Richard Lewis was amazing but the opening acts were weak. The guy presenting seemed bored, slow and tired....and the kid is in his 20s. The second guy had some good moments, but not consistently. The contrast just showed how talented Richard Lewis...continued

The first 2 comics were great, but the headliner was horrible. Neither myself or any of my friends liked it, he was very hard to follow. By the reaction of the audience I don't think we were alone on this feeling. It seemed like Richard Lewis...continued

This gets 2 stars merely for the opening act - that guy was AWESOME!! Richard Lewis was all over the place - there was no act. He was just scrambling around and talking, talking, talking. It was a little weird...

The Australian guy who opened was awesome! However, Richard Lewis is all over the board - can't even finish a thought. Funny at times but exhausting to watch

I really enjoyed Jim Short (he should be a headliner), but Richard Lewis was mumbling, couldn't keep his train of thought and was not very funny.

The warmup act was terrific - the Australian guy - what was his name again?

Richard Lewis' act was lackluster. As I looked on, the word that kept crossing my mind was, "Tweeked". Now I enjoy high-energy entertainment - yet Lewis' act was more...continued

Richard Lewis has the amazing ability to tell interconnected tangental stories and keep you laughing the whole time. I'm a bit perplexed by other reviews saying he didn't have an act, as the stream-of-consciousness, tangential ranting has always...continued

The two opening comics were good, but the headliner's performance could be described with one word, "refund". He just wasn't funny. The crowd was mostly silent (with the occasional drunk laughing) during his set. Many people used the opportunity...continued

Although I have watched Curb Your Enthusiasm, I didn't really know what Richard Lewis would be like (I don't remember seeing him in any episodes). I enjoyed the 2 opening acts, but Richard Lewis came onto the stage like he just had a speed-ball...continued

Both warm-up comedians were good which is an unusual treat. Richard Lewis is starting to lose his mind but was still amusing, maybe only because he is "Richard Lewis."

There were three acts (actually more like two and a half). The middle act (unfortunately, I can't remember his name) beat Richard Lewis' performance. That wasn't only my opinion but 7 of 8 people in my group liked the second act better. Richard...continued

I felt like I paid him to be his psychologist for an hour or so... there was no humor to his selfdepricating nonesense, which got old really fast. There was no comedic timing or anything since it was all said in runon tangents that made no sense.

He rambled so fast and uninterrupted it was like listening to Richard Lewis' stream of consciousness.

Not funny, not connected to audience, not relevant. Neither my wife or I felt it was worth the time or $. To pay $60 for an hour and a half comedy show is really steep expecially if the comics aren't great, and the headliner is poor.

Parts of Richard's schtick were pretty funny, but there was a lot of deadwood in between.

Seriously. The MC and opening act were pretty funny, but Richard Lewis was not. I spent most of the time confused because I couldn't understand him. I actually felt sorry for him. Oh well, we still had fun - The club was awesome. It was easy...continued

We enjoyed the opening two comedians--it was our first time seeing Nato Green, and he was terrific! We thought RIchard Lewis was amusing at times, not hysterically funny, actually underwhelming. I don't think any performer should ever tell an...continued
