Robin Williams goes on tour for first time in six years

August 13, 2008  |  1:33pm
We'll forgive Robin Williams that wacky little foray into RV gags and admit that getting back on the road to perform stand-up is pretty cool. For Williams, it's been about six years, which we hope means plenty of brand-new jokes.

“It’s an interesting time, as they say,” Williams told USA Today. “I’ll talk about everything that’s going on. The election. The choices. What are we going to do?”
The tour is called Weapons of Self-Destruction, which we hope is strictly retrospective.
