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.

Tom Arnold and the other two comedians put on one of the best shows I have ever seen. He came on first then did a set inbetween each of the other acts and after. We laughed thoughout the entire show.

Description

n 1983 Tom Arnold got his first taste of stand-up comedy when he performed at open microphone nights at the University of Iowa. Tom’s comedy career had its ups and downs over the next several years until 1988, when he entered the Minneapolis Comedy Competition and won first place. With this victory in hand he decided to move to Los Angeles to pursue a stand-up comedy career. Once he hit Los Angeles, things happened fast.

That same year he was hired as a staff writer for Roseanne’s TV sitcom “Roseanne” (1988) and began to appear regularly on the show as “Arnie Thomas”. He and Roseanne were married in 1990, with Arnold converting to Judaism prior to the marriage. They formed Rapello County Productions to develop projects for themselves. Tom Arnold is the co-host of Fox Sports Net’s talk show “The Best Damn Sports Show Period” (2001). He also does voiceover work, and provides the voice for the “Oven Mitt” character in the TV commercials for the Arby’s restaurant chain.
