Trivia

The whole thing where the French accused Lance Armstrong of being on performance enhancing drugs turned out to be true. While yes, he was on chemotherapy at one point in the mid-1990s to combat stage-3 testicular cancer, Armstrong finally confessed in 2012 he had been doping since 1995. He would be stripped of his seven Tour de France victories and all other achievements dating all the way back to 1998, lose $75 million in endorsements, and banned for life from participating in the sport and any other sport that follows the World Anti-Doping Code.

Alternate Versions

A number of jokes originally broadcast on HBO were cut on the DVD, presumably for music rights:
  • Robin makes reference to the theater, the Broadway Theater, and does imitations of Ethel Merman singing "Baby Got Back" and Carol Channing singing "One of Us".
  • During the airport security routine, a "West Side Story" joke was cut.
  • When referencing Dick Cheney, Robin sings "Me and My Shadow Government".

Robin's Best
11 January 2004 | by caspian1978See all my reviews

20 years ago, Robin Williams had his best live stand-up on Broadway. 20 years later, Robin returns (live) to give an even better performance and equally funny. 52 years old and not slowing down for a second, Robin Williams is non-stop for almost 2 hours as he tackles terrorism, sex, drugs, family, golf, drinking, cats, the gay mafia, and everything else you can think of. Less poetic as his first stand up show 20 years before, but Live on Broadway (2002) is one of the best stand up shows of the year, by far!
