    Anyone here see him? How was it? I just got tickets to see him this Saturday. I've wanted to see him forever and I can't wait. I've read about people walking out and how offensive he is and I hope that's the case. Howard related because I'll support anyone "banned" from the shoe. I also might have to procure some medicinal substance to enhance the experience!

    I saw him 3 years ago live. He's hilarious Yes, he's extremely offensive in the live show he makes Michael Richards look pc.

    Very funny. Even the jokes he's done for 30 years are still funny.

    My only complaint was he did too much new material

    When I saw him he was doing Hitler impressions and a large group of people from Kansas that were in town at the show complained. Gilbert doubled down and the group got up and walked out to cheers from the crowd that was left. He did over an hour. Tons of Aflac jokes. He was absolutely filthy; a true comic genius.

    Yes, he was great. I saw him about five years ago. He came out after the show and met anyone and I think he signed stuff, too. It was a great time.

    He did that one and another where he was surprised that during the tsunami people were logging into his Twitter to see what he was saying about the tragedy.

    I think Gilbert watches tape of the atomic bomb blowing up Hiroshima and laughs hysterically

    Yeah I've seen him, earlier this year. Very funny show. It appeared to me that he doesn't do a traditional set. Just sort of tells whatever joke pops into his head. From time to time he'd forget a joke halfway through then abandon it, only to go back to it later when he remembered it. He was awesome.

    I forgot he did prop comedy for the show I saw, too. He basically picked up some drink trays and put them up like Mickey Mouse ears. I would watch him do anything, though :jj:

    I saw him about 30 years ago and from what I've heard he's still doing some of the same stuff.

    Gilbert is not normal.

    He's the best.

    He's playing here at the M casino which is pretty local and frequented by many seniors. I am hoping for some comp giveaways of people who have no idea what he's about and then watching the ensuing walkout that will occur. I assume it only encourages Gilbert. Can't wait!
