It seemed poorly organized. There was no will-call, they stayed late, and there were a ton of people that just walked in for free after the event started. I'm not hating, but why the heck did I pay to get in. The actual comedians were hit and miss. And trust me, I went wanting to laugh, but it was really hard with a couple of them.
