Review:

Sharper and deeper than Robin Williams's previous road material, Live on Broadway is a mature comedian's view of all things to do with power, prejudice, and paranoia in the 21st century. On the anthrax scare of 2001: "The Senate cleared out of their building but told the rest of us, 'Get on with your normal lives!'" On his solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict over Jerusalem: "Time share!" On the pitfalls of America's deepening alliance with Britain: "The House of Commons is like Congress with a two-drink minimum." A viewer may have to slog through Williams's tedious breast fetishism, but patience is quickly rewarded with bitchy takes on Martha Stewart facing prison, solid satire about French existentialist judges at the Olympics, and subversive op-eds about the Bush administration's inability to clarify terrorist threats to the public ("Has the CIA become the Central Intuitive Agency?"). --Tom Keogh

From the Back Cover:

He shifts from Shakespeare to shtick without missing a beat, conjuring up absurdities faster than most people can think. Robin Williams-the Academy Award winning actor/writer/comedian/free spirit who happens to be one of the most gifted and revered performers of our time-stars in this exclusive CMV Home Video that promises to be the stand-up DVD of the year. Filmed live from New York City's Broadway Theater, Williams performance is the culmination of his sold-out, 26-show U.S. tour, and features his takes on any and every topic, including sex, drugs, rock'-n'-roll, religion, politics...and anything else that might pop into his impossibly fertile mind!
