Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Sharper and deeper than Robin Williams's previous road material, Live on Broadway is a mature comedian's view of all things to do with power, prejudice, and paranoia in the 21st century. On the anthrax scare of 2001: "The Senate cleared out of their building but told the rest of us, 'Get on with your normal lives!'" On his solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict over Jerusalem: "Time share!" On the pitfalls of America's deepening alliance with Britain: "The House of Commons is like Congress with a two-drink minimum." A viewer may have to slog through Williams's tedious breast fetishism, but patience is quickly rewarded with bitchy takes on Martha Stewart facing prison, solid satire about French existentialist judges at the Olympics, and subversive op-eds about the Bush administration's inability to clarify terrorist threats to the public ("Has the CIA become the Central Intuitive Agency?"). --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny as hell July 11 2004
Format:DVD
Man Robin Williams funny as hell. I pissed my pants i was laughin so damn hard. This is a great dvd. It has an easter egg that shows every cuss word he says it is hilarious. He goes on about so many diffrent topics. Its crazy. Someone must have put something in that water, he went threw about 20 bottles of it. My favorite part was when he was doin the bit about drunk scots inventing golf. " i wanna hit a ball in a gopher hole" "OH you mean like pool?" "Fu*k off pool! Not with a straight stick! With a little fu*ked up stick." " OH you mean like croquet?" "Fu*k croquet! Well put the ball hundreds of yards away. And well put tall grass and bushes just to fu*k with your ball. And at the end well put a flat spot with a flag just to give you hope. Then well put sand and bushes just to fu*k with your ball again!"
In one word Id say this movie was Geniusly Awesome super terrificly pimped out. (OK i cheated a little)

4.0 out of 5 stars Smart, sharp, hilarious, but overlong July 18 2004
Format:DVD
This was my first exposure to Robin Williams as a standup comic, and this "Live on Broadway" act certainly makes up for all those mushy sentimental movies that he had starred in before this special. He lets loose here in a sustained comic bout of Williams-style voice impressions and sharp observations and adult jokes that I've never had the pleasure of witnessing in any of his movies (except, maybe, in small spurts). As a standup comic, he might not as smooth a performer as George Carlin (my personal favorite) is onstage, but Williams' energy makes up for a lot, and even makes otherwise stupid jokes make you laugh hysterically. (You know how you can tell he is expending as much energy as humanly possible in this show? By the huge amount of water bottles he has on stage.) His material is not as focused as some of the best standup comics, but I rather liked his improvisatory style---he goes from one thing to another in record time, giving his performance a nicely chaotic feel. (A lot of his best bits, mostly dealing with politics, are delivered quickly and randomly and then dispensed with.) And yet all of it flows together nicely (even if some bits are inevitably better than others).
So what's the problem? I think perhaps 99 minutes or so of one man comically riffing about anything and everything is still perhaps a bit too long for its own good. I've watched this on more than one occasion, and by the hour mark I always feel myself getting rather exhausted by Williams' highly energetic schtick. It is not necessarily that his material starts to become significantly weaker or repetitive (although his French-bashing does get a little tiresome after a while), but while you still marvel at Williams' energy level...I dunno, I just kinda got tired of it on some level after a while.

5.0 out of 5 stars 50 Times Later, I'm Still Laughing Feb. 11 2004
Format:DVD
I have always enjoyed stand-up. I'm a part of the Comedy Club at college for a reason. I have heard my share of comics, yet none could make me laugh as hard as I did when I first saw this performance. Though definitely not for the kiddies, Robin Williams delivers one of the best performances I've seen, & I'm STILL laughing! Laugh as he does Bill Gates ("Monopoly's just a game, Senator, I'm trying to control the world!"), corrects the judges in the Winter Olympics ("They said that marjuana is a performance enhancing drug. Marjuana enhances many things: colors, tastes, sensations, but you are certainly not empowered!"), & talks about security on the West Coast ("One hummer, 2 national guardsmen on both sides of the Golden Gates Bridge. Problem is, the hummer & national guardsmen are in jungle camoflague. For those of you who have never been to Cali, the bridge is bright orange!")
I wiped tears from my eyes during the talks about animals ("Is it me, or are cat's drag queens?"), weather ("This winter, the temperatures were like, 80, 20, 30, 50! It was weather by sible, it was weird!"), absurd battles between celebs ("Even Kilegal is like, 'What the **** are you people doing? Why don't you get Hannible Lecture & I & Chef, just kick out the jams!'") & of course, who could forget...MICHAEL JACKSON! ("You're not a freak, you're just surgically enhanced & you've spent more money than the Vatican!")
So put the popcorn & soda down, otherwise you'll choke, & laugh the night away with Robin Williams. Definitely worth it!

..... "Live on Broadway" shows an artist attempting to rediscover his rhythms and delivery after being away from the stage since the Reagan Administration. It takes him a long time to get any traction - the first twenty minutes feature a string of breast jokes that might make even Governor Schwarzenegger blush - and he falls back on obscenities like a cushion when his material falls out beneath him.
Still, it is great to see him back on stage and when he finally gets rolling, the show's a blast. His legendary quick stream-of- conscious delivery clicks in and he transforms himself into an amazing variety of characters - a French ice-skating judge, German doctors, Scottish golfers, Jamaican bong-smokers, and Donald Rumsfeld. And, despite many of the complaints here, its good to see Williams get a little raunchy, he's been too squeaky-clean for too long. (I disliked his breast jokes because they were lame not because of the subject matter). ....Its an engaging document of a comedian rediscovering his talents ....
