    My only concern in life, pretty soon I'm gonna run out of the old Tonight Show with Johnny C on YT? Jimmy Fallon? No thanks. Maybe I'll get lucky and accidentally hit my head on some concrete wall severe enough and develop amnesia, then I'll forget I've been watching all these classic Carson show and start over :).

    Such a comic genius and made so many people laugh out loud but we never knew the demons that lived within his heart.
    Thank goodness he will never die as we have all these great films to remember him by. He'll always be one of my favorites and I bet they are laughing their asses off in heaven. RIP Mr. Williams~!!!

    johnny carson was a freemason and robin did a freemason handshake with him, so sadly he was one too.

    the WORLD ACCORDING TO GARP is an excellent movie. A drama, comedy and horror all in one with amazing performances, an intelligent plot.

    6:02 Johnny was *really fast* with that cigarette. Think he was a chain smoker.

    As with David Letterman and other talk show hosts, Johnny Carson loved having him on the show, because THEN Johnny didn't have to do any work. Robin Williams was a genius. An amazing, other worldly talent.

    Poor Robin. So gifted, so funny, so manic, so intelligent, so entertaining, so generous, so unstoppable, so kind, and then, SO ILL. Rest in Love, Robin. You were one of the good ones. And SO unforgettable. xo


    He was Elaborately fantastic!

    ...As he got older I could see the sadness in his eyes between the jokes and was hoping that he wouldnt do what he actually seemed to have done.

      Yes your right, so sad no one has a sense of humor anymore, everyone now is analytical of everything said, can't just relax and enjoy a good laugh. I absolutely adore Robin and his genius, I pray he found the peace he so desperately deserved. The world misses him!! ❤️️❤️️

    the need to constantly feel you had to be funny was obviously too much pressure. I wish he could have "settled down" and quit working 24/7. If he learned to just relax, he may still be here.

    Robin back in his drug fueled days. He was hysterical, but so fast with a line half of them slipped by. And all the San Fran stuff would have been verboten these days. A shame.

      ​@gerard1657​, that's my _whole point!_ Most of the time you _can't see it!_ So don't dismiss the possibility just because someone always appears upbeat and chipper!

      Something tells me there's more to Hollyweird and the culture controllers in the entertainment industry overall.... Not sure why... Perhaps it's the way so many keep dying young.. Or how so many have parents from a senior level of military central intelligence.. But hey ho, I'm sure it's all coincidence!

    He likened Margaret Thatcher to Julia Child, foreshadowing Meryl Streep playing both of these roles (Julie & Julia in 2009, and The Iron Lady in 2011).

    I call that "Impossible Comedy",
    it's magical like Beethoven's 5th symphony.
    Purely Magical.
    Nobody can recreate or do anything that great, except Williams or Beethoven.
