This is the funniest stand up that I have seen in a long time. Thank you Robin for making me laugh. Highly recomemded for anyone who wants to laugh their *#@ off.

With all of Robin Williams brilliance you'd think he could avoid multiple references to oral sex; along with demonstrations. Definitely not what I expected to be sharing with my family on Christmas day. It was just too crude. The super fast pace didn't give the watcher time to pause and enjoy each one liner, either. Some were lost in the fast lane.

Robin Williams has elevated his art to a form of holistic healing with laughter. He has taken being human to new heights. I love the whole thing! Saw it at a time of family tragedy and was lifted back to earth! Thank God for him

Tremendously funny. If his humor is a little crass for your taste during this one, try his 2 hour interview from ''Inside the Actor's Studio'' on Bravo network. Either way, you'll laugh til you cry.

I have always viewed Robin Williams as a talented and gifted stand up comedian...until now. This live on Broadway video was horrible. I could hardly sit through the trashy foul language. He does not need to use foul adjectives to tell his stories and still be funny. In fact most of his stories were funny until he started cursing. Don't buy...wast of money and time watching. I am thinking of turning my DVD into a coaster...or a frisbee.

I have always loved Robin Williams. He is a superb actor, and very awesome comedian. This concert shows how infinite his comedy and being will be. Robin immortilizes himself within this show. If you love Robin but have not seen this show than you do not know his full comedy potential.

I had to watch it 3-4 times because i was laughing so hard. He can take the worst thing in the world and make it the funniest stuff you have ever seen.

Robin Williams has topped off his career with this hilarious stand up performance. I don't think my stomach has hurt so much from laughter. This is a definate must-see.

never have i laughed so hard before seeing Live on Broadway. Williams has reinvented himself to make adults and maybe an unsuspecting teenager die by laughing so hard. the cursing made it all the more enjoyable. i never liked Robin before now.

This is the funniest hour and a half of stand-up comedy that I have ever seen. Though there may be a lot of swearing, Robin Williams lets his true comedic abilities shine in this DVD

Once again, Robin Williams has made me laugh so hard my stomach hurt. I watch a previous 'Live Performance' of his while I was pregnant-almost put me into labor, I laughed so hard! I would let my teenagers watch this performance except the last bit is too graphic, even for the imagination. I loved it, but I don't want to watch it with my sons, or should I say they won't want to watch it with me! Still a hilarious, side spliting performance that I recommend highly for a maturer crowd!

Robin is so quick whitted that you have to actually watch it 3 or 4 times before you get EVERY joke he makes. But it's worth it and you never get tired of it...

I've always liked Robin Williams, but I swear, this is the funniest thing I've ever seen. I'm only 12, but I still laughed so hard I could barely breath. His Imitations of Bush, Blair and Bin Laden were especially funny.

One of the funniest comic acts that I've ever watched. Great jokes on politics, religion, and other topics! A MUST BUY!!!!

This was the funniest thing I have ever seen. I loved his anti France and him making fun of Priests part, but the thing that stands out the most is his Scotish golf part. I almost died laughing.
Guest More than 1 year ago
''Live On Broadway'' is a must see for any Robin Williams fan or just for anyone needing a good laugh in these, sometimes too serious, times. I've watched it a few times and laughed just as hard as the first. The bits about who has atomic bombs and how the Scottish invented golf are my favorites.
Guest More than 1 year ago
This is hilarious.. his many different voices will have you laughing the entire time this is a must buy for any stand up fan

Well, yes I am French. But it doesn't mean I didn't find it funny. Robin Williams is the best of the best stand-up comedians. I've never seen a funnier show. Williams is not a human being, he is a broad laugh!

This special by Robin Williams might be one if not the best stand up routine i have ever seen. Honestly how many other people out there could go on about the olympics like that and to narrow it down the luge,so in my opinion this is most likely the best stand up routien i have ever seen. the first time I ever saw it i cought it half way through and it still made me cry from laughter. So this dvd is highly recomended if you like to laugh.

This is BY FAR the best stand up act ever. I laughed harder than I ever thought possible. I've always thought Robin Williams was ok and liked some of his movies, but after watching this, I can't tell you how amazed I am. He is incredible. This is definitely not something for young children (even though some of his movies, etc. are), but it really is the funniest thing I have ever seen! The things he talks about and acts out will make you laugh til you cry. If you need something that is a gauranteed laugh out loud and entertaining every time you watch it, this is the DVD you must own. It is amazing. There are not words for it. It's Robin Williams like you've never seen him before. It's out of this world! I would have spent my life savings for a ticket to this show if I had any idea it was going to be what it turned out to be! Fortunately for me (and you) its all on DVD! You absolutely have to see it. I PROMISE YOU, it is a million times worth it!

Love Robin Williams, his comedy is always so on point and his spin on everything happening in the world brings out the hilarious facts. Robin Williams is definitely a great comedian, he has such a quick wit and improve skills that this DVD had us laughing so much are sides hurt. I always think, it can't be as good as the last DVD, but this is better and that amazes me because we still find he older DVD comedy specials funny and entertaining.
