The place was nice but headliner was awful. It was our valentine's day date night and it was very disappointing.

TIM MEADOWS LIVE:
Funnyman Tim Meadows tickled audiences for over 10 years on Saturday Night Live with spot-on impressions of OJ Simpson, Michael Jackson, and Tiger Woods in addition to his trademark Ladies Man character. With the same acerbic wit and dead pan delivery that his fans already know and love, he continues to delight audiences at standup comedy venues around the nation. Whether he’s talking about not celebrating Kwanzaa or making fun of his Detroit upbringing, Meadows never fails to catch ticket buyers off guard and get them laughing with gut-busting punchlines that work brilliantly with his even-keeled, straight-faced style. Audiences can expect an evening of humorous anecdotes and spontaneous insights wherever Tim Meadows takes his unique and side-splitting brand of standup comedy on tour.
Born and raised in and around Detroit, MI, Tim Meadows got his start in comedy performing with various local improv groups before relocating to Chicago in 1985. With companies like Second City and ImprovOlympic, the aspiring comedian worked with several other soon-to-be famous sketch comedy stars like Mike Myers, Chris Farley, and Bob Odenkirk. Saturday Night Live called on Meadows in 1991, leading to a decade-long tenure on the most prestigious sketch comedy show on television. In addition to impersonations including Sammy Davis, Jr., Ike Turner, and OJ Simpson, he developed his trademark Ladies Man character, which became a weekly fixture of the show. Meadows starred in a film adaptation of The Ladies Man in 2000, which has gone on to become a cult classic. He has also appeared in movies such as Mean Girls (2004), Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story (2007), Grown Ups (2010), and Trainwreck (2015). An extremely versatile comedic talent, Tim Meadows continues to delight audiences as an actor, writer, improviser, and standup comedian wherever he performs.
He was like three hours late uncalled for he supposed to be professional
Tim Meadows was late due to "weather issues". When he arrived, 2 hours late, he proceeded to make light of the town of the venue and the people from there. He did seam prepared at all. Not a very 'funny' appearance. Laughs were few and far between. Only on stage for 45 minutes and 20 minutes was of his travel issues getting to the event. Would not recommend. Comedian that opened for him was 1000 times more entertaining and was on stage for just over an hour. That is the reason for 2 Stars instead of one.
Opening acts were very funny. Tim was held up with flight and tried to make up for it with a meet and greet which was appreciated.
This show was originally scheduled for April, it was canceled. Rescheduled for August. Surprise surprise he was late. First two comics were funny. The second guy from W. Chester drove his crowd work bit "How long have you guys been married" into the ground. Mr. ladies man was late (again) and they had to have an intermission. So we get ready for the laughter and guess what, he wasn't all that funny. Guess it was a night out but average at best.
We stood in line for over 20 mins just to get in the venue; 1 door and 1 older security guard checking purses and IDs well past the supposed 7:30 start time. When we finally got into the venue, we were seated at 2 forward-facing chairs (no table except behind us). There were 4 comedians before Tim Meadows. The first 2 - women - were not funny; vulgar, focusing on their genitals, one speaking about her 4-year old 'bitch' daughter who she left in the car out back. The other telling how yoga has made her limber enough to 'self-satisfy' herself. The 2 guys following were great. Should have done the entire show! Tim Meadows did maybe 15-20 minutes. No routine. Just railed against our town: "What the f--- kind of place is this? 2hours from LAX? I should have flown over in a plane and said F--- you! Crummy-assed place...." Then he talked about being divorced and if he didn't have to pay alimony, he would not have to work in crummy casinos and crummy cities like ours....." Then finished up with his impression of Judge Judy's bailiff by sleeping on stage. Just horrible. Not funny. Not enjoyable. A waste of time (total just about an hour for the entire show) and money. Also could not get a second drink for the "2-drink minimum" and had to chase the waitress down for our credit card and to ensure we were not charged for q second phantom drink.
Why would someone show up for work and not do the work. That’s what Tim did. The 4th act was descent at least I laughed once.
My husband and I have been going to comedy shows for over 20 years on a regular basis. This, I must say was the worst. I was prepared to bust my seams laughing and there was nothing to laugh about. The sad thing for an established comedian like that, is that he had nothing to say. The show started 15 minutes late. All shows that I’ve been to, started within 5-6 minutes of schedule. He had 4 opening act. He was on for about 25 minutes. You can tell he didn’t want to be there.
The line up was ok until Daniel took the stage. He was Funny! Then Tim came on and he was Funny also!
Starter and middle act were mediocre. Tim started funny and then got boring when he basically started telling celebrity stories. Decent set but you could tell he was done with the weekend. At least he finished with ladies man for a crowd pleaser. Meadows has seen better days...
