IT ALL STARTS WITH LACTOSE
Jim Jefferies was as great as we expected. There was never a moment when I thought he was running out of steam. He weaves a 90-minute tale that begins (and ends) with intolerance while taking us on a number of seemingly random side journeys that in fact, make the destination all the more powerful. Truly, he appeals to thinking people, despite the cringe-worthy details of some of his exploits. The irony is never lost on his audience. We loved the show and would see him again without question.

EVERYTHING I HOPED IT WOULD BE.
Jim came out and does what he does best - rips apart pop culture, himself, you, your mum, people you know, habits you have, things you do, women, men and you laugh because you can relate to what he is saying. He ties the audience together always finding a common ground in humour, between complete strangers. It's to the bone, and not for those of a weak disposition. If you didn't know that already what were you doing there? No one gets spared, you're all in it together. Just as good as the Netflix specials and had luckily the opportunity to meet him afterwards. Nice guy. Hope the show gets released someday. Don't believe the negative reviews, they're probably from the offended and the outraged. You know the type .. "Did he just say that?" "Yah - he did." "But you can't say that!" Err, yes you can, he did, and he does..

I had seen Jim's three Netflix specials, so I knew what to expect and was dying to hear his new material. He did not disappoint. I got dehydrated from all the tears flying out of my eyes from laughing so hard. There is simply no group he will not make fun of. And the poor mom in the first row who clapped when he mentioned he had dyslexia - she (and her son) will never forget that night. Saw him on Valentine's Day 2020 at the Mirage in Las Vegas. If you are in to out of the box humor, do not miss him if he comes to your town. We drove over 7 hours each way from Tucson, and the trip was well worth it (though Las Vegas was a one-and-done for me!)

FUNNY FIRST HALF.. RAN OUT OF STEAM IN THE END
loved the first half but he seemed to run of of steam in the second half.. lost me and a few around me with some of his bits, and never really got us back in ..

I agree with other review. The first half was hilarious, raunchy, and hardly any moments of 'move on'. The second half was slow, he couldn't hold the mike close enough to hear him, and his material was weaker. Maybe that was due to his timing or preoccupation with the round stage, the guy filming him, whatever, he just didn't seem to have the same energy. I'll give him 4.5 stars for the first 1hour and 2.5 stars for the next 45 to 50 minutes. He needs a better 'story' to end the show with.

IT WAS FUNNY
First half he was good, second half he was too wasted and lost his timing.

COULDN'T HEAR HIM IN BALCONY
As title implies, Jim spent entire time looking and speaking to audience on main floor. Never once looked up. I had a hard time understanding him. He seemed rushed. Sometimes Incoherent. I have no trouble watching his Comedy Central show. May be acoustics weren't adequite. I won't waste my money on another live concert. Love you Jeffries !
