Comedy Tour is Williams’ First in Six Years
This fall, award-winning actor and comedian Robin Williams will embark on his first U.S. stand-up comedy tour since his critically acclaimed 26-date tour in 2002. Entitled “Weapons of Self-Destruction,” the show will highlight Williams’ trademark free associations and riffs on social and political absurdities. The high-energy tour launches September 25th and Williams will remain on the road until the end of 2008. A first round of dates has been confirmed with additional cities to be added. Tickets will go on sale beginning in August.
“It’s an election year, which is basically Christmas for stand-up comics,” said Williams. “And I figured I should get my ass on the road while the Shrub is still in office. A lot has happened in the world and in my life since I last did this six years ago and there’s no better thrill and no better therapy than getting on that high-wire in front of a live audience.”
Robin Williams is going on tour and ever since I saw his Live at the Met special, I have always wanted to see his stand-up live. Sadly he is not coming to LA, but I still felt the need to share the news with y’all because it is too good to keep to myself! So if you go tell me all about it.
