Has it really been thirty years since a space alien with a propensity for suspenders made a nation laugh simply by stating he was "Mork from Ork?" He may not wear those trademark suspenders and his hair may not be as thick and frizzy as it once was, but Robin Williams has put together a tour starting in Minneapolis on September 25 and running through October 29 in Philadelphia. Cities include Chicago, Milwaukee, Detroit, Cleveland, Nashville, Atlantic City, Columbus, Richmond, Uncasville and Baltimore, with many tickets going on sale in mid-August. So look at the schedule, pick your date, and get ready to laugh your butt off.
