He's still smart, witty and can still go on a rant like nobody else can...but doesn't. Or not enough. Maybe being in a foreign country made him awkward about doing political rants. He spoke a lot about politics, but kept explaining the context before getting to the point. A few high moments here and there, but overall... just nice. You know? I was expecting anger, rants, acidic social commentary. And I got a nice old guy telling jokes and occasionally raising his voice to drop an F... bomb. Wasn't bad, I enjoyed it, but it was just nice.

I guess this is what you get when you are the last city on a tour ... a tired man doing a tired routine ... and slipping into a tired, defensive explanation why he thinks pot should be legalized (for revenue generation.) He's brilliant ... possesses unbelievably funny and poignant insights into human nature and our own foolishness ... but like most men in their 60's (I'm a young 68) he needed a nap.

I was a bit disappointed in his Philly show. He didn't seem to have his usual passion or anger which is his main draw,

This show was a rip off. $145.00 for a tired , no new material, unenthusiastic 1 hour and 10 minutes of rehashed DRIBBLE. The majority of the the crowd looked like they did not make it to shower Or to the closet for fresh clothes preferring their sweats and dirty jeans. The loud stoners with non stop forced laughs were not delt with by the Saban staff. LEWIS CLEARLY WANTED TO GET THIS OVER WITH AND GO HOME.

We paid almost $200 for a pair of tickets so far away from the stage, that it rendered him almost invisible, If I had been closer, I would have booed him. His lack of energy and material was alarming. His material was limited and sprinkled w too many F bombs. Perhaps if he graduated to five letter adjectives instead of a diet of four lettered words his content would improve. I have listened to him spin hilarious stories in the past, but none were available last night./
