      What I found so remarkable about him was how fast he was, your face hurt. RIP Mork. MS

        I think he had a place in Vancouver on Point Grey Road (like Malibu for the Americuns amongst us). Friends of my son have a bike shop in the area and one day he came in to buy a bike and proceeded to launch into one of his comedy routines with very little provocation. One of a kind......

          Farewell to Mime Jerry. Look it up; a small role, but one of his more memorable.

          Which is right up there with Popeye, a movie I used to recommend, until too many people said "WTH? that was one of the worst things I've ever seen!" But Robin Williams sure did nail that role as Popeye.

          First time I heard about Williams was on the local news, after he won the annual SF comedy competition. They showed a bit of his routine, and I remember thinking "wow, that's different!" I even saw his famously manic performances live a few times.

          Very sad news. RIP and all that.

            RIP, Robin. I had the privilege to see him live a few years ago. My favorite bit was his (apparently impromptu) narration of the Three Mile Island meltdown, in full Shakespearian voice. The there were the times he was on with Carson....... True genius.
            It's turns! Of course it's worth the hike!

              he was so alive and self aware in standup - i think the 3 mile island bit was something he has done for years

              edited to add from jimmy kimmel - if you are sad, reach out or something to that affect

              RIP - what sad days
