Friday To-Do: Robin Williams



8 p.m., Verizon Arena. $46.75-$86.75.

Just six months after open-heart surgery, Robin Williams is back on the grind, making up dates he was forced to postpone in spring. If surgery has slowed him, he's hiding it well. If anything, it's armed him with new material. On a typically manic late-night appearance on a recent “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” he managed to tie cocaine, baboon masturbation, a pig's nose for truffles, a stripper named Tiny Vagina and Jermaine Jackson's son Jermajesty in, at least tangentially, with his heart surgery. And so it's likely to go at our stop on the “Weapons of Self-Destruction Tour,” which culminates, likely on Broadway, with an HBO taping. Expect 90 minutes that mixes locally tailored bits (Williams, or at least his team, does advance prep work) with topical humor. Tickets from the show scheduled for April will, of course, be honored.
