As big "Daily Show" fans, we've been lucky enough to see two of the program's correspondents at Cobb's in recent months: John Oliver back in May, and now Wyatt Cenac. I was a little surprised that Cenac, who gained some attention last year for an...continued

I generally like Wyatt's segments on the Daily Show but I thought this performance was dry and uninspired. It didn't help that the opening acts had very similar styles. I see a fair number of comedy shows and this one was the first time I've...continued

I have enjoyed just about everything I have seen Cenac do on the Daily Show; this performance at Cobb's was a disappointment. He's not much of a physical/facial comedian; he even wore a hat that covered much of his face for the entire show. All...continued

He was very dark and not like his Daily Show persona.. Also, expected him to be more political - which he wasn't. And parts of it looked like he didn't want to be there. Also - this just was strange - I don't think he moved once. just stood there,...continued

Funniest show I've seen In a long time. Cenac was absolutely hilarious. His humor was intelligent and fair. He didn't take cheap shots for an easy laugh. I laughed so hard my cheeks hurt afterwards.

The two opening comedians were terrible. Such bores.
Wyatt was okay, but not great like most of the other comedians I have seen at Cobb's. The waiter was prompt with the requested cocktails.

I went, like many I'm sure, because I like his work on the Daily Show. His stand-up routine was just okay for me. I seems like a matter of growing pains, or unbalanced expectations. He came across as just another stand up comedian...funny, but not...continued

Wyatt Cenac is very smart and very funny. This is the 2nd time I saw him, and he was even better this time. The 2nd comic was really bad and it was hard to watch him. The first comic, Natasha the tranny, was very good.

Wyatt did a lot of new material. Jokes specific to being in San Francisco and his recent travels. His interactions with the audience were really funny and genuine. Some of his jokes were from his recent Comedy Central special but they were tweeked...continued

i wanted to love wyatt's set, but his stage mannerisms really affect the tone of the show. he takes time to think about his jokes, often referring to his notes (i think this is fine, but he seems to pretend he's not doing this by constantly...continued

Great performance by Wyatt Cenac. Good by MC. Other performer not so funny.
Overall, loved the show. Appreciated the thoughtful humor.
Casual situation.
Drinks pricey, so the event becomes more expensive with 2 drink minimum.

We had just seen Paul Mecurio from the Daily Show a few weeks before and did not stop laughing for more than 30 seconds during the entire show. So, we had high expectations for another one of the Daily Show's comedians. Sadly, we were a little...continued

The comedy club was very nice and in a great location for dinner before or after. We got in line 90 minutes before the show and stood outside for 15 minutes till they opened the doors. Got seats in 2nd row of tables in the center and ate "pub...continued

Wyatt was very good, the lead female was good. The second comedian was totally unfunny. I kept waiting for him to end his routine. He should find another calling.

I first saw Wyatt Cenac in Medicine for Melancholy, where his dry and mellow humor played well. However, his low-energy persona is not engaging in a stand-up format. He is obviously intelligent and thoughtful but overall, I was disapointed by...continued

If you can get in on the free tickets it is TOTALLY worth it. I watch the Daily Show religiously and I've also seen Medicine for Melancholy so I'm familiar with Wyatt Cenac. He was really funny and the acts before him were also pretty...continued
