Comic Robin Williams on the Klezmatics

This caught my eye from the current pr piece from Piranha Records, the label that distributes the Klezmatics (along with Emil Zrihan and a host of other amazing artists) in Europe:

*Piranha HISTORY - How Robin Williams worshipped the Klezmatics* It was when The Klezmatics where playing a weekly gay/Jewish comedy & music night in a club in NY, one night, *Hollywood actor*** Robin Williams showed up unannounced while The Klezmatics were playing. When they finished he hit the stage for some improvised stand-up, riffing on a gay/Jewish theme for 20 minutes. The first thing that came out of his mouth is now part of the Klezmatics legend: "With music like this, if you don´t see God, you´re fucking blind."
