Overall, I was very disappointed! I went to this event with 5 other people, including my in-laws who are in their 60's. This location was completely inappropriate. The tickets say general admission, which would imply that there is no assigned...continued

Dick Gregory....great! More than worth the money.
Paul mooney.... Biggest disappointment ever! The emcee comic was funnier than he was.
On the whole, event not well organized.

Dick Gregory & Paul Mooney were great. Even the opening act was good. However, the promoters of this event didn't know what they were doing. They over sold the tickets.

I'm sure that the show was probably great, but I wouldn't know since my daughter and I weren't able to actually see it! Unfortunately, the vendor sold more tickets than they actually had seats for-excluding the VIP seats which they said they still...continued

This was the WORST event ever. Not only was it unorganized it was terribly oversold. The event coordinators (Resoii Entertainment 443-930-0033) were unprofessional and I would suggest that Goldstar not blemish their name with continuing to do...continued

This event was poorly hosted. I, along with numerous others, had confirmed ticket purchases in advance; we arrived early (I got there at 8:00pm) and we were standing outside in the rain and were turned away. We were told the event sold out,...continued

PLEASE NOTE THAT MY RATING HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE PERFORMANCE!! We were not allowed into the venue due to a communication problem between the promoters, Resoii and Ent. and Goldstar. My friend and I were excited to attend as it was the first...continued

Dick Gregory was funny and insightful. Paul Mooney was dry and not funny. Too many N words and an OJ joke. Geez. Sit down old man.

Loved Dick Gregory. At 82 years old, still witty. Paul Mooney wasn't as funny as in the past.

I guess the audience was predominately AfricanAmerican, and both presenters targeted them. The Caucasions in the audience may have been somewhat uncomfortable. Sound system was a little weak in the back of the room.

I think the comedians performance was in the wrong order of relevance. Paul Mooney should have been the first GoC to perform because he is not as funny as Dick Gregory. Plus, Paul Mooney was a little too casual in his performance. Paul was Very...continued
