I get why audience microphones were encouraged to be switched on, but I don't need to hear other people chewing. The constant audience interjection (which seemed to mainly be friends of the organisers?) was unfunny, intrusive, and wasted about 20 minutes out of a one-hour show. It made the experience feel like being on the outside of a smug high-school clique with in-jokes. I could pay less than 9 pounds to sit in a pub and listen to the conversations on the next table and have just about the same amount of fun. I was so incredibly disappointed because I love Jess and Hench was the funniest thing I'd seen for years. This was rubbish though, through no fault of Jess herself.
