Michael Ian Black is one of my favorite comedians and this was the first time I saw him live. I highly recommend seeing him if you like quirky comedy and/or are a fan of The State, Stella, Reno 911, etc...

I loved Michael Ian Black on The State as well as his cameos on VH1, Reno 9-1-1, and Strangers with Candy but I have to admit I was a bit disappointed with his stand-up performance. The stories dragged on a bit too long and the finales were a...continued

Nothing (more than a little) cerebral here . . . just comment on every day things when stretched to unbelief . . . a lot of people liked him, obviously, but if you're looking for wry, witty comment on the current (real) affairs of mandkind look...continued

I have adored Black for a long time and was thrilled to see him live. He was hilarious. The openers were great too. That is always a nice surprise, because usually there is an opener that bites...

Stale, low-brow jokes, poorly delivered. Subject matter included pooping, wifebeating, how black people are scary, "I was so high" story, baby shaking, etc. I wasnt offended, just bored.
That said, the opening acts by local comedians were excellent.

I was so pumped to see his live show and I wanted to love it...but didn't :( I always thought he was hilarious on TV, which is why I came out. I don't know what was missing but I just wasn't feeling it.
On the other hand, I thought Brandon...continued

Goldstar offered a "snooze, you lose" deal on this event. Every comedian that spoke that night was worth the price alone: Janine Brito, Nato Green, and Michael Ian Black. I'd love to see any one of them again.

I have seen Michael Ian Black three times the past five years. His act is always great and he always manages to out do himself each time. I am looking forward to seeing him again.

Like all comedians, MIB has a certain style of humor that appeals to certain people. Me, I find him insanely funny, and smart as a whip. I also love that he is quick; How scripted his show is is impossible to tell, but when he makes off-the-cuff...continued

M.I.B.: On the mark, as usual. Found myself laughing all day today thinking about his performance last night. Wonderful evening!

Michael was very good. Lots of laughs! And the two openers were funny as well. Drinks and food, a bit expensive, but that is to be expected. But Cobb's is a great venue.
