Robin Williams: Weapons of Self Destruction

Filmed at Constitution Hall in early 2009, Robin Williams takes us through his usual manic performance with takes on current issues of the time including the Beijing Olympics, the bailouts, texting, the recently elected president, GPS navigation, porn, rehab, hands off driving, and the creation of the human anatomy. Like his other riotous television stand-up specials including "Live at the Met" and "Live on Broadway", Williams is a hyperactive ball of invention replete of wild body contortions, impersonations, and humorous musings. Some of the material is recycled from previous outings, but it is still some kind of wonder to see him get on a roll and command the typical uproarious reaction.
