Robin Williams: Still Really Popular

By Martin Cizmar

So, not only is cartoonish comedian and impressionist Robin Williams still popular enough to sell out Dodge Theatre once, apparently the old goat is too popular for a single show in Phoenix.

"Due to the overwhelming demand to see the hysterical standup of Robin Williams, a second night of comedy at Dodge Theatre has been added on Saturday, February 14," says an announcement from the promoter, LiveNation. "The multi-faceted performer can also be seen performing his lively standup act on Friday, February 13."

Tickets for the Feb. 14 "Weapons of Self Destruction" show go on sale this coming Monday at rates of $95, $75, and $50. Seems kinda steep but, really, what could be more romantic than Robin Williams on Valentine's Day?
