Rob Schneider

I felt some trepidation prior to the show as Rob's acting, or at least the characters he portrays tend to irritate rather than amuse (with the exception of The Hot Chick which for some reason I find endearing) - I decided that he would either be awful or terribly funny. In the end he wasn't either. He did get laughs, he was funny but he wasn't hilarious.

For the price of the ticket ($70) I would have expected more. There was no warm up act and Rob himself was disappointing. He joked about the normal topics comedians use; age, the difference between the sexes etc. There were brief tries at trying to relate the material to the audience but no real local adaptations or friendly repartee. Frankly if we didn't have American television here most of his humour may have been lost. The show was over in an hour.

There wasn't any unique material or anything that lingered after the laugh was had. Sometimes the big name doesn't live up to the hype.

Rob Schneider was only in New Zealand for two shows; Wellington and Auckland. His tour continued on to Australia.

I thought it would be scary but it wasn't scary cos it would be scary and I would get scared but no it wasn't scary, it was funny. The bits when the monster kept coming out and making the funny noises and going "ah!" and when he tried to show Timmy how to swim and tried to tell him about the colossal squid it was funny.

Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs

It was really good. I was really excited because the girl that did ballet at my birthday party she was going to be the Vixen. She could've been the vixen but she might not have been the Vixen because she only does it every second time. And she did beautiful dancing.

Snow White was really pretty and the dwarf Ticklish was really funny. The cat was quite small and quiet and she was meowing most of the time. And I liked the Queen she was very beautiful as well as Snow White but Snow White was prettier and I liked the Queen because she kept changing herself. She was a young lady, then a old woman then she couldn't get back so she shut herself in a dark castle which she was going to do to the huntsmen but she did it to herself. Snow White was very nice and I'm glad she came back to life because there would've been no prettiest person because the Queen she stayed old lady ugly.
