Mork Plays Bimbos


Experienced another first last night -- a Robin Williams live comedy show, at one of my favorite SF venues (Bimbo's). He was an absolute riot. The show was called "Working on New Material." He owned the stage for nearly two hours, covering a wide range of topics including the Olympics, politics, and every imaginable racial stereotype. He wrapped up by calling out to the audience, "What do you want to talk about?" What followed was improv at its best. He riffed about Burning Man, In and Out, and reality TV (he had never heard of this one!). Of course, there's always one sucker that comes in late, takes a seat near the front and gets called out by the performer. Last night, Robin berated some innocent guy,then said, "oh, it's OK...you already have your Google stock options!"
