Have you ever laughed so hard your face hurt? Well take that glorious pain and hold it for two hours. That was what a packed Smith Center Arena endured last weekend while Robin Williams took the stage during Colonials’ weekend.
“I know what Blue is, but what the fuck is buff? The color of Washington’s teeth?” he asked throwing the crowd into giggle fits.
The comedian said GW was a receptive audience.
"I'm having a lot of fun playing with my material for this crowd," Williams said in an interview with The Hatchet. "I'm learning more about the school. There's more to it than buff and the hippo."
While preparing for his weekend routine, he must have snuck into the Gelman Starbucks as he described the cliché scenario in perfect detail. “Five girls are sitting around the table feverishly jamming away at their crackberries in silence. Then one looks up at the other and giggles ‘I know’ before returning to her text.”
Acknowledging the parents, “who were checking up to see what their $52,000 is going towards,” he went on to steal the campus’ Foggy Bottom location as a “gentle way to describe the current status of the economy.
Skipping through topics from Palin to porn, Williams hit the mark and held it while we in the audience held our gut and grasped for air between punch-lines.
Noting the difference between Palin and Cheney, “when Palin shoots you, you stay down.”
But a deeper purpose was not lost on the “future interns of America,” as he encouraged the audience to vote on November 4th.
