Robin Williams has been found dead in apparent suicide today.
Truly one of my childhood heroes. Rest in peace Mork.
Sorry, I made a cuppa and forgot to refresh before postiing.
That's so, so sad...

You hear the term "comedy genius" bandied about, but you'd find his picture next to the dictionary definition.

It`s Grand To Be Daft
Devastated is the word. And apart from being a comedy genius, he was also a brilliant dramatic actor.
I never missed Mork and Mindy as a teenager. Loved it to the point of obsession.
Since hearing of his death I have sifted through my DVD collection to see how many movies I have that star him or feature him: eleven, being the following:
Good Morning Vietnam, Dead Poets Society, Awakenings, Good Will Hunting, Jakob the Liar, The Bicentenial Man, A.I. Artificial Intelligence, One Hour Photo, Insomnia, Night at the Museum 1 & 2.
That's quite a list. I really will miss him!
His chat show appearances were always brilliantly anarchic, loved Mork and Mindy and enjoyed his movies (finally saw Jumanji recently). Very sad. :/

I was following this live last night on 5Live as it broke about midnight and didn't really feel like adding to the thread for obvious reasons.
The CV speaks for itself and there's a number of his films I've still to catch up with but of the man himself...
Yes I've seem him interviewed a number of times but I've never seen him give an interview. What I've seen is a stand up performance given to often just the one reporter. You didn't interview him you lit the touch paper and stood back.
I'm guessing that from way back that was his way of dealing with 'it' people can't ask you daft questions if you don't breath in.
In so many ways we gained from his pain.
Whatever your belief system either the pain is now over or he's found some kind of peace in a different plane somewhere.
To the Stand up who never sat down. Farewell and thank you

I used to be with it, but then they changed what `it` was.
Now, what I`m with isn`t it, and what`s `it` seems weird and scary
