Wow...

I really didn't care for his humor, or stand up, but I loved movies he was in.  He was an actor that really conveyed emotion well.  I feel bad for his family.

Yeah, this seems surprising as any to me. Guy seemed to have an abundance of blessings in life, that's for sure.

Robin Williams was a brilliant comedian and a great actor.  His comedy came across as a total stream of consciousness thing, as if he had done too much blow and everything just came spilling out of him.  And it was only later on that I learned that he was Julliard trained.  His work with Jonathan Winters was beyond brilliant.

It seems that some of these guys who are so filled with joy and brilliance are also filled with equal amounts of darkness.  And it seems really sad that his peaks and valleys were so extreme.  Rest in peace.

There is no one that did comedy like Williams and Winters. They are both very missed.
