JIM JEFFERIES RIPPED IT UP
Great Show! The opening comedian, Jj was hilarious, much different type of comedy and delivery than jim, but the contrast was the perfect way to get the crowd going. As a fan of Jim's specials it was no suprise that his new material was brash and raunchy, with underlying classic jefferies witticism, and racism. After putting on an hour plus show Jim announced that he would take pictures with anyone who wanted to wait in line for them, I have seen dozens of live shows from concerts to plays and numerous other comedians, and no one ever does that. I am an even bigger fan now, say what you want about his material but the guy is a class f@#king act and shows his fans appreciation for coming out and supporting his work which is increasingly rare, but greatly appreciated. Seems like kinda guy you could go grab a beer with after the show Great time, great venue.

All I can say is that Jim puts on a show. His routine is the classic raunchyridiculous show everyone loves, and he especially shined out here in Columbus. Half way through he went on an improve tangent by insulting the crowd and joking and drinking. His set was perfect and he even stayed to take pictures after. This guy is a must see for any comedy lover.

RAUNCHY HUMOR MADE INTELLIGENT
Most people would characterize Jim Jeffries as a foul-mouthed Aussie who hates everyone from women to... Well, you name it! He's got a joke or two that will take the group (as a whole) down a peg or two! I'd only seen some excerpts of his standup on television and his show. I wasn't sure what we were going to find. He was surprising in his ability to cleverly weave a story, get people to laugh at themselves, and bring the crowd together for his "Ya see Timmy?" moments of genius and relevance. I would see him perform again without question. I can't wait to see him Direct! ;)

Loved the show!!! This is the 2nd time I have seen him and he never disappoints! Well done!! I can’t wait to see him again!

EVEN BETTER THAN HIS NETFLIX SPECIALS
It was a great 2 hour show, with lots of different material. I laughed the entire time, and he really put on a good show. I still can't believe that I can see a comedian from a different continent for just $40, and I can't even afford to see our own home-grown Russell Peters for a decent price. They are both equally as good, and yet one is so much more affordable!

My first live comedian show and worth every VIP dollar. Clever and relevant adult only appropriate comedy that kept the audience in stitches from beginning to end ... edgy topics seamed together with ingenious story telling skill and spot on timing. I was slightly intimidated afterwards lining up for a selfie, but Jim quickly broke the ice with a joke confirming that he is truly a down to earth regular guy. N.B: Be ready to be quickly escorted

JEFFRIES’ INTOLERANCE AND OTHER HILARIOUS MOMENTS
Jim Jeffries weaves a clever tale for 90 hilarious minutes with all sorts of tangents and side journeys. And it all starts with lactose intolerance. It’s not for the faint of heart but I love his stand up.

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 ..
from Phoenix, Arizona
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 !

MY USED TO BE FAVORITE
I have loved Jim Jeffries and all of his specials since I first saw him. However, seeing him live was a disappointment. His new material does not have the intellectual humor of the past. Sad to see. Can’t even watch his specials on Netflix anymore because of this disappointment. My seats were decent, middle section, mid way back. The bartenders do mix a strong drink though.

OLD TIRED MATERIAL
I am a big fan but this was an insult old material and not even his good stuff Seemed to be the consensus as many people left and no standing ovation at the end and very weak short applause. NO good comic (and Jeffries is good) would feist off old material on his audience. He was an embarrassment

NEGATIVE, ANGRY AUSSIE
Do I have to give a star? In the words of the man himself it was just an evening of “sh!t cu_t” o ver and over. I found it boring angry and most of all stupid.
from Las Vegas, Nevada
Comedy with filth pouring out every line. No children please' This spoiled the evening. Good seats, but then i had to listen his program.
