Trivia

At the beginning of this show, the announcer said "Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome, Robin Williams!" about five seconds too early. (He was supposed to say it so that the end of the announcement would butt right up against the first drum beat of the opening music.) It was the only show on the entire tour where that happened.

Quotes

[impersonating Martha Stewart]
Robin Williams: I like to consider it more like "severe companion." If you only have one room, and I like to call it my "private space," use the light well. You know. You have vertical bars, don't use horizontal blinds. Also, think of your ankle bracelet as an accessory.

I saw Robin Williams in concert when he came to Portland.
14 July 2005 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I saw Robin Williams in concert when he came to Portland in April, 2002. By the end of the concert, I was hoarse from laughing; you just can't imagine how hilarious he is unless you hear his monologue.

"Robin Williams: Live on Broadway" contains most of the same jokes that he made in Portland, but it's still just as funny. I think that my favorite part was his solution to the 2002 Winter Olympics scandal. But also his comments about nuclear bombs, drunken Scottish men inventing golf, and other such things.

You gotta see it just to understand how funny it is. You just might die laughing. This proves that Robin Williams does best when he's doing his own stuff.
