Robin William’s new show is called “Weapons of Self Destruction” and was just as hilarious as his “Robin William’s Live” video published in 2000. My son (JT) and I happily sat 3 rows back, in the Upper Darby Tower Theatre last week, and remained bug eyed to his 2 hour show, as we burst with tears of laughter! Robin is one of our (JT and I) favorite comedian of all time!
After the show and during our meeting with Robin, JT asked Robin if he could recite a line from Mrs Doubtfire (one of his favorite RW movies) and as he signed his photo, he said (in Mrs Doubtfire’s voice) “She lives within me my dear!”
I designed a caricature for Robin and surprised him with it and he said “Holy Sh*t! Look at that!”
I asked him to sign my matte board and he said “This is strange!” then wrote that same quote on my board and signed it.
I happen to have signed caricatures from Penn & Teller and Copperfield (even Rick Springfield, remember him?) but they are locked up in my photo albums and are put away as my old crappy work. 😀
A few years ago, during a gig at the Little League World Series, I also was fortunate enough to have drawn Kevin Costner’s family, while Costner and his family watched the ball game (Costner is a huge Little League supporter and often attends the games).
