This talented sketch comic is not a stand up comedian. Stand up is a whole different skill set than what Michael McDonald currently has. He tells stories like a funny friend at your dinner table - amusing, engaging, charming, but not stage...continued

I had no idea what to expect with him and stand up since I had only seen him on TV. But I will tell you I laughed my ass off.
Just remember when seeing a bigger headliner like him, you must get there atleast 30 minutes early if you want a decent...continued

Michael McDonald was very funny at kinda heartwarming at the same time. He can really tell a story. Cobb's ambiance and service was fine as always. Only thing is they crowd the tables in way too close. I'd suggest to them that they spread out...continued

Michael is a better comedy actor than stand-up guy.

Having read reviews from a performance M McD did in 2010, I am not sure why several reviewers trashed him. Perhaps he had an off night that time. That was definitely NOT the case last night, 5/31/12! He was hilariously funny with great timing,...continued

After a few minutes I realized I had seen MM last time he was at Cobbs.
His routine was pretty similar to the last time I had seen him.
He's a sweet guy and probably a nice person. I bet he'd be a great dinner guest. If you haven't seen him,...continued

Michael is very sharp and talented...I had hoped he would actually be more cutting than he was but it was good anyway; I have seen him before at the Improv in San Jose. This time he did Stuart which he did nto the first time...
I would see him...continued

First time I've seen Michael McDonald do stand up and I was not disappointed. I wasn't a particular fan of his on Mad TV, but recognized his talents and he incorporates his physicality into his act very well. Lots of good bits and hard laughter...continued

I enjoyed it but I was not familiar with some of the TV shows he joked about. Thanks

I saw the Friday 8 P.M. show. Got there 45 minuets early and was given great seats. I had their calamari appetizer which was very well prepared and plentiful.

The MC kind of bombed. Or was he just bombed? Folks laughed at his jokes but didn't...continued

Michael McDonald is talented and entertaining, and gave us a little of MadTV material as he knows he is most known for that. More would have been thrilling, but he was not there to do Mad TV, he was there to do Michael McDonald comedy, and he...continued

He is an overall storyteller. His comedy comes in the form of a ten minute anecdote and lacks the short quick punchlines seen with most stand up comedians. I enjoyed and smiled throughout his bit, but rarely found myself actually laughing. He...continued

Michael McDonald was hilarious. Since I had only seen him on MadTV, I was curious to experience his stand-up set ... glad I went! His approach was very casual, and he did deliver his comedy as if he was a friend having a conversation with you. ...continued

What's better than laughing at funny jokes for 90 minutes?! I love Michael McDonald from MADtv, so I knew this show would be good. He is hilarious! Cobbs is great too, good prices on beer, more food choices than I would have expected, and all...continued
