    If it's even half as funny as the ads are on HBO, it should be absolutly killer! [​IMG]
    BTW, how long has it been since he's done a stand up special? It's gotta be at least 20 years right?

    I think Maxim said it best: give the guy some cocaine.

    I saw his stand up act live a couple of months ago in Detroit. He was hilarious.

    It's time to go to somebody's house who has HBO. [​IMG]
    I wanted to see his stand up act when he was in Las Vegas back in April, but I didn't have enough money and nobody wanted to go with me. [​IMG]

    He's too hyper... but I'll check it out anyway, I've only seen him on talkshows and old stand-up performances (outside the movies) and I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. [​IMG]

    Back in 97 when I was living in NYC I used to go to a little stand-up place in the Upper West Side. Williams basically just walked off the street and asked to perform. They bumped the next guy and we were givin an impromptu standup performance. It was hilarious.
    I just wish I got HBO. [​IMG]

    If he's only half as funny as he was when he did his stand-up here (a few months back), it will be a great show!

    Saw him 3 months ago in Philly. Tons of energy! Had the whole audience falling out of their chairs [​IMG]
    Count me in for the show. I just hope has a new act. It would kind of suck if he did the same act a couple of months ago.

    I'm looking forward to it. I told my TiVo to record it.

    Greg, 3 months isn't a long time, so I'd be surprised if this was much different from what you saw. Let us know what was different.

    I wasn't aware this was coming. I can't wait. His stand up usually has me on my butt laughing.
