Robin Williams was also on the list of performers, Orny was surprised to see Robin in the green room, awestruck, he asked Robin if he wants to go on the stage before him. Robin said that he would prefer to go after him. Orny was performing well and the audience was digging it, Orny could hear Robin laughing in the background, that was very satisfying to have an Oscar-winning popular comedian to be enjoying the jokes. Orny was stripping buttons in his shirt one by one, just enough not to show the little fat belly, then out of a sudden Robin jumped on to the stage with just his boxers, the audience burst into laughter seeing that.
