saw the big yin last night at armadillo. I am a huge fan, love the man and spent hours vying for these tickets. However, I didn't spend the night howling with laughter. Yes we laughed but then sat quietly waiting for the next one. Sorry BC but you need more up to date material, we've been hearing about your prostate for quite a while now, balaclavas are really going back and some of the rest I heard when I seen you years ago. Watch some Live at the Apollo and listen to what's going on re material You have always been the master to these guys yet last night you were just ok. Where was the controversy, the in your face take on what's happening today? Won't spend hours for a ticket again. Sorry.
