4.0 star rating Robin H. from Columbus, Ohio


Overall a cute and funny show. It seems his jokes and songs are reflective of his place in life right now, a 51 year old married man with children. Not what I expected but also not a bad thing. I was however a little put off by the excessive amount of crude sexual things he said. At least he always referenced being faithful to his wife, I guess? I don't think a guy as lovable as Adam needs to go that route. I still love him though and I would go again if I had the chance.

Adam Sandler was amazing! Loved the "surprised guests" and Chris Farley tribute. This is not a show for young children!!

The Zohan made us all silky smooth with the Farley tribute, love Adam Sandler

3.0 star rating Fawn from Tampa, Florida


Adam did a great job with the Chris Farley tribute and Rob Schneider was an outstanding singer. But I think Adam Sandler seems like a nice person but he needs to totally get rid of the crude sex humor because it is not good for him and he should just leave that behind in his jokes. It would have been a great show had he not put so many crude jokes in it. But I had fun going to the concert and enjoyed it but was really put off by the terrible crude jokes involving sexual humor. I think Adam Sandler is better than that and should leave those kind of jokes for other people who aren't as good of community comedians instead

Kevin James was funny 4.5 / 5. He had smart humor, not stupid crude humor. Adam is an excellent singer. Just signs about stupid crude and bad sexual stuff. If you paid more than $100 for a front ride seat, got ripped.

3.0 star rating Paul from Baltimore, MD


Jokes we based off his old age and misery that comes with getting old. He talked about in detail having sex with a balloon. And descriptively described how a pedofile eats ice cream while talking to his children. All his new songs were not catch nor funny. He just isn’t the sand man we all grew up to love. He’s past his prime and it shows greatly. I wouldn’t overpay like this to see him again

2.0 star rating Al from Goshen, NY


The show start 25 minutes late. I thought the opening act was the better of the three. Some of Adam's jokes were a little crude and tasteless. Around half way through the show, a disappointed patron was yelling "you're supposed to be a comedian" as he was leaving the arena. I noticed not too long after that, people were packing their blankets & chairs. When Adam asked the crowd to join in, it sounded like a dismal audience responded. His material needs improvement. The one part I did like was the Chris Farlie tribute towards the end of the show. The show was not worth being out late on a Sunday night.
