Recorded and broadcast live from New York City's Broadway Theater at the culmination of his historic 2002 sold out tour, the Robin Williams "Live on Broadway" DVD finds the Oscar winning actor/writer/comedian returning after 16 years to his stand up roots to deliver what the Washington Post calls "... in its madcap way, a seminal cultural event."

"A report on the planet and a report from the planet for those watching from outer space," this DVD puts you front row at the comedy event - where "Williams pranced, flounced, minced, pounced, zigzagged, hip-hopped, whirled and twirled, talking non-stop about everything from surgically enhanced breasts to the great anthrax scare."

Live on Broadway captures the manic comedy energy of Robin Williams in full hurricane force. As seen first on HBO.

Trivia: At the beginning of this show, the announcer said "Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome, Robin Williams!" about five seconds too early. (He was supposed to say it so that the end of the announcement would butt right up against the first drum beat of the opening music.) It was the only show on the entire tour where that happened.
