We have watched all of Jim's comedy shows and they have always been belly laughing funny, unfortunately this one was not so much. I think the content was mostly the issue. Sorry Jim! It was also a very short performance. The warm up comedian was very funny.

We have watched many Jim Gaffigan shows on Netflix and laughed, but the show we saw recently in our hometown barely brought any laughs. Jim seem tired and not too excited to be there. and the whole show lasted an hour and a half with the warm-up. Tickets were expensive for the entertainment value. Won’t go see him again.

I really enjoy Jim and all of his work. I’ve watched probably over 20 hours of his comedy and it was exciting to see him try out all new material for us. What concerned me was the sloppiness that he displayed on stage. I’ve been known to put back a couple beers but he really seemed like he was drunk and that it affected his performance. To be honest he seems like such a nice guy and my disappointment in the performance is overshadowed by my concern for him personally. I hope he’s doing OK. In summary, my wife and daughter and I were rather disappointed in the overall performance because rod this

Jim seemed disinterested his portion of the show was less than an hour. The venue may have been to large for a Sunday night show. The warm up person was funny, but seemed to hand us if to Jim as to say good luck. It stinks we did not get what was paid for, everyone has an off night, in reading the other reviews from this tour seems like more of the same.

My husband and I LOVE Jim Gaffigan’s comedy. This show was a disappointment indeed. He was on stage about 45 minutes top. He looked tired and not very happy to be there. Very abrupt ending and just walked off stage. We thought it was a joke until the lights came on and everyone started leaving. Don’t waste your money and time.

Big disappointment; not worth the $$ for tickets. The Pandemic is not appropriate to joke about when the nation is still in the throes of coping with how to survive it. No research was done to identify a pulse for the host city. Missed opportunities for identifying with the audience. It was a shockingly bad show and I don’t recommend spending money on tickets.

2.0 star rating Tracy D from Boise, Idaho


The opening act was one short skit - somewhat funny. For the price of the tickets, there should have been two or three opening acts if Jim was only going to be up for one hour. The entire show lasted just short of 90 minutes. Way too short for tickets of almost $100 each. Our dinner beforehand lasted longer. I expected Jim to come out for an encore. Very disappointed and would not pay to see him again.
