Was anyone else driven to distraction by the audience's whooping and cheering, or am I just an insufferable curmudgeon?


I have that same problem. This might be mean, but I always suspect people of laughing out loudly just to demonstrate that they understood a joke or pun. And that just pisses me off. :)

I have the parallel problem when people applaud constantly at a stand-up gig.
