"The only thing I don't like about
Regan -- who poked fun at everything from his childhood to cashiers -- told the story of how another family had the audacity to cut in front himself, his son and daughter on a ride.
The comedian imagined grabbing the other father's pocket contents and the mother's purse, flinging the belongings and watching them land in a nearby flower bed. Regan said, in response to such anarchy, he had even prepared a speech.
"When you stepped in front of us in a clearly marked line, I thought that was the end of all reason," Regan said.
Regan's material comes from his everyday life experiences. His brilliance is conveying that with comical visuals of facial expressions and body language.
In one bit, he wondered if there's a checkout lane in America left where the cashier does not ask, "Do you have a rewards card?"
"No, and I'm begging you that this be the end of our conversation," he replied.
He touched on current events, mentioning
Regan also wondered whether the inventor of the bagpipes was finished yet.
"How can you tell if anyone is playing it well?" he asked.
Regan performed for 65 minutes straight and took a minute break before returning to the stage to perform a 10-minute encore of his old material.
For fans who know his comedy well, several members of the audience shouted out requests. Regan remarked about how he wasn't a good student in school, and never liked when he and other students had to participate in spelling bees. He tried to improvise, and some in the audience tried to correct him doing his own material.
"I know how it goes, but I appreciate your help," Regan said, laughing.
"You meet someone again and again and again until you find someone who isn't horrified by your appearance," she said.
