Always been a fan of Leslie. To see her in person was such a treat! She brought the high energy I have come to expect from her, had me laughing all night!

2.0 star rating Julie S from Boston, Massachusetts


I expected loud. I expected Leslie to push the envelope, to use colorful language and be edgy. But I did not expect her to be nothing short of expletive laden and vulgar. Less is more and she couldn't get thru a sentence without repetitive use of expletives. It loses it's impact after a while and honestly found her stories to be just too long. Point belabored. Yet, she also had a message - an important message - that being you can't change your past, you can't predict your future, so live your current life happily. I wanted to like this show way more than I did.

2.0 star rating Jim from Thousand Oaks, CA


Absolutely in agreement with previous 3 Washington reviewers. Really wanted to just love her humor, as I'd seen on TV, but it went way off the rails, exactly as described in those 3 reviews. Not just being risqué, but completely overdone, her exaggerated pantomining would go on waay beyond the initial "funny;" then it became laborious. Gratuitous filthy language lost its effect after about 15 minutes. However, the many attendees seemed to just love it, laughs throughout, and the audience seemed to be pretty affluent, in a town that's fairly wealthy. I don't get it. I just felt almost "dirty" after leaving; I couldn't get out of the theater fast enough.

I loved Leslie on SNL and while I expected her show to be different from her characters on the show, I also expected it to be funny, but that, unfortunately, was not the case. She wore leggings and a t-shirt, which may have been fine had she not continuously kept pulling up her pants throughout the show and commenting how they kept falling down. She mentioned how her life has changed and now she's now making money - maybe she can afford to buy a better pair of leggings! It wasn't hot in the theater, yet she seemed to be sweating profusely throughout the show. Her language was pretty vulgar thoughout and I just didn't find the show funny. The concept of her past, present and future self could have lended itself to a great show with a great story, but it did not. Very disappointed.

1.0 star rating Steve C from Chapel Hill, North Carolina


This show was atrocious. Leslie seemed to be trying to perform like Chris Rock. The vulgarity was overdone. A few times going into preaching mode. Repeatedly slapping and scrapping the microphone, while using it as a phallic symbol. Was she was trying to damage the theatre's sound system? No one was laughing when she acted out how gross cunnilingus was to her. I was totally turned off when she proclaimed how affluent she became by being herself. She did do some Jane Fonda aerobics, which made her break out into a sweat. I would take a pass on her show.
