I swear I can hardly hear laughter without thinking of Robin Williams. There was a time it seemed he carried the entire comedy boom of the 80's on his shoulders...he was the benchmark for energy and hilarity that's for certain.

He had it all... characters, voices, inspired monologues, the ability to insanely improv and ride a stream of funny sensibilities that would jab at your funny bone until he'd clobber you with a punch line. The anticipation alone of what he might do next made his audience sit on the edge of their seats. His comedic pose was that of a gunfighter that you just knew was ready to draw his six shooter and kill you with rapid fire laughter.

He did so much for stand up comedy, his image alone drove the entertainment stock value of comedy clubs skyward and the power of laughter thru the roof. It made for opening a comedy night everywhere seem like a foregone conclusion.

As far as I'm concerned he was one of the creators of the comedy boom....actually I think he was the mushroom cloud of an exploding laughter revolution that was desperately needed at that time in our country's history. We were all ready to take time out, smile, giggle and enjoy... and Robin Williams was our beacon for just that. 

He gave so much from his heart that one day it began to give out. His life was saved by super medical science but unfortunately his personal super power was drained after the operation. His natural depression gave way to an extremely dark place, no modern medicines could relieve it or cure him. His artist spirit that drove him had vanished and I'm afraid it left him so very weak, lost and alone.

Let's give it up for Robin Williams folks, he was 1000% artist and he took us places we had never gone. I for one will be forever grateful to him for wearing the mask of the smile & remain inspired by his work.

Totally in agreement. He was bigger than life and nobody will ever match his wit, exuberance and exquisite timing.
