Entitled Weapons of Self-Destruction, this show will highlight Robin Williams' trademark free associations and riffs on social and political absurdities. The high-energy tour launches September 25 and Williams will remain on the road until the end of 2008.
Williams last toured in 2002 when he returned to the stand-up scene after a sixteen year hiatus. The sold-out tour earned the distinction of being one of the highest-grossing comedy tours in history and culminated in a final performance filmed by HBO and broadcast live from New York City. The resulting July 2002 HBO broadcast, Robin Williams: Live on Broadway, was nominated for five Emmy awards.
With four Golden Globe awards, four Grammy awards and an Oscar to his credit, Williams has become one of the most successful and beloved figures in entertainment history. In addition to his upcoming tour, Williams will soon be seen starring in the Disney comedy Old Dogs opposite John Travolta and will reprise his role as "Teddy Roosevelt" in the sequel Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian.
