How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I had a great time. Ted is very engaging and almost childlike in his enthusiasm. If you read the script, you probably wouldn't laugh out loud, but I was laughing all night, because Ted really makes it work. Overall, I'd say Ted was more "fun" than "funny". Although each"bit" is based on a magic trick, the entertainment comes from the way Ted interacts with the audience. Which is not to say you have to worry about being picked on. My date and I were right in the front, and Ted was great about sensing he could play with me but that she wouldn't enjoy it. I've never seen a comic who works the crowd with that kind of sensitivity to who will enjoy it and who won't.
