Stand-up Salute to Robin Williams

Sometimes we laugh to keep from crying. Stand-up comedy is a difficult artform. Although Robin Williams was much more than a comedic genius, we honor him with this selection of stand-up DVDs that might help lift our spirits and honor his loss.

Amazon Says: Bubbly, and yet sharply shrewd, comedian Kathy Griffin reflects on some of her personal experiences in Hollyweird. The stand-up comedian caught audiences' attention when she stole the show in Brooke Shields's TV sitcom SUDDENLY SUSAN. Here Griffin shares gossip on such celebrities as Gwyneth Paltrow, Renée Zellweger, and Sandra Bullock. Her stories revolve around odd, bizarre, or unpleasant encounters with superstars. For example, she reveals the name of the picky celebrity who refused to join her onstage at an awards show, and dishes about what really happened at Brooke Shields's wedding. Then there was the time Kathy found herself partying with Barbara Walters. This spitfire's take on celebrity life is uproarious and, without a doubt, courageous. less...

Amazon Says: This Live Magic Flute Is Delightfully, Lightly Led By Claudio Abbado. Even The Opera'S Darker Moments---The Scenes At The Temple, Etc.---Are Treated Nimbly; There'S No Hint Of Otto Klemperer'S Approach To Be Found Here. The Papageno Is Somewhat Faceless, And While The Queen Of The Night Sings Accurately And Delivers Her Recitatives With Real Drama, She, Too, Is Not Up To The Best On Discs. But The Recording Sports The Finest Tamino Since Stuart Burrows And Fritz Wunderlich In Christophe Strehl, A Tenor With Both Lyricism And Plangency Built In To His Voice. Dorothea Röschmann Is A Simply Glorious Pamina, Strong Of Voice But Sensitive And Girlish As Well, And René Pape'S Sarastro Sets A New Standard. The Three Ladies Don'T Always Sing On Key. Orchestra And Chorus Are Superb. Despite These Criticisms, The Three Leads And Abbado Are Enough To Make This A Fine Recommendation. --Robert Levine less...
