    Its a shame, Robin had depression issues for many years.  I thought this could happen but was hoping otherwise he was a funny guy.

    It got canceled after just the one season, but I really enjoyed the show he had last year, The Crazy Ones. I thought he and Sarah Michelle Gellar clicked, and it was good to see him with Pam Dawber one last time in the one episode.

    GOOD MORNING, VIETNAM was released in 1987. Please, Bill, explain why that was the right time? While I'm waiting for an answer I'll never get, RIP Mr. Williams. You were a comedic genius, who was always crediting Jonathan Winters as his inspiration.

    Very sad news. I liked him in Mork and Mindy. He was so manic and full of energy then. Always hate to lose a comedian. We need plenty of laughter in this tragic world.

    Robin Williams attended Redwood High School* in Larkspur, California, with Pete Carroll, coach of the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks.


    * other Redwood High graduates include former Kansas City Royal shortstop (and David Letterman favorite) Buddy Biancalana, as well as actor David Strathairn, who played pitcher Eddie Cicotte in the film Eight Men Out about the 1919 Black Sox scandal, and former MLB catcher and USC baseball coach Chad Kreuter, who once entered the stands in pursuit of a heckler at a Wrigley Field game I attended.

    He and Jonathan Winters could be the funniest duo ever when they were improvising with each other. Sometimes it would fall flat, but when it clicked, you would laugh so hard it would hurt.

    Williams lived about 20 minutes from my home. Great actor, good person too. He always seemed so full of life; hard to imagine he took his own life. RIP.

    WE ARE ALL JUST POPPYSEEDS IN THE BAKERY OF LIFE

    His first wife, Valerie, was from CT. Everyone who  met him said he was a great guy. Too bad they don't feel about themselves, what other do. Depression is a terrible thing. Can't ever escape the darkness

    It's not just the passing of a comedian.  He was truly an icon.  As much as I loved his comedy, I loved his dramatic acting even more...all the best "My captain, my captain".

    There are a lot of comedians that are funny because of impeccable timing and delivery.  Robin was one of those very rare few that could start with almost any situation and make it funny.  A prodigious talent.

    Such a tragedy! He will be sorely missed. 

     

     

    P.S.

        Nicely posted 67Redsox! By labeling the thread off topic you gave folks a choice whether to come here or not. Perfectly done sir.

    I am of the opinion that his Black on Broadway DVD is the best hour of standup I have ever seen.  I've watched it at least a dozen times.
