After ten minutes of this, I realized I didn't really need anything signed by this man, and I walked off to look at other stuff.
The point of all this is, I know you folks have had some experiences in meeting comics personalities (or hey, other artists/performers, let's open it up) where it may have soured you on the person. The question is, does it sour you on their work as well? I think I can still look at his art and enjoy it, but I know I will always have this memory in the back of my head, at the very least. I have friends who cannot watch certain actors because they dislike their political or religious beliefs, or behavior. Generally I can overlook that although there are certain people I just will not support (Roman Polanski comes to mind). Let's hear it -can you separate the person from the work?
