An Evening with Robin Williams (1983)

Robin Williams performs his act in San Francisco's Great American Music Hall. Although he does do some of his more well known routines, much of the footage is devoted to Williams' frenetic, completely off the wall improvisation.

Trivia

When imitating Alexander Haig doing late night commercials, Robin sang, "If you want a better deal, go see Al." This was a parody of commercials in Southern California at the time for Cal Worthington Ford in Long Beach. (The "go see Cal" part was often also mistaken as "pussy cow" due to how the singer said it.) See more »

At the end when Robin meets up with his alter ego from the beginning, he says "Pop?" but his mouth doesn't move. See more »

Quotes

Robin Williams: [pointing an audience member's camera into his pants] Let's give you a very special picture. There you go. Yes. Oh, yes, I'm glad you had the old wide-angle lens on there. I can't wait 'til you take that to Fotomat.

Timeless Manic Hysteria
13 August 2000 | by claybo76See all my reviews

An extremely enjoyable fast-paced barrage of Robin Williams live in San Francisco. He is amazing to watch as he bounces of audience members and his own manic genius. Highly recommended for those who have only seen Robin in the movies. It is impossible not to laugh out loud, as funny as Eddie Murphy's Delirious. The only drawback is the 'encore' and the ending which incorporate one of his SNL characters. Nevertheless it is well worth watching.
