Robin Williams Hosts "In The Caribbean: Weapons Of Self Destruction

Miami -- HBO Latin America announced that next Sunday, March 7th it will broadcast Weapons of Self Destruction, the fifth HBO special from acclaimed actor, writer, comedian and Academy Award Winner Robin Williams, in the Caribbean.

"It is an honor for HBO to be able to bring its subscribers different, fun and high quality programming. Weapons of Self Destruction is not only a comedy special, but is also a production that will get viewers to think about themselves in different ways and with very controversial themes," declared Gustavo Grossman, VP and General Manager of HBO Networks.

 

In Weapons of Self Destruction, Robin Williams shows off his acting ability and in a sincerely humorous and sometimes dark way, mocks the most dramatic events in his life.  During the special, he brings controversial themes to the table such as his past drug addictions, his use of Viagra and his recent heart surgery, which he says has converted him into a new Robin Williams, Version 2.0.

 

In this 90 minute long monologue, Williams speaks about some well-known public figures such as President Barack Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton and other world famous personalities. Throughout this performance, the entertainer also delights his audience with the vocal impressions and imitations that have become the trademark of his 20+ year long career.

 

Among the many themes Williams touches on in his monologue, he speaks about marriage being like a tornado and like a bank account where you cannot make any transactions in other accounts.  He also speaks about how when he was younger people would tell him that drugs could kill him, but today, at 58 years old, his doctor tells him that he needs drugs to be able to live.

 

Robin Williams, winner of three Golden Globe Awards, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, and three Grammy awards for his previous monologues, returns after a successful 26 U.S. city tour, withWeapons of Self Destruction, filmed live at Washington's iconic DAR Constitution Hall.
