Editorial Reviews

Robin Williams - comedian, writer and Academy Award-winning actor - returned to HBO for his first solo TV concert since 2002. The show was filmed at Washington D.C.'s DAR Constitution Hall on his sold-out "Weapons Of Self Destruction" national tour. Robin covers such topics as global warning, health care in America (suggesting a "cash for clunkers" for elderly relatives), and more personal topics such as his recent open heart surgery. Bonus features include clips from Robin's previous concerts - some dating back to 1978 - as well as tour highlights filmed all along the 2009 tour.

5.0 out of 5 stars An hour and a half of side splitting laughs March 17, 2012
Format:DVD
I watched this on a Delta flight. I was laughing so hard, I had tears running down my face. All the flight attendants came by to see what i was watching. Like the laughter therapy where one person starts laughing and then everybody starts laughing too, people around me were smiling and laughing even though they weren't watching the show.
Yes there was an abundant use of "F*" word, but if you looked past that... you get an hour and a half of really cleansing laughter.

Robin Williams doesn't deliver a punch line then spend the next minute repeating and "explaining" it like most of the standup comedians do.

The other one on the flight was a Carrie Fisher stand up autography. This was good too.

5.0 out of 5 stars RIP August 12, 2014
Format:DVD
Not surprising all of his DVD's are now sold out. I have been in tears on & off since yesterday. This man had the ability to make me laugh until I cried, cry until I laughed. Can't say I had a favorite because so many were good, Patch Adams, Doubtfire, Dead Poets, etc. I am heartbroken for his family, heartbroken that he felt he had no one to talk to and felt like he had no other way out. Just like with Philip Seymour Hoffman, there is an emptiness of the greatness that was. RIP Robin, you will be terribly missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Robin Williams is back. April 4, 2010
By P.A.
Format:DVD
A small side note to start this off: the CD/DVD combo includes the actual DVD of this product, not just highlights... so if you like comedy CDs, shell out the extra couple bucks and buy the CD/DVD.

The performance on this DVD is very good; this is Robin Williams doing what he does best, which is stand up comedy. I have seen many reviews about his post surgery shows all saying that he is toned down: wouldn't you be after having open heart surgery? Now that we have the no brainer out of the way, let's continue.

There is plenty of profanity as there ALWAYS is in a Robin Williams stand-up special, this is not a special you watch with your young children. The material is mostly fresh, besides a few jokes re used from his 2002 special, but he changed them a bit to where it wasn't simply old hat. He is still quick thinking and very energetic and any nay sayers need only look up the video of Robin on the Craig Ferguson show to quickly silence themselves.

Some 'special' camera effects are used during a part where he is discussing LSD... but how else is someone supposed to convey this, short of telling everyone in the audience to drop some acid. Robin may have had surgery but it does not take over his show, he has not become preachy or self righteous but instead he has molded his life experience to fit into his act, and he does a pretty good job of it, i.e. viagra jokes.

In terms of politics, Robin does not mince words about his political views... Bush, Cheney, Arnold, Palin, Clinton(s), etc. if you are a conservative of any kind then you should probably not watch or listen to this unless you have a valium handy, but then again if you're conservative you probably don't have a sense of humor unless it's Glenn Beck parading around the stage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious! December 7, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Robin Williams is brilliant in a great variety of performances, but this was a hilarious reminder of his ability to do standup comedy that never even allows you to catch your breath from laughing so hard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr. Williams never disappoints! April 8, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I saw this show live with my dad in November and couldn't wait to get the discs to watch and listen to it again. I ordered two to give one to my dad for his birthday last week also (perfect timing!). Robin's raw wit and energy are as fast and furious as they've always been, and he covers a broad range of current topics. The language and subject matter are a little cruder than his HBO-sponsored tour 7-8 years ago, but as long as you are not offended by his brand of humor you will not have any issues.

I can't believe he's pushing 60 and still going this strong on stage, especially after coming off of open hear surgery. I hope he's still going strong for several more tours!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great show, but a "borrowed" joke at the end
Watched this on Amazon Prime. Great show by Robin. Only thing - at the end, when he came back on and did that final joke. It came from John Carpenter's prelude of The Thing.
