.A few friends and I attended the show and were very disappointed to have up to 6-7 hecklers sitting next to us on the right side of the room. They were not only rude, but they were extremely disrespectful to the people around them as well as both of the performers. The yelling and talking continued throughout the entire show, so bad that we couldn't even hear the performers. It completely ruined the experience for us and we felt like we wasted our money. To top off this awful experience we complained and security did NOTHING! It was so bad that it got to the point where Doug Benson himself had to stop the show and say something to them! You know it is bad when the performer has to stop and say something.Afterwards we asked to speak to a manager. Not only was this just our group complaining but almost everyone that was sitting in our area. Once we found the manager he not only did not care that we were unhappy and that there were about 15 of us complaining but he said we should have complained sooner.This is absolutely uncalled for and a total waste of money. I do not suggest that anyone goes to a comedy show at the HOB. It was an awful experience!
