GREAT FIRST HALF,... SECOND...GOOD

Very impressed with his first half where he didn’t limit himself to make a few “poutine” jokes to make himself relatable to his local audience, but a complete array of well researched jokes around the canadian culture from coast to coast. Hilarious! He did seem “out of it” at the very end when he finished with a sightly different “hot poket” routine before rushing off stage.

ORIGINAL MATERIAL

This was the most original, best hour I have seen Jim Gaffigan put together in a long time. He had a packed hour and ten minute set. He didn’t waste time with the high pitched voice of the audience. Just jokes and tags. His opening act Ted Alexander only did 20 minutes, but it was a very good set.

OPENING ACT USED 'F' WORD

Jim Gaffigan was great although some of his topics are not family friendly such as details about viagra etc. Disappointed that his opening act used the 'F' word. People bring their KIDS to see Gaffigan and expect the opener to also be clean. His joke could have been just as good using a word such as 'freaking'. Need to change this please. Also if Jim would stick to his numerous clean topics we parents (and longtime fans!) will appreciate it. His fan base will only grow with all clean topics!

DISAPPOINTING

I’m a big Jim Gaffigan fan. Unfortunately, the show was very brief and somewhat stale, especially for the $100 price tag with all the fees and his wife’s book. Which he hardly mentioned. Since he has ties with Milwaukee, it would’ve been nice to have a little more personal touch. Nothing exceptional. The whole show was an hour and a half with the opener.

NOT SO FAMILY-FRIENDLY

Jim has always prided himself on clean comedy. He did say something about the P word which was not necessary. Also if he’s clean, the his warm up should be also he was pretty vulgar about Viagra and it’s a fax. I saw many families with their young teenagers in tow and don’t think this warm up comic was appropriate.Also Jim looked very tired worn out and like to get up too late the night before. I do love him and he is funny but was not thrilled with this concert

DISAPPOINTED

My husband and I have watched all of Jim Gaffigan's specials and found them hilarious. We saw the second show of back to back performances and were fairly disappointed. Jim seemed tired and unenthusiastic. At times he almost seemed to slur slightly. Perhaps we caught him on an off night, but I honestly expected a more polished presentation.

NOT HIS BEST.

Would not pay to see again. Hour show and left abruptly. Still a fan!!!
