"Like a baby in a blenderrr!"
23 November 2002 | by (Dorset, England) – See all my reviews

Classic stand-up from Robin Williams, this should make anyone laugh (hard).

Ahh the good ole days (yawn), I remember seeing this as a nipper and although I didn't get many of the jokes back then I still thought it was damn funny! Probably due to Robin's crazy voices and schizophrenic style of delivery.

On seeing this again at a slightly more mature state of being, it is downright hysterical. As the cover says, More LPM (laughs per minute) than any other comedy, and it's right. I've never seen anyone so quick at delivering, Williams just goes crazy (or actually IS for that matter), and there is some truly great improv.

I mostly only review the best stuff I've seen and this is no exception, closely followed by the late Bill Hicks this is the greatest stand-up routine I ever have, and probably ever will see.
