GREAT SHOW BUT VENUE UNDER-STAFFED

Davis Spade did not disappoint. His material was fresh but familiar. Hilarious and a bit edgy without going too far over the edge. I was a little surprised he didn’t touch on the historic court verdict delivered in Kenosha earlier in the day. His opening acts were great. Both were new to me and I’m a new fan. There was a big backup at the will-call window with only one worker, and many tickets were invalid (refunded due to postponement, then resold to unsuspecting victims). The line at the bar was worse. Only one worker and a long long line - unable to serve everyone before the show started. The venue itself is fabulous. Spade wasn’t happy with the spotlights or sound, but that might be part of his “shtick”. My seat was beyond great. Overall a very funny and satisfying show. David Spade in top form in a fabulous venue, lacking only an additional clerk and a bartender.

"YOU CAN TELL A MAN...

... by the relationship he has with his mother" (as my own mom used to say). It's endearing that you can tell he truly respects and adores his mother. We had a fun evening with Spade at The Cove. He was brilliant-- seemed so comfortable and at ease with himself. He certainly did not disappoint! Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves quite immensely. He's a sweetheart. His delivery is what cracks me up, and his facial expressions. I like that he's not too raunchy, and has enough good material that he doesn't feel the need to have to pick the lowest hanging fruit, like so many other comics usually resort to. His slightly self deprecating and semi-clean humor is what's won the hearts of so many... young and older, alike. Our only complaint was the line at the bar(s). That has to change. Thanks, Davey, for a great evening. Come see us in Tulsa again and again!

DAVID SPADE IS HILARIOUS!

The show in Chicago was amazing. David has the best comic timing and he is an awesome storyteller. I could not stop laughing. There was a blizzard and he still made it in and gave the very best performance. I can’t wait to see him perform again in the future. 10 Stars!!! ⭐️

GREAT SHOW

The 2 preceding comedians were excellent even though the show didn’t get started until close to 7:30 and was finished by 8:50. Spade’s show consisted mainly of his Nexflix show and gave no encore!! We would have loved to have heard some of his older stuff too!

NOT THAT FUNNY

The 2 comedians came before Spade were funnier, spade just talked about his anecdotes what he did after a while it was not interesting, people were leaving, i was sleepy and not what I sxpected

COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER MAY 22, BUT GOING AGAIN THIS WEEK!

Long time devoted fan, since 1996. Been to over 20 of his live appearances. Attended show in Royal Oak May 22. My husband & I were disappointed. My sister in law liked the show though. The openers were funny. Venue was great. However, I can do David's entire routine nearly verbatim now without trying. He forgot some of his jokes, was dressed in sweat pants on stage, and didn't seem like had had much sleep. I think they rush him around to venues too quickly sometimes. I am going back this week, out of sheer loyalty as a fan, and hope he does a better show in Jan 24'. He used to really be a riot! Aside from this, he is really one sweet guy, and yes. His Mom is amazing.

BIG DISAPPOINTMENT

I absolutely love David Spade! Paid $300 for 2 tickets and waited 4 months. The opening acts were great! And then David came out looking all disheveled. Ratty sweatshirt. Trucker hat. Very unkempt. Pretty much everything he said, I'd heard before on Netflix or elsewhere. Funny, but why did I pay $300 to hear the same stuff? We left early. Sorry David, I still love you!

DISAPPOINTED

Was either hungover or string out. He was very obviously messed up. Loved him before this and had high hopes. Save you money don’t go

BORING

OMG, get some new material. Covid is over. Trucker hat and greasy hair and nasty sweatpants. Not funny. Almost fell asleep. What a waste of $300.

BORING!

Davis Spade needs to freshen up his material! Falling asleep in my chair waiting for something to make me laugh. Very disappointing. Thank God his whole routine was over in 35 minutes. Waste of time and money!

OH NO DAVID..NOT GOOD

Luv Luv Luv David Spade..Rules of Engagement was fab, SNL,Movies, all GR8..The highlight of his show was sadly "The End" From the material to the delivery, it was painfully unfunny..I really felt like he didn't want to be there, & after a very short periid of time, neither did the audience..Please get a new sitcom or new writers, cuz stand up is NOT your forte..🤑

DISAPPOINTING

I am a huge fan of David Spade from his many appearances on the Stern show, SNL, his late night show, podcast, movies…. Tonight his material was not current or relevant to 2023. Not sure if Dana Carveys recent tragedy is related to the disappointing performance on this tour.
