4.0 out of 5 stars You should have heard what they left out! February 25, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Robin Williams is flat-out insane on stage, and "A Night ..." does a fairly good job of catching his insanity. From riffs on Tom Landry directing "Swan Lake" ("take Giselle, throw her downfield ten, fifteen yards!") to getting busted with cocaine ("I'm okay, I'm okay, red, blue, red, blue--OH, ...) to fatherhood ("I expected three nomads to come into the delivery room--'we saw a star, dude?'"), only the most humor-resistant won't crack up. The only disappointment is that this wasn't a double CD, since Robin did about 2.5 hours at our show, a lot of which was even funnier than what appears here! Believe it or not, Robin only made three comedy albums--his first two, "Reality ... what a concept" and "Throbbing Python of Love" are long out of print. "Reality" is his funniest, but "A Night ..." isn't far behind. Yeah, he's now an Oscar-winning actor, but "A Night ..." reminds us that Robin Williams wasn't always so earnest ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Robin tells it like it is July 7, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Ever wonder what it would be like if someone told you the facts of life in the form of comedy? Well folks,it doesn't get any better than this! Great Quote: After seeing his child after his wife gave birth, "My God he's hung like a bear.." and the doc says... "...that's the umbilical cord Mr.Williams." Every time I listen it,I appreciate his honesty more!.."If you want ribs,go get barbecue." "A woman should be president,there would never be a war...just every 28 days,SEVERE NEGOTIATIONS."

5.0 out of 5 stars Robin Williams - the king of 1980's humor July 24, 2001
By Tim
Format:Audio CD
Robin Williams' irreverant humor has been a delight to many and has - unlike most comedians - remained rather uncontroversial. While he certainly delves into obsenities, it is not the gratuitous (and, in the end, unfunny) cursing one hears on a Richard Pryor album. It is instead the work of a master at the art of improvisation.
"A Night at the Met" is Williams's most enduring stand-up work for good reason. Each performance he puts on is unique and different, and this one is more unique than most. In it, he attacks fatherhood, pregnancy, sex and all things in between. He delves into foreign affairs and the Reagan presidency. Though he is a San Francisco liberal, one can tell here that the jokes are not meant as political statement, either. They are the kind that even a Reagan Republican finds himself or herself laughing at. He attacks the ideas of drug and alcohol addicts and makes a joke of his own former alcoholism.
Perhaps the one thing that is most striking about "A Night at the Met" is Williams's profound honesty in everything he says. He does not have a script, cue cards, or a set schedule for gags. Instead, he draws from a box of props and goes from there. It is honest and genuine. And that is the most important thing in any art form.

5.0 out of 5 stars This man is a nut! May 4, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I don't think Robin Williams does standup much anymore, as he has tried to be both an artist in both comedy and dramatic movies. However, after listening to Williams do his "A Night at the Met" concert in the late 1980's, I am convinced Robin Williams was one of the master of the stand-up comics. Johnny Carson once called him the man that would do anything and everything at any time. Most men would do their routine and be serious for the rest of the night on a talk show. Not Williams, as he would continue to entertain and do off the wall humor until everybody had almost died from laughter.
Williams can almost be described as "insane" on this album. He improvs for the first few minutes, and then launches into everything from alcohol and drugs, to President Reagan, and finally to sex. The man for almost an hour drives you crazy with his twisted humor. It is a shame he would rather do serious movies, but I guess he felt he needed to evolve. Still, if you want to see of Robin Williams as the craziest nut on the planet. You need to listen to this.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Do you like the play, Mr. Lincoln?-DUCK!" January 27, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Robin Williams is the master of comedy. Furthermore, his jokes are intelligent. Don't expect any stupid, slapstick stuff on this masterpiece. Williams is the master of his craft. You will be rolling on the floor and up the walls, clutching your quivering ribs and wiping tears from your eyes, with laughter. You'll be praising God for blessing us with such an undyingly amusing man who shares his insights with the world. If you have a sense of humor, or if you don't(like me), you must get this album!

5.0 out of 5 stars At His Best November 20, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I've had the VHS of this and the Audio since 1989, simply his best work ever. Still funny today. However my VHS hath died and I'm searching for another or better yet a DVD version. No luck so far, I did replace my cassette with this identical CD version, awesome. Will the DVD ever be available?

2.0 out of 5 stars Severly Modified July 23, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was very disappointed with A Night at the Met. I use to own this on VHS tape. Since I am commuting now in my car, I decided to buy this album, because I loved the routine. Unfortunately, the best parts of the comic performance have been edited out of the CD version of Robin Williams' performance. Most noticeable to me was the bit about marijuana and the cat, which is sadly missing. I was really hoping to relieve the performance I had watched many times, but sadly, due to the editing of this CDs, it will most likely be shelved.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as expected
Too vulgar. Would not recommend it. Love Robin Williams but this had too many "F" bombs. This was before he reached his peak.

This is simply a CD you need for your comedy collection. If you aren't a Robin fan (if that is the case, you must be from another planet), you will be after soaking up his wit!
