Robin Williams brings laughs to Ruth Eckerd Hall

Join Robin Williams for an evening of laughs at Ruth Eckerd Hall Friday, Feb. 1, 8 p.m.
CLEARWATER - Robin Williams will be appearing along with David Steinberg for an evening of laughs at Ruth Eckerd Hall Friday, Feb. 1, 8 p.m.

An Academy Award-winning actor and multiple Grammy Award-winning performer unparalleled in the scope of his imagination, Williams continues to add to his repertoire of indelible characters. Well known for his free-associative monologues and for pointing out life's absurdities through his astute social and political observations, Williams performed 90 shows in 65 cities before 300,000 fans over the course of his most recent stand-up tour.

Born in Chicago and raised in both Michigan and California, he trained at New York's Juilliard School under John Houseman. It was in 1978 when Williams first captured the attention of the world as "Mork from Ork" on the hit television series, Mork & Mindy, which ran on ABC for four seasons.

He made his cinematic debut in 1980 when he starred as the title character in Robert Altman's Popeye. His additional film credits include The World According to Garp, Moscow on the Hudson, Good Morning Vietnam, Dead Poets Society, The Fisher King, Hook, Mrs. Doubtfire, Jumanji, The Birdcage, Good Will Hunting, Patch Adams and Night at the Museum.

Williams takes great joy in supporting causes too numerous to identify. He toured the Middle East four times to help raise morale among the troops and is perhaps best known philanthropically for his affiliation with "Comic Relief," which was founded in 1986 as a nonprofit organization to help America's homeless. To date, the overall efforts of the "Comic Relief" organization have raised more than $50 million.

Recently, The New York Times called David Steinberg “a comic institution himself,” according to information at thedavidsteinberg.com. A legendary comedian of the 60s through the 80s, Steinberg is regarded as one of the best and most creative directors working in television today. He has directed numerous episodes of Friends, Seinfeld, Mad About You, Newhart and Designing Women, which he also executive produced.

More recently, Steinberg has directed for the hit series Weeds and is now in his eighth season directing Curb Your Enthusiasm. His work on Seinfeld, Mad About You and Curb Your Enthusiasm has earned him several DGA and Emmy awards and nominations.

Reserved tickets are priced at $125, $89 and $59 and available at the Ruth Eckerd Hall Ticket Office located at 1111 McMullen Booth Road in Clearwater, by calling 727-791-7400 and online at www.RuthEckerdHall.com.
