Robin Williams' Weapons of Self Destruction to Play NYC's Town Hall
In addition to tearing into eight years of George Bush's presidency and other political absurdities, the show touches on Williams' own struggles with divorce, addiction, and rehab, using the comedian's trademark free associations and riffs.
Williams relaunched the tour of his show on September 30, following a necessary postponement due to heart surgery. Among the other stops for the tour are Atlantic City, Chicago, Atlanta, Orlando, Detroit, Saint Louis, and Washington, D.C. As previously announced, the show is being filmed in D.C. to air as an HBO comedy event on December 6.
Williams has appeared on the New York stage in Waiting for Godot, and Robin Williams: Live on Broadway. He received the Academy Award for Good Will Hunting, and his many other films include Dead Poets Society, Mrs Doubtfire, Awakenings, Hook, The Fisher King, Patch Adams, Happy Feet, and Night at the Museum.For more information, visit robinwilliams.com.
