Quotes

Robin Williams: We're a heavily medicated society. All the drugs we take: Prozac, Effexor, Valium. I thought for the last ten years, we've been on some weird fucking drug - the whole country - called "Fukitol."
[laughter]
Robin Williams: What a weird fucking drug. And we're just coming out of it and we're kind of waking up.
[cheers and applause]
Robin Williams: Fuckin' A! It's weird. It's like you're going "last thing I remember was the economy was working and there was a budget surplus." Yeah! "Where's Clinton?" We impeached him. "Fuck!"

Robin scrapes the bottom of the barrel
1 April 2010 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

This comedy set is fine for people who laugh at any drug joke or penis joke, no matter how old or poorly constructed, but Robin Williams used to be so much better, more original and with a greater range of schtick. It's hard not to notice how often he punctuates a gag by announcing that it's "number one" of a series of observations. (Usually he does provide another but without numbering it.) His material about growing older rang true, and it was certainly fresher than a Jimmy Stewart imitation or a talking-vagina gag (both of which he does resort to), but I suppose that to focus on approaching the age of 60 would be to lose much of the audience-- at least the audience that we see photographed, who seem to be half Robin's age.
