The show and presentation was great -- and of course the main objective was to support the foundation. However: I don't know if it was due to the acoustics, the sound system or the performers' delivery, but significant portions of the comedians'...continued

The Wilshire Ebell is a lovely old theatre, very classy. The show had its ups and downs. Ray Romano was excellent as was Fred Willard and Peter Gallagher. It was nice seeing and hearing Doris Roberts as well.

Terrific, well-run event. Terrific cause. Terrific lineup. Comics were first rate - even Tom Arnold. Venue (Wilshire Ebell Theatre) was storied and right sized. Could've done without the musical stylings of Peter Gallagher at the end, but the...continued

The comedians were very good. A couple of them spoke very fast and was sometimes hard to understand but for the most part very funny. It was great to see these guys representing and standing up for the Myeloma Foundation. Nice surprise to see...continued

Great comedians, great venue, and a worthy cause. Only two issues: self parking was only on surrounding streets and difficult to come by. However, glad we self-parked, since the line for valet to retrieve cars after the show was around the block....continued

Main performer Gary Shandling cancelled and there was a substitute vocal perfomer that really didn't fit with the event. Ray Romano was very good.

Ray Romano, Tom Arnold, Dom Irrera and Colin Quinn were fantastic. Darrell Hammond was the only real disappointment for the evening, although he did admit he was not funny and not very smart, he just did impressions of people who were - main...continued

I would have given this five stars, but the sound system was awful. There was an echo which made it difficult to hear the jokes clearly.

The show seemed good but unfortunately I was seated in the balcony and couldn't see very well and couldn't hear the comedians very well. The sound seemed muffled. Ray Ronmao is always hysterical and a big hit and he carreid the show as usual. I...continued

It was for a good cause, but next year I'll probably just write a check and skip the event entirely. As for the so-called comedy: It was a total waste of an evening. Supposedly the comics present were among the best of the best - but if all...continued

Show was great but the parking situation was terrible. We waited an hour in the cold for the valet to return the car. I even asked for my keys back so i could get my own car but they said that cars are dispersed between three lots and one is...continued

Extremely Funny. They had Valet parking $10. Took awhile to get the car after the show but it was for a great cause and was very funny. Great seats.

We purchased tickets not knowing where we were going to sit and that was a bit frightening. We received front row loge seats, but what can you expect with 1/2 price tickets, right? At least we had front row.

I love Ray Romano, so I knew I...continued
