You may know him as the teacher you always wished you had in The Dead Poet’s Society, or the manly housekeeper in Mrs. Doubtfire. And now you’ve got the chance to see him as himself. The Academy and Grammy Award-winning performer Robin Williams will be at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center on Fri. Jan. 25 for An Evening of Sit Down with Robin Williams as part of a 65-city tour.

Williams will be appearing along with Canadian comedian and director David Steinberg, who’s best known for directing episodes of TV shows like Seinfeld, Friends, Mad About You, and Curb Your Enthusiasm. In true sit-down fashion, rather than performing his usual stand-up routine, Williams will respond to a series of offbeat questions posed to him by Steinberg. Steinberg will ask Williams about his political views, his life in show biz, and his film career, plus plenty of other unpredictable topics.
