Audience Member If you like Robin Williams, than you will most likely like his stand up specials. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review lovro h Excellent stand up! Had a lot of laughs :D Since this is from 1982, most of the jokes were aimed at the culture and politics from that time, so I didn't quite understand all of the jokes, but Robin Williams' impressions and his acting was something really special. It is a must see for comedy fans and those alike. RIP Robin Williams Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the better Robin Williams live stand-up movies. San Francisco, 1982. Williams is in top-form here, the jokes coming thick and fast. As most of his act is improvised, he pretty much goes where his mind takes him. Most of the time it works, but sometimes he goes up blind alleys. Quite hilarious, nevertheless. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Robin Williams' first stand-up DVD from 1982 - before he became too famous! It's interesting to see him still developing his material & characters that he would later totally own & be in control of. Not too many hysterical moments, but plenty to enjoy. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member OMG, my stomach ached and face hurt from laughing!! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member I was laughing so hard that I had to replay the DVD 4 times. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews
