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.

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.

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".
Already being a huge, lifelong fan I was very eager to view this show/movie. I could not stop laughing the entire time. It was non-stop comedy. Robin Williams is a total comic genius. His jokes ranged from pop-culture, drugs, politics, sex, crazy foreigners, and all those water bottles with minds of their owns. I was never bored waiting for the next joke; it was like one big joke with boundless and endless humor. Not only does it appeal to many audiences and is painfully clever, but he is so physically connected to his spread that he is not only telling his jokes...he IS his jokes.
Well done Mr. Williams, well done!
