My husband and I were very unimpressed. The show started late. The opener was funnier than Jim. The show was short. The jokes were tasteless and not funny. Not family friendly either. We left very disappointed.

Not his best work! Went to his show at the Paramount Theater in Seattle Dec 17th 2021. He looked and sounded tired with fake laughs from telling the same line over and over for this shows. The things he talked about was shocking, there were people with kids there. He needs to rest, save your money!

I'm located in Bend, OR and me and my entire family went to see him and we where all hyped to see him. My mom, and dad quote Jim all the time. However, the show started late, (show was supposed to start 7:30PM but started around 7:40-7:45PM. I thought the second opener was super funny, had a nice spark to him and he was pretty energetic, and I thought he was more entertaining than Jim, which I hate to say. Finally when Jim comes on, he didn't seem all there, disinterested, or maybe just tired but overall he didn't seem like he was enjoying himself at all. Felt like he slurred a few of his words around too, so sometimes hard to understand the full joke. I was shocked that it was only about 45mins run time in total for the amount we paid for all 5 of us to see him, and again what other people say is that he just left suddenly, and everyone thought it was a joke - but no, it wasn't, that was the end of the show... So after that, I prob won't be seeing him again live. 1 star for me.

I laughed more at the opening act. Laughed maybe 3 times total for Gaffigan and then it was over quickly. A rip off for what we paid. First half of show was all funeral jokes and not funny. Between that and the stale and endless diarrhea jokes, I would not pay to see him again. Huge disappointment as others have said.

We had row J so close to the stage. The show started late which was very annoying because we rushed to get there. The opening act came on around 7:20 pm (also funny) and while he was performing, so many people in front of us were loudly being seated (SHAME ON THE FOX AND ON THE PEOPLE ARRIVING LATE). We couldn't see or hear the comedian. When Jim when on, many of these same people kept getting up, leaving and coming back. Very, very disturbing! Jim was only on for maybe 45 min, but was really great! My rating is for the Fox Theater!

Good opening act. After opening with dated covid jokes that we all told to our friends 3 years ago he spent 10 minutes mocking God, 15 minutes saying Diarrhea over and over, Had a bit about bells for some reason and went back to diarrhea and it was over. Pretty sure i came up with a better 40 minute set while I was suffering through it and I wouldn't have charged $75 a ticket. Wanted to laugh and couldn't force myself to.

Though I don’t see myself as someone who’s a fan of celebrities, Jim Gaffigan used to be the exception to that. Repeated his specials countless times and was so excited to finally see him live. Was so dissapointed by the topics, jokes and length of the show. Topics which he covered in previous specials or which completely didn’t fit the type of humour I’m used from him. Jokes which had awkward pauses because there hardly was a laugh and he dissapeared after 45 minutes. They say you should never ‘meet your heroes’, this experience was enough for me to never enjoy his content the same way again.
