In the same way that you probably wouldn't get arrested for shitting in your manager's desk drawer, but you certainly wouldn't be getting promotions any time some.
I couldn't disagree with you more. Every other week I hear about an act who isn't getting gig off some promoter or another because they have ripped off someone elses' material. It is a VERY big deal on the stand up circuit.
And if you carry on, I will punch you in the throat.
Yeah, but it must be difficult not to nick other stand-ups' material, given that 99& of you lot have basically the same 7 or so jokes between you? These, of course, being - "What is it with you men?...", "What is it with you women?...", "My girlfriend and I split up...", "My boyfriend and I split up...", "So I was watching a porn movie, having a wank...", "So I was on the internet, having a wank..." and "So I was watching my own needy reflection in a mirror, having a wank...".
