Very tiresome and repetitive rants and immensely frequent use of the 'n' word. Can't he be more creative? Only a few jokes were funny. The rest of the jokes were geared towards folks who think just like him. We will not see him again.

Stay home and save your money. He came on an hour late on a week night, I didn't laugh once, & he kept looking on his phone for jokes.
Plus the venue was cold cold cold. Like I said, stay home and save your money!!!

The venue was awful. The show started late and then ended 45 minutes later. The material Paul Mooney covered seemed disorganized and a couple times he checked text messages during performance. I've seen Mr. Mooney on several occassions in the...continued

You will not be dissappointed. I do not like comedy at all especially live comedy and I am still laughing!!! Excellent- I am so glad we attended and the VIP passes plus the food and champagne was well worth it- I really enjoyed the salmon burger...continued

I like the feel of his show. It feels like you are sitting in your living room, kicked back with a beer or a glass of wine in hand discussing the funny news and world events. It was awesome.

Paul Mooney was very disappointing because he was not into the show or audience. Too much profanity and not enough effort to give a positive show.

If you have strong objections to cursing or use of the N-word, you may struggle with his show. There is no denying the comic genius Mooney possesses, he is amazing on his feet (or when I saw him, in his chair, rather) ad-libbing. Some of his...continued

It was a fun venue. Love the the Black Rep Theatre. Paul became funnier towards the end. Don't know his humor that well but have heard some of his cds. He seemed tired and then gained some speed later.

He was late and told jokes from 5 years ago. Really lame. I've seen him perform at Cobb's and he was much more on his game then.

I went to the very first show of the series. Mr Mooney's flight was delayed. The show started late, and the first few minutes were stories that I had already heard on TV or YouTube. About half-way through Mr Mooney got into his groove - HILARIOUS!...continued

This event left me very sad. I had looked forward to be laughing my butt off into the new year. Mr Mooney was a huge disappointment to me and the two people who accompanied me. We left early. He was not funny. He was cruel, crass, rude, lewed, and...continued

The question is, "Did you enjoy it?" The answer is, "No." Maybe it was a way-off night for Paul Mooney, but he was dreadful ----our failing was to stay beyond the first 10 minutes.

The venue is very clean, very friendly folks working there and they went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Bartender went out of his way to refill our sparking cider a few times, staff offered us the dinner menu and made us feel at...continued

Great show. Paul Mooney is a straight up comic who keeps it real & no holding back when it comes to his stand up. He keeped it real & no holding back when it came to talking about everything & anything. Great when he was on on the Dave Chappelle...continued

I saw Paul Mooney on Jan. 7, 2012. It was the 10:00 show, which actually started at 10:45. I love risque humor, but Paul's "humor" was neither creative nor funny. I'm age 67 and I've seen many shows, however this relaxed conversational style, with...continued

The 9 o'clock show started at 10:47 -- the night after Christmas. He was yawning, we were yawning. But Paul Mooney is obviously a professional; he did his best to give the people their money's worth, and so he kept going and going, despite...continued

The greaters were very nice and pleasant, but the event started 30 minutes late. It was a little frustrating. They waited until we were inside and seated before they opened the bar and they made a huge deal out of where we sat and even announced...continued
