Not all of the comedians are doing all of the shows. Frank isn't scheduled to
do any of these last shows. Lewis Black only did the PNC show and Stephen
Lynch wasn't at the last 2 but will be back for the Camden/Philly show.
Dru did a great job out in the parking lot. Really made the tailgate party kick ass.
( I honestly think Frank bailed out after not getting a great response from his 1st few appearences,
but that's just my thoughts. )
Yea, I was wondering what was going on with Caliendo since they'd promoted him as being at the venue. Personally I didnt miss him since I really didnt think that he fit in with the other comics on the bill. I bet the reactions on the other dates probably made him drop out.
Yeah, but the difference is that Saget still got a good reception. I guess alot
of people still want to hear him. Not everyone has been exposed to "dirty bob"
but everyone has heard Frank's material over and over again.
Saget didn't do alot of new stuff ( there were a few new lines in his act ) and
yet there wasn't a "boo" in the house for him.
And every time I see Vos he opens with the, "Let the meeting come to order" line, yet I laugh like a maniac every time. Caliendo, I don't think I've laughed at since the first time Iheard him back on WNEW. I know I didn't at Jones Beach. And even though I have heard about 60% of Saget's set saturday night before, I was still laughing like a mad man.
I love Saget's stuff but if it were Dom Irera up there he would've gotten booed. You could tell that Saget was losing the crowd at times with the level of restlessness because we've heard this stuff last tour. He's got a great act if you've never seen it before but that was just a lazy move to come with the same shit. Norton's act was different from last year, Bob Kelly's act was different, 99% of Patrice's material was different, a good portion of Otto and George's material was different. Saget stayed just about the same with the exception of My Dog Licked My Balls. For some reason that just didn't sit well.
