EDITORS’ NOTES

During this 1986 show at New York City's Metropolitan Opera House, Robin Williams erupts with the comedic frisson that initially earned him his career. He packs more jokes into a single bit than most comedians fit in an entire set (see "Reagan," in which he impersonates both the 40th president and his entire cabinet). Awarded a GRAMMY® in 1988 for Best Comedy Performance, A Night at the Met was released just prior to Good Morning Vietnam, which vaulted the comedian to a new level of movie stardom.
