How was your experience?
NORM MACDONALD is a dark guy, he's intelligent but low key about it. Nice to see a comedian who doesn't feel the need to bounce around the room and talk about his nether-regions. The two opening comedians were great. The host whose name escapes me was a funny guy. Also, not dirty but funny (how rare). The 2nd comedian was a seasoned pro named JOHNNY STEELE, a local favorite. He was pretty hysterical and had lots of good energy. He had us laughing a lot more than we expected (most of the opening comedians at Cobb's are not funny - where should I begin?). We had seen STEELE before and he didn't disappoint. So intelligent, quick, and FUNNY. He did local, regional and national humor. Hard to keep up with the wit but that's what was entertaining about him as a performer. A real treat for those of us who love comedy and read. SO, GO SEE JOHNNY STEELE AND NORM MACDONALD IF YOU EVER GET A CHANCE.
