FUN NIGHT WITH A CHARMING HOST
The show isn't your typical stand up show. It is more of a throwback humorist type show. Offerman is super charming and funny in unusual way. It is amazing how he can find a balance about talking sex and racy things but being such a wordsmith that it sounds elegant. Definitely a fun and unique night. The crowd loved it.

This show was the best comedy show I have ever seen. Nick Offerman was humble and hilarious! My wife surprised me with tickets for my birthday and I was not disappointed. The whole audience was enraptured with laughter and some thought provoking moments. I would totally go see it again. I just have one critique and that is I thought it needed more wood working :)

DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT
Saw Nick in Fort Myers on a long weekend with my daughters. We completely enjoyed the evening. Entertained by his songs and range of topics. We were surprised that it wasn't sold out, but after the show began we realized why. Florida is a tough crowd for someone with a more liberal viewpoint!

IT WAS OK, WOULDN'T GO SEE AGAIN
For a comedy show the laughs were pretty limited and most of those seemed like sympathy laughs. His theme of the show was pretty disjointed, which would be fine except that he tried to pretend like he was pulling it all together under this "Full Bush" idea. He performed many songs, but the music wasn't very interesting or didn't vary much from song to song and the lyrics weren't very witty, though a few funny lines here and there. The highlight of the night actually came when a member of the audience stood up in the crowd near the front of the stage and yelled at Nick: "You're Illuminati scum!" Nick responded back to him, mostly shocked that he is being yelled at, and the guy said a few other words I couldn't understand through the laughing of the crowd. Quite strange, but gave us all some entertainment and something to talk about as we left the theater.

I TRIED TO LIKE IT
........ When you have to tell your crowd about your cell phones obviously you lost your crowd. I mean I get it you're a comedian you're supposed to take jabs at people but continually going back and attacking people that believe in gun rights and religion over and over again. And to say you work hard on this, really what.

PREACHY AND TRITE
I have seen Nick twice before and loved him. I love his dry humor. But recently someone must have convinced Nick that he is a preacher and that his mission is the save the world. What that became was a handful of passable jokes sprinkled into a series of extreme caricature monologues of macho, homophobe, gun loving, racist, and sexist white guys. Add to that a homily about how we should all get along, respect each other and let each other make our own choices and you have a evening that was quite honestly boring. The caricatures have been done much more effectively by others long ago. Nothing is new or insightful. The worst part is that people were laughing at the caricatures. It just isn’t funny to do a monologue about how a parent doesn’t accepted their child because they are LGBTQ. It is a sad thing. Nick observes that we are all separated by the way we group ourselves. He observes that life would be better if we didn’t build walls. But he did nothing to tear down those walls, nothing to bring people together. Would not recommend to anyone.

Waited months to see and I tried to like it but it was too much like a lecture. Not funny. I have seen him before and this time was not good
