Trivia

The reference to John Ashcroft losing to a dead man is true. The "dead man" was Missouri Governor Mel Carnahan. Carnahan was running for Senator, but died in a plane crash in October three weeks before the election. It was too late to remove his name from the ballot. But Carnahan defeated Ashcroft in the election. His widow Jean served his term in the Senate. See more »

I saw Robin Williams in concert when he came to Portland.
14 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

I saw Robin Williams in concert when he came to Portland in April, 2002. By the end of the concert, I was hoarse from laughing; you just can't imagine how hilarious he is unless you hear his monologue.

"Robin Williams: Live on Broadway" contains most of the same jokes that he made in Portland, but it's still just as funny. I think that my favorite part was his solution to the 2002 Winter Olympics scandal. But also his comments about nuclear bombs, drunken Scottish men inventing golf, and other such things.

You gotta see it just to understand how funny it is. You just might die laughing. This proves that Robin Williams does best when he's doing his own stuff.
