Album Review

Weapons of Self Destruction was originally planned as Robin Williams' last great jab at the Bush Jr. administration, but the comedian’s health issues — including open-heart surgery to replace his aortic valve — delayed the 2008 show until late 2009. As such, Williams’ first standup effort in six years is missing that little bit of purpose that helps tie his everywhere-at-once sets together, but it’s still hilarious and delivered at a breakneck speed. After Bush, the comedian’s own health (“Who knew the way to a man’s heart was through his groin”) plus his strong dislike of Sarah Palin (“How did they find her? Did Ronald Reagan have a kid with Vanna White and drop it off in Alaska?”) are the hot topics, with technology, the economy, and the no-hitter baseball game Doc Ellis pitched on LSD filling up most of the rest of the set. That’s “most” because, as usual, Williams' hyperkinetic nature means that a hundred or so unfinished ideas pop up and vanish just as quickly, just so he can drop gems like “A Tibetan terrorist? That’s like an Amish hacker.” This fast, scatterbrained way is the dividing line between his detractors and his fans, but the former should know that there’s humility here — including an apology for the movie Bicentennial Man — that makes the man more charming than ever. The latter will be pleased that after 35 years in the standup business he literally shows no signs of slowing down.

Customer Reviews

Two schools of thought.

Ok, first off, I have been a life long Robin Williams fan since the Happy Days/Mork and Mindy part of his career and was excited to see an album of new material from him. I read all of the previous reviews and then went ahead and dropped my $11. All of the previous reviews fall into either the love it or hate it catagory. After listening to the album myself, I wonder if those who hated it are not very familiar with Robin as a person. His personal politics are very liberal and progressive, so you shouldn't be surprised by his republican bashing. If you want your conservitive ego stroked, I would suggest Dennis Miller might be a better choice, he may be the only conservitive comic of any note out there right now (Sarah Palins Tonight Show apperence might be a good start for her to help fill that niche market). The people that liked it seem to share Robin's political views and I count myself among those. For the album itself, it was overall a good effort but not what I would consider his best material. I think his 1995 Met concert is one of the greatest comic albums of all time. This album starts off rough, but by half way through, we start to see flashes of a younger Robin at his comic best. I believe this album is worth the investment for any serious Robin Williams fan. Conservitives, don't spend the money, it will only make you mad.


Wow it's hilarious great stuff


I saw Robin Williams perform this show in Portland and he was so funny! Be prepared for the most crass, profane and insanely hysterical 90 minutes of your life! He is brilliant!
