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.

Alternate Versions

A number of jokes originally broadcast on HBO were cut on the DVD, presumably for music rights:
  • Robin makes reference to the theater, the Broadway Theater, and does imitations of Ethel Merman singing "Baby Got Back" and Carol Channing singing "One of Us".
  • During the airport security routine, a "West Side Story" joke was cut.
  • When referencing Dick Cheney, Robin sings "Me and My Shadow Government".

Can it get funnier
4 January 2004 | by iwatcheverythingSee all my reviews

Robin is great. Always has been and probably always will be. I have watched everything that I can get my hands on with him in it. This is got to be the best comedy routine I have seen in ages. Not many comedians can keep an audience interested for an hour and a half and also keep them laughing till the very end. If this film gets many more votes it may end up in the top 250 here on imdb. So watch and vote. You will not regret it.
