Product Description

Product Description

Williams,Robin ~ Live On Broadway

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

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)

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.

Its good to see a comedian having fun..i get the sense this is what comics really want the live audience..the real love..comic audience realtionship..we are all watching in on it..and the audience are average persons/..paying stiffs in new york..rather than a select group..some groups we all like to we have a live new york show..telecast on a prelude those too you to the years have passed..i was old enough to see mork and Mindy..the Saturday Live Show..the stint with the Belushi Brothers..and the parties and the gossipy stories released..the younger many of those party tales which followed the actor like a shadow..why not turn all life..put it through the blender..verything is mixed like a drink and we can all consume together young old..and end with a mystic masturbation scene..thats the whole show,,fun..exciting get what you starts with sex and romance ends there a lot thrown in between..everyone will get something different out of watching a wedding and talkin gof it the next day..years ago the press announced his first film Popeye..which I felt an odd choice..whether he would stick around in films..the studio photos..all muscled up..testosterone in this act Im amazed..the poor man a la jackie Gleason..french bits the quebecois..he knows many places intimately..often more than people...thats part of his humour..don Rickles and the insults..the impersonations..and the time..not like jerry lewis in costume..trying to relay..even simulate sex at the and out zany..thousands of impersonations..where is the real actor camera hes often just a szany joking and almost on you dont see the real person..and ruin his act...HES ALL ACT..and you get your moneys worth..Read more ›

I'll tell you one thing that I am getting SICK of....all these new stand-up comic shows on Comedy Central. Geez, everyone's talking about reality TV getting out of control, and they're right, but this tidal wave of stand up comics that aren't funny in the least is getting to me more.
It's okay though, because there is a solution to all this madness that so many are confused by, and it's this DVD. Robin Williams returns from his mission of playing serious roles in Good Will Hunting, Insomnia and One Hour Photo to show that he's still the same funny guy that had us rolling on the ground years earlier in Good Morning Vietnam and Mrs. Doubtfire.
What makes this DVD so hilarious is Williams just will not let up. He barely pauses to take a breath. Joke after joke after joke come out, each one funnier than the last, not giving you any time to recover for the next joke. Even when he screws up (which he actually does quite often) he's ready with another joke to cover up what he just messed up on. Williams is brilliant, with writing and with improvisation, and he balances both quite well.
From jokes about cat territoriality to Osama Bin Laden to Gandhi jeans, Williams proves to be the funniest man alive...again. I can honestly say I have never laughed harder in my entire life as I did when I watched Robin Williams Live On Broadway for the first time.
Almost two hours of pure hilarity? Why not pick it up?
