Saturday June 5, 2010 / 8:00pmScientist Turned Comedian Tim Lee
How was your experience?
We did not expect 3 comedians, so we certainly got more bang for not so much buck! If you went by audience laughter/applause, to my ears the Australian Tim Short got the most reaction followed by San Diegan Mal Hall, but headliner Tim Lee's wry, dry and lower-key performance certainly went over well too. His PowerPoint slides could perhaps use a little more graphic oomph, but they were hilarious. It was our first time at the Coronado Playhouse. It was easy to find, but it's a small (100-seat according to the website) venue and since it was free seating, I'm glad we got there early. We sat next to the aisle in the 4th row and it was perfect; no sore necks from looking up at the projection screen. "Will Call" turned out to be a table just inside the main doors, not at the box-office windows. Very practical, no-fuss procedure: the theatre volunteer at the table had a list of Goldstar purchasers, and ticked off attendees as they entered. No "tickets" were actually issued. Bring a jacket or wrap to wear while waiting in line for the doors to open, as there was a chilly breeze blowing off Glorietta Bay. Beautiful setting, though.
