Richard Lewis is nuts but we knew that before! All the comics were funny and enjoyable and it was a great evening.

His performance was scattered and disorganized. Not always a bad thing but it made his comedy a little hard to follow and not as funny as it could have been.

I saw RL 20-some years ago, and he rambled and went off on tangents, but it all came back and was very funny. This time he just rambled and interrupted himself- sometimes 5 times in one sentence - and most times there was no pay-off. Kind of...continued

Richard Lewis is hands down one of the funniest comedians that ever graced the comedy club stage. He has been around forever and still manages to bring material that gets the crowd going. Unfortunately, the crowd at Cobb's this night was a...continued

Funny from start to finish.Ms. Slate as the opening and host was wonderful as usual. Saw her recently and so was delighted to hear her not repeat her act word for word. Next came Mark Pitta who has been a bay area staple for years. He is still...continued

Richard might be warming up for the following shows and there were some interesting moments but nothing shattering as it was in previous appearances I had seen.

Richard Lewis nothing short of amazing. He has never lost his edge, and is as funny as ever. If you have a chance to see him live, GO.

I used to love Richard Lewis, but he just was not funny at all. Would not recommend seeing him.

Goldstar did its part just fine, but the venue AND especially the "comedy" were horrid and - above all - not funny or amusing.
Venue - Richard Lewis began by pacing around the stage for 10 min waiting for the house to find a working microphone...continued

After reading the reviews of the show last year, my son wasn't so sure that he would enjoy it, but all four of us, my husband and myself and son and daughter, all thought Richard Lewis was very funny. We laughed a lot and were all glad we came....continued

Still has the touch and style of his original stand-up early years. (I could do without the drunk audience members, though.)

loved all 3; the headliner Richard Lewis, great as always; the middle guy Jim Herst, the Australian, was wonderful, he was hilarious; I had no idea he was going to be on, as the Goldstar didn';t list him and his name wasn't on the marquee outside...continued

The Richard Lewis show is always so "Richard Lewis". He's real, he's raw, and his humor is truth. That's what makes him so funny! He may not be for everyone but he's for me!

Richard was funny but a little ADD.
I guess that was part of the bit.
The guy before him was great!
Can't remember his name, sorry.

Lewis should hang up the stand-up. He was absolutely dreadful. He looked an emaciated crackhead and just rambled with no cohesion to his act, and very few laughs (well ones not at him).

OK, I love Richard Lewis. So I give him a lot of leeway. Almost didn't go because of the bad reviews, but I'm glad I did. He has aged not so gracefully, but still grabs you by the collar and drags you to the end of each story. We laughed a...continued

Richard Lewis has a special kind of humor and a very unique style of show. Little or nothing scripted, always different, and always hilarious. If you like stream of consciousness, ADD style, super brilliant, then you will like this!
