The tour, which began in late September, is his first U.S. stand-up comedy tour in six years. The high-energy show already has received overwhelmingly positive reviews, and highlights Williams’ trademark free associations and riffs on social and political absurdities.

Williams last toured in 2002 when he returned to the stand-up scene after a 16-year hiatus. The sold-out tour earned the distinction of being one of the highest-grossing comedy tours in history and culminated in a final performance filmed by HBO and broadcast live from New York City. The resulting July 2002 HBO broadcast, “Robin Williams: Live on Broadway,” was nominated for five Emmy awards.

Williams has more than 40 industry honors to his credit, including two Emmy awards, six Golden Globe awards including the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Award, four Grammy awards and an Oscar.

In addition to his tour, Williams soon will be seen starring in the Disney comedy Old Dogs opposite John Travolta and will reprise his role as Teddy Roosevelt in the sequel Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian.

Ticket prices range from $58 to $98, plus applicable service charges. The Arlington Theatre is at 1317 State St. in Santa Barbara. Call 805.963.4408.

Tickets are available at all TicketMaster outlets, including F.Y.E., Macy’s, Ritmo Latino and the Arlington Theatre Box Office.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.
