Its painfully obvious that the other "reviewers" here have never listened to the long-running 'Get Old' podcast. What you are basically saying is "I am angry that I bought tickets to something without finding out what it was!". Accept that you made a mistake, and enjoy it for what it is.... Jason Mewes's way to combat his drug addiction.


this was so bad. also walked out and felt like i'd been really ripped off by these two as they were clearly doing it just for the money. There was no structure, no originality and, worst of all, no wit to any of it. Being really rude is fine if it's also got some cleverness to it but this was less funny than the average lewd conversation you might overhear from a bunch of schoolboys on the bus. They were about 40 minutes late getting on stage, didn't apologize for this then made us sing happy birthday to one of their relatives! They both (especially Kevin) reeked of their own self importance seemingly convinced that any drivel they spouted would automatically be comedy gold. It wasn't. I would have loved it if the audience had gone silent and revealed to them what a sad affair the whole thing was. Unfortunately this was not the case and people laughed along, much to my bewilderment. I'm glad that the other reviewers on this page agree with me and that at least a few people recognize a load of rubbish when they see it.


Also walked out after about an hour or so. Really loved Audience with... Loved his earlier films, this was just self indulgent and lazy. They had nothing to say and no way to say it :-(

Utterly disappointed. What a waste of a Saturday evening and a few hours of my life. Late starting and then utter drivel. No structure (fine if it's funny), no interest, very very few laughs and a huge let down. I can't believe that they need to make money that much that they feel they had to produce this atrocious piece of "comedy" theatre. Seriously bad - so much so we left after 1hr for fear of becoming comatosed with boredom.

It was good, but not great. It was 40 minutes late starting, and after a self-indulgent moment when we all had to sing Happy Birthday to Kevin's mother-in-law, the show kicked off with rambling anecdote about Bedknobs and Broomsticks. Thankfully, it got better after that, but seemed to end abruptly after getting people on stage to make up new sexual positions with Jason Mewes. I felt a bit short-changed, ultimately.
