Lewis was fantastic, should name his tour, "Welcome to the Real"! Dallas welcomed him with open arms and crazy enthusiasm! Great event, great time.

Chicago theater on Saturday, October 6. I love this guy but I kept wanting to scream from the balcony “Get Angry”. He is 70 now and he also said that he recently was in Ireland and had pneumonia. I noticed his breathing was a little off. Maybe it was hard for him to give as much because that affected his lungs. I don’t know what it was but I thought it was a lot of money for that we got. I had read some reviews before going to the show and some people complaining about too much Trump in this show but there was hardly any Trump. I felt like Lewis was too concerned about his reviews and maybe the 10% of right wing that complain About what he says.. I think he should stick to what he’s great at and give it 110%. I also think smaller venues would be good for his comedy. The Chicago theater was a little big. Seeing him up from the balcony was not enjoyable. Only wish him the best. Maybe he’s tired of getting angry about everything. Maybe it was just an off night. Still a fan.

We saw Lewis about two years ago at the same venue. At that time we left with our sides hurting from his performance. Last night Oct 6th was completely different. The warm up act was mediocre at best. Started out ok but soon turned to Trump bashing and continued. Lewis came out and started out with the Chicago marathon and continued with bye week in football. After that the show turned on and off about bashing Trump and Republicans. Some of the times it felt uncomfortable if it was funny or not. Some laughter from the crowd seemed to be uneasy laughter. I think Lewis has lost his steam and watching his show was nothing more than watching late night TV which I personally have stopped doing. I'm hopeful that Lewis can find his mo jo again but I won't be buying anymore tickets to his show anytime soon. Too bad that we can't find anything else funny or any other source of material other than an anti- Thump rally that cost 100 bucks a seat.

I went to the Thursday night show. It started at 8:10 with the lamest backup comic I've ever seen, and he was on for almost an HOUR! Terrible delivery, openly forgot some of his jokes. About as topical and timely as a buggy whip; he droned on forever about Gwyneth Paltrow's "conscious uncoupling," which was, what, about five years ago? Then there was a 20-minute intermission! Then Lewis Black came on for an hour, which was great! Then he left for a couple of minutes, then came back to start his live podcast. He went about ten minutes, then handed the microphone over to some guy I've never heard of who ranted on about how evil the religious right is. The fact that there was a minimal amount of Lewis Black was apparently fine with the highly enthusiastic audience, as long as a steady stream of lame anti-Trump jabs kept coming. BOTTOM LINE: If you're in the mood for an anti-Trump rally, you'll love this show. If you want to see Lewis Black, look up his YouTube videos.
