Robin Williams Gives Impromptu Show at Meltdown Comics
Robin Williams showed up to Meltdown Comics last night for an impromptu set that lasted about an hour.
Reportedly, the comedian didn't give any warning that he was coming to the weekly NerdMelt comedy show, according to TMZ. But apparently, he killed it (and just look at the faces in the front row in this picture).
The comic who followed Williams' long set took it in stride:
Crazy thank you to everyone who came to @meltdown_show, and to my opener, Robin Williams— Megan Amram (@meganamram) May 3, 2012
It sounds like this wasn't Williams' first trip to Meltdown. Just a few nights ago his daughter tweeted about a recent visit with her dad:
