Second well-known comic I've seen via Goldstar who acted like he was at death's door and rambled for an hour instead of performing. There were some good ideas in there but their delivery packed no punch. One of the openers, Nate O'Green (odd name...continued

This is the third time I've seen Richard Lewis, who I love in general. This was not his best performance, but it's hard not to enjoy it if you appreciate his humor, which I do. So, always good, but we can't be great every night.

This was not as good as I thought it would be. Richard with his long hair and jokes was not good.

I knew I would love Richard Lewis no matter what he talks about, he doesn't really have set jokes he just talks about his experienes. It was fantastic! Great show, Highly recommended.
The opening woman was alright and the second comedian talking...continued

The first 2 comedians before Richard Lewis were hilarious, thus the 2 stars but I did not find Richard Lewis funny at all. In fact it would be nice if he actually finished one joke that he started telling.

Richard Lewis is a stand-up classic. You can tell he's mastered his craft and I was surprised at the weird twist a lot of his jokes take. He's a true comic with the candor and problems to match.

it was hard to hear and he was bitter and didn't make sense and wasn't even close to funny. Also, staff was kinda bitchy.

Richard Lewis is awesome at any price. Getting tix at half off was a bonus.

Richard Lewis is an accomplished comedian, and perhaps this was a bad night or more likely he's simply cruising through his performances this late in his career. He told the audience he has no routine, and so the show was a series of random...continued

Richard Lewis is a living legend. His set was more stream of consciousness storytelling than a pre-planned hour of jokes and punchlines. The two openers were well selected matches for his comedy style, which rounded out the night.

he was all over the place at first and it took me a while to get used to his "style" -- totally A.D.D....but ended up really enjoying it. [I wished it was longer...]

Only thing that put a damper on the night was the waitress who was...continued

Enjoyed Richard Lewis. Like his rambling, tangential style and have always loved his work. I loved that he arrived two minutes before curtain, and flew out to his car before the applause ended. He embraces his neuroses, and this is fun to watch...continued

I took my father-in-law to the show for his birthday and it was a great idea as both my husband and I and my in-laws really liked the show. Lewis is great, still has so much energy and enthusiasm and the female comedian before him was pretty fun...continued

Richard Lewis and his opener Nato Green were both very funny. The mike wasn't working for Lewis for the first five minutes or so and he was quite funny related to the difficulty; however, we were about halfway back and could not hear most of it. I...continued

The first two acts were good opening acts; a great wramup; but the main act dissappointed. Richard Lewis was terrible. Seemed like an embittered old man... that maybe got two laughs the entire show.

The two opening acts were much funnier than Lewis. Lewis just kinda rambling on for 45 mins. For every 3 sentences he started, he only finished 1. The audio setup in the Cobb's were not great, speaker volume was too low for the setting. While...continued

Attended the 8 pm event on Friday. Several bits were funny but Richard Lewis' style was rambling and sometimes confusing on where he was going with it. I do like Richard as a stand-up comic.
