BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Comedian Robin Williams is returning to the road to resume his "Weapons of Self-Destruction" comedy tour after postponing several dates in March to undergo heart surgery. "Weapons" launched in September 2008. Tickets previously purchased to the postponed March 26 show will be honored for the rescheduled engagement.
"This little break has given me more energy than ever," said Williams. "Plus it's wonderful to have a cow valve . . . If you don't mind the grazing, it's quite invigorating."
Williams has more than 40 industry honors to his credit, including four Academy Award nominations and one win, two Emmy awards, four Grammys and six Golden Globes (including the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Award). In addition to the "Weapons of Self-Destruction" tour, Williams can be seen in Twentieth Century Fox Films' Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, scheduled for release May 22, in which he reprises his role as "Teddy Roosevelt." His next project, the Disney comedy Old Dogs (co-starring John Travolta), is scheduled for a Thanksgiving release.
