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 ...

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.

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.

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."

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.

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!

What can you say about Robin Williams other than he is a genius on natural speed. He's the tops in funny. Wish he had other CD's. I love to laugh like this! Loved every bit. Highly recommend! AAA+++

With the stunning passing of Robin Williams, I went back to reflect and make some sense and rekindle the delight that was his comedic genius. Originally an HBO special, I hadn't heard this since I was a teenager all those years ago. But I still remembered a lot of it. Robin at the height of his Stand-Up career? Actually, Robin wasn't really doing a lot of shows like this. He was a movie star and film was where he worked his magic. But we were afforded the opportunity to see A Night At The Met and this was truly a treat. Not since An Evening With Robin Williams had HBO done a full show of Robin's live comedic work. Bits and pieces on the Tonight Show or Comedy Relief specials was about all we got when Robin wasn't making us gasp for breath in the cinema. Staggering. That's the word that comes to mind. Hearing Robin take the stage at the Metropolitan Opera House in NYC gives me chills. The comedy, like Robin himself, is far-flung and erratic and inspired. From politics to drugs and alcohol to his love for his kids and the world at large. A Night At The Met is a perfect image cut in time of the true spectacle, the true brilliance, that was Robin Williams. Getting the album was a wonderful reminiscence. Seek out the video. It's kinda hard to find, but definitely worth it. Robin was a gifted performer that will truly never be replaced. We were afforded such a wide variety of trinkets to remember him by from his first appearance on Happy Days as Mork toPopeye, Mrs. Doubtfire, Hook, Jumanji, and on into his more heroic films like Good Morning, Vietnam, Dead Poets Society and Goodwill Hunting. Remember him in Dead Again? Moscow On The Hudson? The Fisher King? Such a great body of work. A Night At The Met is just another gem in the crown that was Robin Williams. Enjoy it. And smile.

Dig it!
