RIP Robin Williams

 

I have always felt that among performers, one of the toughest job is being a comic.  And Williams was one of the best.

Not surprisingly, I read some time ago that among comics he liked friend and mentor  Jonathan Winters.

What really gave me a respect for his craft was learning that much of his dialogue in Good Morning Vietnam wasn’t scripted – his creative mind was making it up as the scenes went along.

I hope he knew how much he could bring laughter in people.

The world needs more of it. Not less.

We’ll miss you Robin.

  1. His line about the highway beautification act meaning that LBJ’s daughters couldn’t drive down the road in a convertible always stuck with me.
    And greeting Prince Charles with “Chuck! Cam!” Prolly the Prince smiled about that one for a long time.
    Sigh.
