Nurse Blake's humor and stories are the real coping medicine of nurses of not only today, but for this 40+ year retired nurse. Laughter and real experiences helped us cope with the stress and pressure of bedside nursing even in the 70's. Yet, it is truly a gift to meet and care for people in crisis and know that you made a difference. To remain compassionate, you have to be able to laugh and in the end laughter is the "best medicine" for coping. Blake your stories reinforce that reality. Thank you for a great evening and reminding us of that. Can't wait to see you again! Come back to Boston soon!!

I first discovered Nurse Blake online. A lot of his content was hilarious! But honestly..I felt like it ended there. The first 30 minutes of his show seemed to have become a vent session about his family life and recently getting a divorce. I felt too much dirty laundry was aired (not to mention vulgarity). I felt this disconnect in wondering if it were about nursing, or his own perception. I just got lost. The last hour I felt like he was scrambling for content, coming up with anything to stall time. A lot of the stand up was old I had already seen online. I think he's sweet and can captivate an audience, but I do think these reviews should be reviewed by him to know how to turn the tour around!

First off, I adore Nurse Blake, I have followed him from the beginning. The PTO tour was so funny and uplifting for all nurses. This tour seemed to make fun of the different nurse specialties rather than emphasizing how great we all are. I know he’s been divorced and his life has changed, but I didn’t feel the warmth that I felt in the first tour. I agree with the others about the swearing, occasionally is fine, but he went overboard this tour. I still love him, and laughed at lots of his stuff, hoping to hear more upbeat and supportive material next time.

I drove an hour and a half to see this PTO comedy tour show. I love comedy and saw his skits before which were spot on. This tour was is a very big disappointment. We hardly laughed and a lot of his material was the same as his online skits. We couldn’t wait for it to end. I won’t be returning to any of his future shows. While I wish him luck l will go elsewhere because he just didn’t entertain me.

The skits I had seen online were fine. Totally disappointed with the continuous vulgarity & lewd actions. His program is definitely RR rated. Sorry - but, this does NOT represent the nursing staff I work with. I will say he is high- energy & probably feels he is representing the dilemmas faced by nurses in various situations

2.0 star rating Kayla from San Francisco, California


Wasn’t really relatable/funny/what I’d expect for shock advised. I hoped for more focus on healthcare, but instead so much about his personal life -cousins, parents, divorce - which really wasn’t funny… tried to make it vulgar and I don’t think it landed with the crowd. I think people attend the shows to hear about medicine and that’s really not what we got a lot of. When we did get it, it would be something already circulating online or at the very end he does a roast, but even that fell flat. Disappointed unfortunately!

There are so many funny things about nursing. In fact, if you couldn’t laugh as a nurse, you’d have to cry. But we found the amount of vulgarity and profanity in his content completely unnecessary, and demeaning to the nursing profession as a whole. I could not recommend this show.

2.0 star rating Joan Hollamon from Omaha, Nebraska


The show itself was okay. Had some laughs, but the price was much higher than what the show was worth.. lots of personal life stories and not enough about nursing. A friend of mine was asked to leave for taking a picture during the show and his team took her phone and deleted her pictures. Apparently he is very strict about no phones out during the show and pictures of him, which seems a bit overboard. The venue apologized and kept saying it was a Nurse Blake policy, but they did tell her to leave. Youtube might be a better option than expensive tickets.

You know, I really loved Nurse Blake online! He has always made me laugh. So I was excited to go with my work friends to see him. But I found him to be quite vulgar and nasty, awkwardly so. The content wasn’t even that funny and was barely about medicine/nursing at times! I would not go again. Loved being with friends but that is all.

2.0 star rating Laura from Raleigh, North Carolina


This was our 3rd time seeing Nurse Blake. While we did laugh a lot, it wasn't any of the skits and nurse humor we had enjoyed in the past. This show focused a lot on his recent divorce, his upbringing. He seemed more angry, when usually I felt uplifted by him. The show was also very vulgar and nurses have trash mouths, but I felt slightly traumatized by having seen this show. Will not see him again.

2.0 star rating Debbie Barton from Bonita Springs Florida 34135


I'm sorry. Content of show not related to title. I was expecting to see him and nursing. Not about his personal life. Not interested in the screen time shown across the stage. Looking like commercials. I paid to see him. Unprofessional. Selling his cruise???? Some of it was funny. I was disappointed. I am a 41 years experienced Rn expected more of what I saw on my feeds that were hilarious. Thanks

I had not expected the foul language from the beginning. It was in every line. I am not a prude and foul language is everywhere but this was too much. I left within 5 minutes.
