The Dinosaurs of Comedy provided an excellent evening of comedy exceeding about anything we've seen at The Punchline. Every one of the four comedians had something special to offer but Mr. Pearl was particularly super, despite some offbeat humor...continued

I have seen these guys before and they did not disappoint. The opener was Patrick McDermot and he had a very good set which included some new material. Then Michael Meehan entered the universe and all hell broke loose with laughter spilling out...continued

There are some FAKE reviews in here, because Johnny Steele was a no-show, so anybody mentioning him is a ringer and probably didn't even attend the performance. 'Bubbles' middle-aged whining about not being able to get laid is not only so-ooooo...continued

Hilarious! Laughed so hard I cried. Wonderful mix of masterful comedians. The surprise appearance of Johnny Steele made an already great line up even better. Don't be fooled by the self-deprecating name of "Dinosaurs." There is nothing stale,...continued

Joke-per-second Steven Pearl and sexually starved Larry "Bubbles" Brown were A+. And an encore, so-wonderfully-informal vaudeville one-liner bit by Johnny Steele and Brown was priceless. Go.

The best yet!
I would have stayed for the second show but I was
wiped out from laughing so hard.
I really hope the Punch Line repeats this wonderful show on a
weekend night.

VERY funny guys - Meehan not so much, but the rest were great! and I liked the encore performance by Steele and Brown - Brown could barely get his lines out, he was laughing so hard!

These veteran comedians sure pack in the laughs! It was a great show and I've been going to their shows over the last 25 years. I'm a huge fan and plan on going to the next one. It was even better than I expected! The venue is great and there...continued

I loved this show. These guys are the best! Even though Johnny Steele couldn't join us because of a family emergency, the show was great. Michael Meehan is a great host--always fresh and exciting. Larry Brown killed and Steven Pearl Rocked Da HOT...continued

Always like to see these guys. Reminds me of when SF had the big comedy boom in the 80's.

Though it was downtown, parking was easy as it's free on the street after 6. The show was great, all the comics rocked especially Mike Meehan. Best was the surprise closing set by Robin Williams. Good times...

All the comedians who appeared were good. Really liked Mike Meehan.
Johnny Stelle was a no show so I feel a little ripped off.

The show was just OK. Meehan did a good opening act and was a good host of the show. I've always enjoyed Bubbles Brown, there was no disappointment there. Pearl is as quick and witty as ever. The special guest, that lady, was far from funny. The...continued

This was a GREAT event! All of the comics were hilarious. Wish you would do this event on the weekend and with more of the "dinosaurs" from the 80's -- they were funny, quick-witted and thoroughly enjoyable!

Great Time Great Comics. Seeing Meehan and hearing his letters to his friends was hilarious. Pearl's rants and Al Pacino telling jokes were funny as all hell. Bubbles was riot. Johnny Steele brought everybody back to life and then the vaudeville...continued
