The mime alone is worth watching, and although the performance features many of the corny gags theme park shows are known for, it delivers them with a surgeon's precision. Sure, it may be more incredible to watch a dolphin or whale act on a human's whim, but it's not nearly as entertaining as this. Sea lions and otters were born comedians.
Oh, and walruses. Also very funny.
188.8.131.52,The animal behaviors and gags aren't the things to see over and over, but how the trainers handle whatever the animals throw at them. The shows that the animals do what & when they are supposed to go quick but are always the most boring ones. I even heard of a show the trainers did all by themselves one day because all the animals were in a rut and the stadium was packed - the show must go on.
The question is, when are they ever going to be allowed to swap this show out for another one? The San Diego sea lion show has changed three times in the last six years and C&STPI has been going strong for a total of what 14?! They were supposed to get a new show after Blue Horizons went in, then it was Believe instead, followed by A'lure. Sheesh - enough already give em some new material to work with PLEASE. I'm just hoping there isn't any cirque elements or all schmaltzy. It needs to stay true to the animal behaviors and stay the comedy relief that the show is.
Robert, have to concur - Sea Lions Tonight is the best! IF anyone is ever at SW in the summer, you must stick around for this.Noremac
