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

[commenting on airport and plane security]
Robin Williams: Airport security used to be like, BEEP, 'Okay, get on the plane. What's that, oh, that's a gun. Okay, get on the plane!' You could carry a four-inch blade on a plane. That's about that long. Now, you can't even take a nail-clipper on a plane. What, are they afraid you're gonna go "ALL RIGHT! Hand over the plane or the bitch loses a cuticle! I have a nail file! I can be irritating!" What, are they afraid you're gonna do a little West Side Story? "Going ...

ABSOLUTELY HILARIOUS
20 September 2004 | by (Ljubljana, Slovenia) – See all my reviews

The hardest thing in the acting business is to make someone laugh. And laugh hard! Robin Williams succeeds with what seems like ease, he just fires one joke after another and around 20% are so amazingly funny you wonder if you ever saw a funnier stand-up performance in your life. He made me realize one other thing - comedians are the philosophers of modern time, they are hardcore critics of current state of politics, drugs, sports, environment, just name it, they have witty and to the spot anecdotes for every subject. Without them we would be so much emptier, they realize stuff that's true just no one else sees it.

A brilliant and amazingly funny, (repeat this about 5 times to get the idea just how much), an unmissable performance. 9/10
