    I just found where the Amazing Johnathan has a show going on at Bally's. Seems like it started up at the beginning of September.

    I'm a fan of him from his Comedy Central special a few years ago. But not familiar at all with his live shows. The special was pretty clean, but possibly censored some for TV. Anyone seen it recently?

    My wife and I want to go, and I'd like to take my in-laws with us. They're not fans of lots of bad language. Some swearing isn't going to bother them, but if it's every other word, they won't enjoy themselves. Also, I'm hoping there's no nudity.

    Also, any info on pricing or discounts? Bally's website has it listed at $60 for general admission. A couple of 2 for 1 would be nice.

    I saw him, MANY times years ago ( once as an his assistant!). The shows i saw of him were of the same variety with his assistant were a bit more risque than on C.C. and IMHO a TOTAL pisser -- but I have a warped and wicked sense of humor. I also heard he was ill for awhile some time ago. Glad he is back on the strip and would not hesitate seeing him. ENJOY!

    I've seen his Show a couple times over the years and as I remember he used
    little to no swearing. It's the mood/style of his Show that would get censored
    on television...he has a real 'dark' sense of humor.......LOTS OF FUN THOUGH!
    And no, there's no nudity. Johnathan wouldn't look right with his cloths off...
    psychic Tonya, his assistant, on the other hand...........but again, no. No nudity.
    Only staples in the head, fingers cut off, a bit of blood and gore...you know,
    the usual Amazing Johnathan stuff.

    Excellent! Thanks Greg. I think the in-laws would appreciate the gruesome humor. His CC special had the nail through the tongue trick, if I remember correctly. So if the rest of the show is in-line with that, I think it will be well received.

    I had read that Johnathan might go to Bally's. If I read this right, is it already up and running? Headed out in Oct. and have always wanted to see his show.
