Robin Williams

One of the brightest lights in the human family went out last week. Robin Williams was one of a kind. A human being with a mental energy and lightning speed creativity that was remarkable and entirely unique. The only other person I ever saw who had that brand of instant insanely fun improvisational humor was Jonathan Winters, a comedian who preceded Robin Williams by a few decades.

Anyway, I mourn the loss of Robin Williams.  He was an enormous talent. Moreover, he appeared to be a genuinely decent and compassionate human being,  despite the demons that seemed to torment his soul.  I hope he is at peace now.

Here is a link to the hysterically fun interview Robin Williams did with James Lipton, host of Inside the Actors Studio    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGhfxKUH80M
