the best of Williams
18 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

why oh why won't they release these early Robin Williams appearances on DVD?? if you are very very lucky, you might catch this or An Evening with Robin Williams on late night comedy central. robin Williams is unbelievably funny back in the old days. his humor may have been run by too much cocaine and liquor, but it was spot on--touching, sharp, and intelligent, happily devoid of an abundance of ethnic character voices. Williams was just as ridiculously manic running around the stage and up and down the aisles. He poured sweat and expletives, but he some how had a lighter touch.

who owns the rights to these shows?? release them and we will buy them!
