Opening act Lowell Sanders was hysterical. Tim had his moments but, it felt like he was just trying to get it done so he could split. The worst part was Bass Concert Hall. if you're not right up front, it's hard to see the star or hear them. They should have screens up so we can actually see the act rather than a blurry person down below. If they're not going to accommodate us, then dont have shows for our age group. I could hear better in the bathroom. The sound people sit with headphones on. They should, I don't know, TAKE THEM OFF SO, THEY CAN ACTUALLY HEAR WHAT WE HEAR. For the money spent, UT can do better, so can Tim Allen. Lowell Sanders should have his own show. 9/21/18. I keep telling myself, if i cant get front row, we won't be going to Bass Concert Hall anymore. This time I mean it. Done.

I love his humor, his movies, TV shows. Didn't appreciate the vulgarity and sexual references. Not such a fan any longer, some is funny, too much is just bad taste. Not for children, your mother, grandmother. Not for anyone who appreciates the TV Tim Allen

3.0 star rating Jan Fallon from Denver, Colorado


We were excited to see Tim Allen as fans of his network shows and movies. He is so witty and such a great writer. This standup was different, lots of vulgarity bringing his usual brilliant humor down. Still a fan, and had some good laughs - but no more standup. The venue was disorganized. Lots of issues with seats in our area. 20 minutes in and still going on. Everyone was irritated til whatever the issue was finally resolved.

I was so excited to see Tim Allen. Paid $200 for 2 tickets. The opening act is the reason I gave 2 stars. He was excellent. Tim’s humor was juvenile and actually boring. I expected so much more. Opening act should have his own show. I could have listened to him for a hour and still would have wanted more. Wish I could say that about Tim.

I've always liked Tim Allen, but his standup on 9/22 in Sugar Land was just... bad. The show started nearly 30 minutes late. His opening act went for about 15 minutes, and he was pretty funny. Tim came out after a 10 minute video of montage of Home Improvement, Last Man Standing, Santa Clause and other works, and proceeded into an angry string of rants and stories drenched with "god damns" and "fucks." I've got no problem with profanity if it adds to the humor, but Tim's profanity did more harm than good. His stories were unoriginal, timing was bad, he was talking really fast and slurring his words. At one point, he yawned. He said good night about 45 minutes into it, and we thought he was kidding. I guess he told his bus driver to leave the motor running. He couldn't wait to get his rich ass out of there. Oh well... I guess I was silly to think he was anything like the roles he's famous for, or to expect him to know that's what his fans like about him.

Disappointed...won’t be spending my money to see him again. Vulgarity filled show...way too much cussing. I guess today’s comedians think they have to go this route to entertain and so many people willing to pay for it. I’ll be searching YouTube to review a comedy act before buying a ticket.

Old material. Jokes appeared to be pulled from subconscious memory and haphazardly told. Awkward moments with silent audience. No attempt to connect with the city.
