It's hard to imagine Robin Williams sitting still for very long, but the fast-talking comedian will give it a try when he brings "An Evening of Sit Down with Robin Williams & David Steinberg" to Clearwater in February.

The tour, which comes to Ruth Eckerd Hall on Feb. 1, is billed as a comical onstage conversation between the Oscar-winning Williams and his old friend, Canadian comedian David Steinberg.

It's not clear what they'll be talking about exactly, but Williams' long career in TV, movies and standup comedy, as well as his three marriages and struggles with substance abuse, would seem to provide plenty of material.

Tickets to the show, priced from $59 to $125, go on sale at noon Saturday through the Ruth Eckerd Hall ticket office and RuthEckerdHall.com.

Williams and Steinberg will also appear at the Bob Carr Performing Arts Center in Orlando on Jan. 30.
