Remembering Robin Williams

Today, the world lost a unique talent, Robin Williams. Robin has been entertaining us for 5 decades. In the 70s, we first met Robin when he played the role of space visitor Mork, from Ork. Mork landed in Boulder Colorado on a mission to observe human life and report back to leader Orson. Each week, he was involved in hilarious high jinx, but always saw something in the human race that showed how worthwhile we were.

In the 80s and beyond, Robin starred in many popular movies including Good Morning Vietnam, Mrs. Doubtfire, The World According to Garp, Patch Adams, Awakenings, The Dead Poet Society and many more. Robin performed stand up comedy at break neck speed, improvising often and going off on extended joke sprees at the slightest trigger. He appeared often on late night shows leaving the host and audience gasping for air after laughing heartily.

Recently Robin Williams was a performer on American Idol Gives Back, a charity show with the American Idol judges. He played the role of the winner of Russian Idol, and did several minutes of jokes and improv. Today we present two representative videos from the long laugh filled career of Robin Williams. The first video is the pilot episode of Mork and Mindy, starring Robin Williams and Pam Dawber, with guest stars Henry Winkler as The Fonz and Penny Marshall as Laverne De Fasio. The second video is of Robin Williams on American Idol. Watch, laugh, and celebrate the life of Robin Williams.
