Was it another sellout?

No, it was not. Redneck humor..a little is almost too much........

With ticket prices over $50 dollars for every seat it is no wonder it wasn't even close to a sell out. It is ridiculous to have big city ticket prices for an area like this. People simply can't afford it.

Big city ticket prices wouldn't have been 50. We saw Ron White in DM and good seats were 100+ and that was almost 5 years ago!

Several thousand fans really! Try more like 1,200 fans max!

I stand by my comments and the attendance speaks for itself. If you have $100 to spend on a ticket to a comic more power to you, but in this area with the economy the way it is $50 is just too much.

People always have to complain about something. Sorry but $50 to see a big name comic is not asking too much. If it were $50 to see some guy on last comic standing then yes that is too much. At least they are trying to bring bigger name acts into town. If they don't, people complain because there is nothing to do in Spencer. If it's not one thing, it's another. I'm not a "Larry the Cable Guy" fan so I didn't go but kuddos for at least trying to get some entertainment into town.

Yes, I'd agree that it is nice to see effort put into bringing bigger names to town so those who can spend on the money on tickets don't have to go elsewhere to do so. I don't really care if someone comes that doesn't interest me, or if tickets are too much, I'm just happy there are more things going on in this town. Options are a good thing. If you can't or won't take those options, then so be it.
