What a great show! Brings back memories of watching Roller Derby on TV as a kid mixed with the tension of a high-school football game. The Bay Bombers are a great team (the women rock!!! and the guys are entertaining) and we look forward to seeing...continued

I grew up watching the Bombers on TV and had never been to a live Roller Derby match before.

It was hilarious and loved every minute of it. It's pure camp and is a lot like watching a wrestling match. I won't say the action is "fixed" but I...continued

It is what it is. Entertainment. Evidently more people are enjoying roller derby especially since it's revival on TV20. I've been going since the late sixties and I'm thrilled to see the Bombers back at Kezar.

The logistics here were so annoying I just can't give it too many stars. It took forever to get inside as the will call line was very long. We got there at 7:50pm for an 8pm bout and didn't get inside until 8:30. Once inside, we realized our...continued

I am an old Roller Derby fan and of course I enjoyed every minutes of it. I brought three people who had never been to live action and they also loved it. Even if the event is rigged those guys are so good on their skates and they do put on a good...continued

I loved it! A total throwback to the 1950s in every way! Had a great time -- and was exhausted by show's end. Lali is the star, to say the least! The men could use a kingpin like her to headline their half. The addition of #40 for the last match...continued

Not much to add over what others have already written. Worth going once if for nothing more than the people watching. In many ways I found that more entertaining than the roller derby! You may find it tacky, stupid, and be embarassed to tell...continued

We had a great time--Only draw back was the ONE line for will call was so long we missed 10 mins. When we got inside there was no one to show was where to find seats and sections not marked well at Kezar but all in all we are going to go again.

I would not recommend this event. It was poorly organized; extremely understaffed for everything. The wait for will call ticket holders was disorganized and an insane wait; only one window and initially only one person working same. The event...continued

Took 2 kids to see the show for the first time. Surprised at how packed it was! Hilarious fun. Very WWF-like antics. Great inexpensive event that is totally family friendly! Go early to pick up tix at Will Call as the line got really long. ...continued

I enjoyed the athletic and sport part more than I did the fight theater aspects.

I suppose that roller derby has defined itself that way, so that is part of the show, but the Wrestlemania elements do not appeal to me that much.

If you haven't been out to Roller Derby, you've been missing out. This was my second derby and while the rules are still a mystery to me, I had a blast. Go Lali! And get there early.

Um, this was really, really stupid. $9 seems like a cheap way to find out if you like roller derby, but you'll never get those hours back.

Great casual fun for the whole family! The mock fights are just as theatrical as I remembered as a kid. I really enjoyed watching the little ones cheer on their hometown favorites.

We showed up with 21 people in tow to celebrate my birthday. Because we had a caravan of six cars, it wasn't easy getting tickets out to everyone from Will Call because groups showed up in intervals. They went in at different times and found ALL...continued

I enjoyed my first time at the Roller Derby. I remember watching it on tv as a little kid and how much fun it was. Very entertaining and the whole vibe of being at Kezar stadium for the first time was pretty cool too. I look forward to going to...continued

It was really entertaining and BRUTAL! I don't think I would go to see it again though. To me, it was a one-time, see what it's like event.

This was really cool. Venue was kind of shabby and getting tickets was a pain, but once inside, it was a great time. My 10 yr old son and his friends had a blast. Will definitely go back.
