We are usually taken to our seats and so you have no idea of where you will be seated. We ended right underneath the speakers and while we had an excellent view the incredibly loud volume during the transition between scenes made me wish I brought ear plugs. So look up when you get to your seat and ask for a different seat if you are next to the speakers. Some of you may not mind and that's ok too. Have fun.

Request center or left seating, away from piano up-front right, so you can hear comedians better.

Tommy was very funny, heard some of his jokes at a previous show. Would go see him again, would highly recommend if you've never seen his show.
