David Letterman, Robin Williams, Arsenio Hall, Paul Rodriguez, Louie Anderson, Garry Shandling, Richard Pryor—in all, 20 comics stand up for a tribute to the L.A. comedy club where they earned early laughs. And they do it in just 90 minutes. So that gives each comic enough time for roughly 3.7 punch lines (or 37 for Robin Williams). The result: The good parts are good and the bad parts—every comedy show has them—are short.
