I love going to to JFS in Vancouver but this was something else! I can't believe that Sarah used a notebook to tell her jokes and her stand up was only 40 min., that felt very amateur and unprofessional for an international comedy star that she is. I thought she was hilarious on TV and the stand up on Feb. 23 did not meet my expectations at all. I won't see her again in person and the other comedian who opened the show was much better!

I’m a huge Silverman fan, but damn, for $98 a ticket, I was really expecting a polished show. If you want to “workshop” your jokes, there are plenty of “two-drink-minimum” clubs to do that on Tuesday nights.
Also, she didn’t even fill an hour! As she left the stage with a shrug and an “I did it! Bye!”, my partner and I just looked at each other, then our watches.
Sorry Sarah. That’s unfortunately the last Silverman ticket I spend my hard earned money on.

NOT THE RIGHT VENUE
[not a review at the Chicago theater, but still thought this is Germaine. The moderator will decide] Saw the show at the Masonic in San Francisco. Long time fan of Sarah Silverman’s comedy and was super excited to see her live. Unfortunately, the performance was a very raw work in progress. Nothing wrong with a work in progress but I’d expect to see that in a club with a cover charge or a two drink minimum entry. This show was billed as a tour with a title suggesting a (at least) mostly polished show. We spent about two hundred dollars expecting to see that mostly polished performance and instead sat next to 2500 or so other ticket holders who seemed to get as much if not more enjoyment yelling down a very stupid rude heckler who took issue with Sarah mocking the concept of the non-existence of hell. Really, why was that person there? Did she stumble into the theater directly from her catechism class having never heard of Sarah Silverman? I wish the show had been more “tour” ready. Still a fan, but disappointed in that performance

NOT “ALL AGES”!!!
Shame on Sarah Silverman and shame on Meridian hall for allowing a rating of “all ages” for a performance on a Sunday evening during elementary/high schools’ March break. Like really!?! Nothing else stated on what the show content would be so it led us to believe this would be a good laugh for all ages when it was nothing more than an embarrassment. I’m Rating 2 starts for “some” of the humour but it was truly ridiculously dirty and off-side. She makes Russell Peters look like a walk in a cherry blossom park - perhaps what she is going for but still… MARKET IT THAT WAY! Tell your audience, “don’t fork over your money unless you wanna hear raw, unedited and extremely disgusting humour. That would be ok! I honestly thought we were going to be listening to a role model type comedian making fun of the world & setting an example of a strong woman with a great attitude in a world full of chaos. But I was absolutely mistaken. Sorry Sarah. You’re a bit much - even for me! And that says a lot

I attended on Mother's Day with my adult daughter and sat in the second row. I have always been a fan of her comedy and political stance. In my opinion, this 7:00pm performance, she gave minimal effort with no enthusiasm, almost as if she was tired and just getting through the hour. I guess I expected fun Mother's day jokes and interaction with the woman in the audience-jewish mother jokes, etc. none of that-instead mostly stale and worn out monotone and flat-some condescending banter with a few vocal guests-a bit uncalled for and snarky. I wouldn't spend any more $$ to see her again, especially not the $250 that I spent for my tickets. The opening act was good.

HATE TO SAY IT, BUT...
I hate to say it, but the show last night was underwhelming to put it nicely. I love Sarah and have been a fan since Jesus Is Magic (almost 20 years!), but this was not a good show at all.
Her opening act (Rory, her boyfriend) clearly "phoned it in," getting only mild chuckles from his unpolished bits meant to 'crush it,' as he said, but I thought Sarah would knock it out of the park—unfortunately no. She also clearly "phoned it in" too with unpolished jokes and barely a crowd response beyond a handful of chuckles. Not a single hard laughing joke from either of them the whole night. Why was this a tour, when it was clearly unprepared? The jokes should be tested prior to going on the road.
Honestly, I would like my money and time back, but the venue was gorgeous, so there's that. 1 star extra for the venue.
