Default So Long Mork...

Really sorry to hear how you checked out man but we get it. I didn't like your stand up stuff after you got sober but I enjoyed many of your films and you entertained multiple generations of adults and children. You will be missed.

His stand-up is some of the most painfully hilarious work I've ever seen. He will be missed enormously.

So sad to hear this yesterday.

I feel like I lost a huge part of my childhood.

RIP, Robin.

Amazingly talented entertainer. One of very few actors who was equally comfortable in comedic and dramatic roles. His stand-up work in the 80s was leading edge.

Yep this was a sad shocker. What a shining light, and hilarious refreshingly genuine person in the entertainment world.

Very upsetting news.

You would think all the money, fame, a wife + kids would be enough to keep you going. He probably battled with the idea of suicide for a long time.

You can still have great sucess,money,fame ,family...and still battle depression..Robins close personal friend and mentor,the great Jonathan Winters,another comic genius,also battled depression.as did lots of famous people in history.

There was an interview Robin did on the Actors Studio TV series,that was the funniest I'd ever seen him.,and..total add lib.If you're a Robin Williams fan it's a must see,I think it's on youtube.

I'm still reeling from this as I'm a huge fan of his work,both in comedy( I think his stand up was hysterical) and in his more dramatic roles.He was going to start work on a new Mrs. Doubtfire movie,next year.He was also a Julliard alumnus.

Go easy man,the demons will be silent now....nanoo nanoo,:(
