5.0 star rating Sammy from Providence, Rhode Island


Spectacular show! His opening act and friend John Bowman is also hilarious!

4.0 star rating Trampgaucho from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


I loved having the opportunity to laugh live with hundreds of fans at Lewis Black's jokes in Pittsburgh last night. I'll admit that he wasn't as high energy as 10 years ago when he was on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, but Stewart's retired, and I got to see Black before he retired, too. It was an item off of my bucket list that left me satisfied.

4.0 star rating Reg from Winnipeg, Manitoba


One of the best comedians. Did not fail to deliver.

3.0 star rating Rich H 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.

3.0 star rating Vickie 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,

3.0 star rating Pat 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.

2.0 star rating Jake / Valencia 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.

1.0 star rating Leslie Aday 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.

1.0 star rating Anonymous from New Brunswick, New Jersey


We paid almost $200 for a pair of tickets so far away from the stage, that it rendered him almost invisible, If I had been closer, I would have booed him. His lack of energy and material was alarming. His material was limited and sprinkled w too many F bombs. Perhaps if he graduated to five letter adjectives instead of a diet of four lettered words his content would improve. I have listened to him spin hilarious stories in the past, but none were available last night./
