It was a little disconcerting that the doors didn't open up until about 5 minutes before the show, but everyone got time to find their seats and take in the ambiance without feeling rushed. Ushers were excellent.

Ate at the KC Cafe on the Terrace Level. Reasonable prices, great food, and no waiting. Ideal for having a civilized meal before the show.

The Jazz band was great. the comedy was very entertaining.

The Kennedy Center is such a wonderful place for any show.

Great value. Parking at Watergate after 5 p.m. is $12 instead of parking at Kennedy Center for $22.

David Alan Grier is a comedic genius! I loved him! I also enjoyed being introduced to Marina, and I am already familiar with "crazy" Faizon Love.
I only wish I could have seen David for another hour by himself.

I really enjoyed the show. David Alan Grier was awesome, and the band and other comedians were funny as well. This was a good line up and show that kept the entire concert hall laughing all night long.
