David Spade And Rob Schneider Show Review At Parx Casino
The air was buzzing at the Xcite Center at Parx Casino on the night of October 16. David Spade and Rob Schneider were set to perform a sold-out show there.
The Bensalem casino was filled with a lot of bustling people already, but adding a show with two big name comedians/actors only added to it.
After fighting the nightmare that was free parking, heading into the casino was pretty seamless. IDs were checked if you looked young, a bar was available if you wanted refreshments and the event staff were kind and friendly as they scanned your tickets. No pictures or videos were allowed to be taken during the show.
Doors opened at 7 and the show started a few minutes after 8. Bobby Miyamoto was their opener. He performed for about 10 minutes and got the crowd amped up for the main acts.
Surprisingly, they did not come out together. Rob came out first and the crowd clapped and cheered loudly. He performed for about 45 minutes talking about everything from his life with his wife and kids, the pandemic, Trump and Biden and even his vasectomy story. The laughter radiated through the room during that one.
He joked that there was no hotel connected to the casino and nothing was in walking distance from where he was staying. Schneider recounted how he needed to get food and tried to walk to GIANT, but found out later that wasn’t a good idea and decided to take an Uber instead. Someone should have told him about SEPTA, it was probably cheaper.
When Schneider was done, the crowd erupted in cheers and he introduced David Spade. The applause continued as he walked onto the stage, hugging his friend. Spade recounted how they haven’t seen each other in a while because of the pandemic, so it was nice they got to hang out tonight.
He talked about how California is going on their almost 3-year, “2 week” lockdown and how he missed going out to restaurants during that time. Spade also told a story about the time he almost died on a jet, when it had to make an emergency landing, but he made it seem a lot funnier than it sounds. Spade talked about how there’s a rumor that Rob might be on The Masked Singer and joked that only celebrities who no one knows go on that show.
They mostly talked about growing older and having to go to doctor’s appointments and getting physicals for movies.
When the set was finished, which went 15 minutes over, although no one was complaining, the crowd gave a standing ovation and the comedians thanked everyone for coming. Around 9:45, everyone crowded by the doors to go home, and they chatted about the show while walking out. Most people seemed to have enjoyed it.
From the venue to the show to the employees, everything there was great! The bar situation was a little intense, but if you didn’t want a drink, there was nothing to worry about.
Overall, the show was worth the price paid. The Xcite Center is small enough, where you can pretty much see from wherever you sit. If you get a chance to see this 10 out of 10 show, go do it!
