More on Robin Williams

I’m still bumming that Robin Williams has died. Salon is putting together several great articles on Robin (here, here, here and here).

I remember hearing that Steven Spielberg became very depressed while making Schindler’s List. He and Robin Williams became friends a couple of years earlier while filming Hook. Robin Williams sustained Steven Spielberg during the darkest days while filming that beautiful yet gutwrenching Holocaust drama.

During my lifetime, there have only been a few comedians that I can say were fall-on-the-floor funny – Bill Cosby, Richard Pryor and Robin Williams. I love to laugh. I love to laugh so hard your cheeks hurt.

Robin Williams on Obama and Bush (Update)

I posted this several years ago. I updated it today.

The greatness of Robin Williams should not be understated. Back when cable was new, a friend and I, being in college, were slightly inebriated and we watched Robin Williams’ HBO special, Comedy Faster Than the Speed of Thought. We almost blew out double hernias laughing so hard. It was painful. Unlike some other comedians, Robin Williams has never lost the ability to do standup. He has this stream of consciousness that is simply amazing to watch. Here he is on some show that I’ve never heard of, introduced by one of my favorite comedic actors John Cleese of Monty Python fame.

One of the great lines from this stand up is, “Where did they get Sarah Palin? Did Ronald Reagan and Posh Spice have a child?”

Update: Robin Williams died today. I have had a special relationship with Robin Williams since the early 1980s. There was no one who was funnier. I loved his movies. I loved his spirit. I’ll miss him.

RSU – Moderates

Red State Update has always been very good (and funny) pointing out the craziness of politics especially the far right. Today, they realize that they are moderate in their beliefs. It is very funny. Enjoy.
