just hilarious
18 December 2009 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I saw Robin Williams in concert in 2002 and was hoarse from laughing by the end of the concert. "Robin Williams: Weapons of Self Destruction" is the same sort of humor, except focusing on more recent topics (namely Sarah Palin). As always with Williams, he's always a joke or two ahead by the time you figure out a joke, and laughing the whole time. One or two of the jokes I had heard before, but it's still a hoot how he puts everything out, complete with various accents (his Scottish accent is always the best).

This is certainly one of Williams's best. It shows that without a doubt, Williams is best in unrestrained form (I have no plans to ever see "Old Dogs"). Just hilarious.
