Laugh it up with the finalists of the most recent season of NBC's hit competition series Last Comic Standing, including winner Rod Man. The recipient of an NBC development deal for his efforts, Man's unusual delivery features nervous rambling peppered with unexpectedly sharp punch lines. He'll be joined by fellow top 5 comics Nikki Carr, who commands the stage with powerfully delivered jokes; tough-talking Rocky LaPorte; uproariously nerdy Joe Machi; and Lachlan Patterson, whose lackadaisical delivery masks a scathing wit. Five utterly unique talents on one stage, each singled out as one of the funniest people in the country by Last Comic Standing judges Roseanne Barr, Keenan Ivory Wayans and Russell Peters. Learn More

Perhaps the speakers sounded better in the orchestra section, but most people around me at the upper reaches of the balcony couldn't hear much. And no, I'm not hard of hearing, as the person opening her wrapped candy made a big impression on our section for several minutes.
I also wanted to like Patti LuPone more. I knew she wasn't going to sing Broadway standards, but the monologue delivery between songs seemed a bit stale. In fact it sounded right off the CD, in other words, rehearsed. The musicians were a good bunch though - bass was left to the synthesizer to recreate, which seemed a bit odd. I liked the guitar solo pieces the best, maybe because then we could hear Patti. Now that I think about it, her encore - sans mic - may have sounded the best in the balcony, and seemed the least rehearsed. We could actually hear her then, and apparently all the candies had been unwrapped.
My wife said she was glad we only paid Goldstar pricing for the show - it made the pain of the expenditure seems less. I can't disagree.
