Excellent Stand Up

Over the years I've watched this time and again on a fairly worn out VHS tape that I captured from the original HBO special in 1990.

Robert tells his share of jokes during this "One City World Tour," but it is his observational humor and his story-telling where he really charms the audience. Great stories about working with Nicholson, getting to kiss Kim Basinger on-screen ( "And I got paid for it! And I didn't get it right on the first try, either!" ) His style is completely different from the manic antics of Robin Williams, but no less endearing, perhaps moreso. You can tell how much he is enjoying working with the audience, and it's contagious - the crowd really warms up to him during the show, and the laughs get louder and bigger as he goes.

I'll never forget his great story about trying to buy a painting for his traditional-minded Father. It goes on for at least ten minutes, and includes a romantic interlude, the stereotype that your Father is always right, his first appearance on the Tonight Show, his Father's passing and by the end you're pretty much laughing AND crying it's such a great story.

Highly recommended, not very much vulgarity ( really none by today's standards ) and a genuinely feel good hour with Robert Wuhl.
