Tim Allen is either getting the wrong direction from his agent or manager or he is just getting lazy! The extreme language was not needed and seemed mostly out of place. We were expecting a performer at his level would not need to go down that path. Great material, well written and performed was what we were expecting but really didn't receive. He took the easy way out. Sad.

Got a good glimpse of the real Tim Allen, for which I will forever never think of him the same way. He's not Tim the Tool Man or Santa or Buzz Light Year. Not warm and fuzzy, at all. Just seems bitter and angry. F this, F that, every other word. Couldn't believe it. As if that is what is supposed to get the laughs. He had his moments, and has valid points about Twitter (lots of griping), but honestly, enjoyed his starting act much more. For $100 a ticket, expected a longer and better show. Wished I would have read reviews before buying tickets. NOT family friendly. Save your money folks.

Tim Allen is a great actor love all of his shows and movies. But felt acting is definitely his talent not stand up, He was funny but only at certain moments, I think he would’ve been much funnier without using the Fu$& word the pus$& and GD throughout the entire show didn’t think it was necessary, at least to the extent he used it. I felt he was acting almost as if he was back to the early days of his stand up comedy when throwing F bombs seem to make things funnier. Just didn’t seem as funny now that he’s an almost 70-year-old actor who does mainly family shows . There was a note on the tickets it was 18 years and older comedy I just have to say I was disappointed in the stand up but will continue to watch his movies.

It appeared he was trying to entertain middle schoolers. Very vulgar and needless profanity. I would have rather had my fond memories of Tool Man and his role in Last Man Standing. We didn't need to know his seedy past drug dealing and doing time as though he was proud of it. Telling audience that he hates kids truly tarnished his image. Wanting to shoot Santa also not funny. I will no longer be watching re runs of his shows knowing now what kind if person he really is. The warm up comedian was enjoyable. It's time to clean it up or stay off stage. Most of audience at Spotlight were over 60. Every few words had to havea f--- thrown in for no reason except to be vulgar.

Too vulgar. The content had potential but Tim needs to listen to his grandma and cut the swearing. It could have been so much better! Not impressed!

2.0 star rating Tom Sapelak. from Detroit, Michigan


I expected his stand up to be different from his TV and acting, however, was not expecting to be so disappointed. He has such a natural quick wit about himself but did not see any of that during his routine. Instead of jokes he told stories that were not so comical. He should stick to jokes. The show was not worth $360.00 for two tickets. Unfortunately, his act was disappointing.
