Hi, We´re a family from Denmark, Europe.
We were in Vegas for a few days at the end of May ´05.
My wife and daughter went to see Barry Manilow, but my son and I bought tickets for The Amazing Jonathan.
It was VERY FUNNY. We laughed for almost 2 hours, because 20 minutes prior to the show, he shows his favourite movieclips on 3 big screens.
OK, we had seen most of the show on Comedy Central, but We´ll probably go back and see it again next time we come to Vegas. This time we´ll bring my wife and daughter.
He´s not a brillant magician, but he´s extremely funny, so who cares?
Hi from Niels.

I have seen AJ twice, and I think the recent negative reviews are because someone in Marketing -- up and is marketing him as a magician. He IS NOT. I think he does 3 lame tricks during the show. The focus is on COMEDY. Sick, twisted comedy, but comedy all the same. His show looks as if he is just making it up as he goes along, but it is actually one of the tightest, most rehearsed, shows I have ever seen. It is very hard to come off night after night as being just 'making it up'. Psychic Tanya is hysterical, if you understand the way the show works, with her as a foil to Jonathan.

This show is not for the easily offended, or those wanting Lance Burton. At 1/2 price (often available at the 1/2 price ticket outlet) this show is a steal, if you are kind of sick and twisted, because Jonathan certainly is.

Don't bring kids, ok?

Had a great time, laughed so much, and left totally satisfied with the show. I would definately recommend, but be forewarned, it is edgy and you have to be openminded!

We were out in Las Vegas to get married and took in Jonathan's show based on a performance on the Comedy Channel. The rundown hotel (the Sahara) should have given us our first clue about what was to come. Previous famous entertainers lining the walls, including Johnny Carson and Jack Benny who have performed there, must be spinning in their graves. This Jonathan character would be funny as your neighbor, but you wouldn't want to pay money to hear this routine. The continuous barrage of the "F" word wasn't nearly as bad as his blond (read "stupid") wife - he stabbed her in the head, shot her repeatedly, insulted her, it was the most offensive misogynistic crap i have ever seen. There wasn't a single moment that this blond was funny or even interesting. This was just really white trash at it's worst.

Saw the show on October 4th. The show was hilarious. The preshow was pretty funny too. The venue leaves a lot to be desired. I was close to the stage so visibility and audio was OK. I paid extra for VIP seating. I don't know what that means at the Riviera. We were hearded in like cattle. I had to wait standing in line for 45 minutes. No drink service, lost my buzz. The auditorium was not that great. The seating was just chairs placed in a row in front of the stage, no tables. The staff was not helpful at all and seemed indifferent to the plight of the patrons. But don't let that stop you. The show is great. Jonathan is a maniac.

The Amazing Jonathan is one of the best gore-comedians today. The show is definitely worth seeing if you want a good laugh. Warning to all the people that are easily offended, that do not like violence, and obscene or offensive jokes do not go. If you are into this type of comedy I highly recommend this show. The Amazing Jonathan interacts with the audience and if you’re the unlucky one that he picks for assistance you’re in for a real treat. The Amazing Jonathan (AJ) has some new jokes and tricks but mainly does his old routine that most of you may remember from Comedy Central. It is still funny and I have seen his show every time I go to Vegas.

We loved his show. I had seen him on Comedy Central at least 2 times, but my girlfriend had never heard of him. He had both of us busting a gut the entire time, even though I had seen a lot of the material before.

The Congo room in the Sahara is relatively small when you compare it to the other larger showrooms, so there really is no bad seat in the house. In other words, get the 'cheap seats' because you're going to get just as good a view as the VIP sections.

Before the show, get a Long Island Iced Tea at the bar outside the room, $9.00, you get to keep a nice cup, and it's pretty much straight booze.

I saw AJ back in Feb. 2005 at the Riveria. I loved his show. So much so that I went to see AJ on my 50th birthday October 3rd 2005. This time my wife and two sons went with me. We sat right next to the stage.

I can say honestly that my entire group enjoyed his show. My sons were in tears, the jokes and humor are for the quick witted. Tanya brings a nice twist, and humourous distraction to the show.

For those who's reviews are Anti "AJ" I just want to say "Lighten Up"! Its a comedy show. Magic is not his main gig, its comedy. In the Comedy area, he's one of the best shows you'll ever see. Keep up the great work AJ, your the man!!!

I'll see his show next time I come to Vegas. It was worth my time, and is worth yours too.

I attended the show on 3/16/05 while I was out in Vegas and it was the highlight of my trip. It was so hysterical, I had tears running down my cheeks throughout the performance. The show runs almost 2 hours (1/2 hour by a magician/comedian and 1 1/2 hours by the Amazing Jonathan. Don't go if you get offended easily. If you don't, then you will love it. Can't wait to see him again. Spend the extra money to get the VIP seats. It's SO worth it (maybe $10 to $20 more).
