He's been better,
Feb 05, 2012
reviewer: from Cincinnati
I guess this is what you get when you are the last city on a tour ... a tired man doing a tired routine ... and slipping into a tired, defensive explanation why he thinks pot should be legalized (for revenue generation.)

 

He's brilliant ... possesses unbelievably funny and poignant insights into human nature and our own foolishness ... but like most men in their 60's (I'm a young 68) he needed a nap.

Not as good as I'd hoped,

reviewer: from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
I was a bit disappointed in his Philly show. He didn't seem to have his usual passion or anger which is his main draw,

Low energy.,
Jul 24, 2014
reviewer: from Montreal, Quebec
He's still smart, witty and can still go on a rant like nobody else can...but doesn't. Or not enough.

 

Maybe being in a foreign country made him awkward about doing political rants. He spoke a lot about politics, but kept explaining the context before getting to the point.A few high moments here and there, but overall... just nice.

 

You know? I was expecting anger, rants, acidic social commentary. And I got a nice old guy telling jokes and occasionally raising his voice to drop an F... bomb.

 

Wasn't bad, I enjoyed it, but it was just nice.

Very disappointed ,
Mar 16, 2014
reviewer: from Valencia,, California
This show was a rip off. $145.00 for a tired , no new material, unenthusiastic 1 hour and 10 minutes of rehashed DRIBBLE. The majority of the the crowd looked like they did not make it to shower Or to the closet for fresh clothes preferring their sweats and dirty jeans. The loud stoners with non stop forced laughs were not delt with by the Saban staff. LEWIS CLEARLY WANTED TO GET THIS OVER WITH AND GO HOME.

Very disappointing,
Mar 26, 2014
reviewer: from Los Angeles, California
Being a huge fan of Mr. Black's work, I bought these tickets months ago and was really looking forward to seeing him live. The show was uncomfortably lacking in entertainment value as well as his usually sarcastic and hilarious political insight. I left the theater feeling, well...sad. There was a very annoying woman sitting right behind me with a horrible forced laugh and all kinds of other noises at times that made absolutely no sense. I do hope that Mr. Black is feeling better now. I would go and see him again hoping for a better time of it and if I'm ever seated near someone so obnoxious again I'll move.
