Robin Williams Surprised Small Audience With Impromptu Stand Up Act

February 11, 2010 Elijah Wood, Robin Williams

Multi-award winning actor and comic Robin Williams may have earned millions at the box office, but that didn't stop him from giving a small audience, who had paid just $10 each, a spontaneous stand-up act on Tuesday. The 58-year-old star amazed 200 viewers with a surprise performance in a small comedy club in Sydney, Australia.

According to news.com.au, Williams and Elijah Wood were in town to record their parts in the upcoming animated film "Happy Feet II" with Australian comedian Gary Eck, who is co-writing and co-directing the project.

When finished the session, the actors asked Eck to join them for dinner, but Eck refused because he had a gig. Williams and Wood then apparently invited themselves and three other L.A.-based voice actors to the Australian comic's show at the Sugarmill bar's new Gagging For It comedy night, on the strict proviso that Williams remain anonymous.

What followed was "the best night of comedy" Eck has ever experienced, he told Confidential. When Williams' presence was discovered in the room, he was goaded to perform a 30-minute, unplanned show.

After his act, the audience, who paid just $10 each, gave him a standing ovation.
