Make sure you get dinner tickets. With Dinner tickets you get to go 1.5 hours earlier and you get front row seats. If buying on Goldstar, you have to email Goldstar to have them make dinner reservations for you. It is free and worth it. The food is average priced, you get huge portions, and it tastes great.

He talked too fast, screamed too much, and used the " f " word too many times.

Description

Jeff Havens graduated from Vanderbilt University with a dream: to teach the young men and women of America about the beauty and poetry of the English language. After two years of teaching, however, Jeff made a startling and fateful discovery the English language is far too absurd to be taken seriously. So he embarked on a new quest: to make the people of America laugh, which ended up being far easier than trying to make his students excited about the wonders of passive voice.

In the last few years Jeff has performed his intelligent, high-energy act alongside Dave Coulier, Ralphie May, Auggie Smith, and dozens of other national acts. His comedy is a hilarious trip down the twisty, yellow brick road of our moronic native tongue, a charismatic combination of George Carlin (without the vulgarity) and Eddie Izzard (without the makeup).
