Robin Williams has an upcoming HBO stand-up event called Weapons of Self Destruction. It debuts on HBO, Dec 6th at 12:30 am. It was taped at the DAR Constitution Hall in November. While I fully accept that Williams is human and allowed to be flawed, and he can joke about himself being someone who engaged in self-destruction, I simply cannot acknowledge without defending him in the same breath. I love him way too much. I want to give him a plate of fresh baked cookies, and I don’t like to bake or even be in a kitchen. THAT is how great my love for him is.
In this performance, Williams covered such topics global warming, sex and politics, the state of health care in the country (suggesting a cash for clunkers program for elderly relatives, among other things), drugs – recreational and otherwise – and more personal topics, including his recent heart surgery.
You have no excuse for missing this! Other HBO playdates: Dec. 6 (12:20 a.m.), 9 (10:00 p.m., 3:10 a.m.), 15 (10:30 p.m.), 17 (3:05 a.m.), 19 (10:15 p.m.), 21 (11:35 p.m.), 23 (11:45 p.m.) and 29 (2:20 a.m.)
