    Robin has/had/has-had a mind that Stephen Hawking almost got in the vicinity of. Almost.

    When someone says it's "his finest interview", be prepared for it not to be. He seems more reliant on sketch material as opposed to just letting it fly.

    There were very few people who could make Johnny laugh the way Robin could.

    Instead of a run-on sentence Robin Williams invented run-on comedy, one continuous stream of commentary and jokes

    Is there any serious interviews,with him,hes so energetic its strange for how up he was,he was down at the end,very funny man

  • Cassadanielle Picasso

    At @3:21...In this times, that I am aware of what's happening - most around the globe...especially about... buckingham palace and all those "saintly" appearance of the royals...the "Bubba" is Robin's knowledge of inside palace "PEDOPHILIA"...especially when Robin showed holding his butt in pain...
    This could be the reason why...Robin.....gone...his inside information...knowing it all...
    Hollywood and the royals...etc...

  • Ulrich Gerhard Osterloh

    it's good but that tape they play, or believed they had to play, every other second with a very loud and noisy cheerful crowd on it, is like a torture.. doesn't even sound realistic

    • Ulrich Gerhard Osterloh
      Ulrich Gerhard Osterloh Month ago

      okay.. i am sure much of the laughter is indeed real.. but honestly, if you listen carefully at least in some places in this video,, the laughter comes on far too sudden and ends too abruptly... in my opinion anyway.. if you want my honest opinion, i find most of Robin Williams' jokes here painfully unfunny and can understand they "topped up" the laugher using taped laughter. It is understandable because otherwise, Williams would have come across less the funny man that he was considered to be. I dont find him funny. It makes me cringe to watch his "comedy", although i like some of his acting in movies.

      I hear what your saying but I was in the audience for about 25 of those Carson shows--not this one. There were several hundred people laughing and the audience was heavily miked. Sometimes Carson's monologue died, or something wasn't working--you could tell this later when you watched it on TV that he wasn't getting anything. They taped at 5:30pm to 6:30pm. There were bits that were pre-taped and included in the show, but the live audience reacted to those pre-taped bits--not pre-recorded laughter. The show was transmitted to the East Coast, then back to the West Coast.
      It played from 11:30pm to 1am for most of it's run. Then Carson renegotiated his contract and the show was cut to an hour--11:30pm to 12:30am. I forget when it became 11:35pm to 12:35am. Anyway, I did hear that added can laughter on some of the other talk shows back then--Mike Douglas, Merv Griffin--they all did it but they were not broadcasters like Carson was--and later Letterman. I do think Leno spiked his laughter all the time and added the band laughing at his jokes when they weren't funny--Carson's band never laughed in order to punch up the laughter, partially because Carson was the master at getting laughs when jokes bombed. It's also very tacky when a joke doesn't work and the band starts laughing hysterically--Mad TV did parodies of Leno and the band fake laughing.

    • Ulrich Gerhard Osterloh
      Ulrich Gerhard Osterloh Month ago

      the show was recorded around 5 pm in front of a live audience and broadcast after 11pm. Plenty of time to "improve" the laughter a little bit, so all of WIlliams' jokes appear funnier than they are...There is some real audience laughter on it of course but many times throughout the interview you can hear the artificial laughter added on top of it, it is far too strong in most places and beginning and ending too abruptly. It is just that people in the States are too used to this artificial laughter added on top of the real laughter, so you think it is real, but it is way too intense to be real, it is taped and i heard exactly the same laughter on various shows, it must be some kind of standard laughter tape. As I said, there is some real laughter there as well, it is not all taped of course.

    I think whenever Robin Williams was on the Carson show. He was always on there the longest of any guest that was on that night. And you see why. He was a master of his craft. There will never be another Robin Williams.

    A lot of this was humor based on what was happening at that time that some may not get if they’re not old enough to remember events of ‘87; the stock market crash, corrupt televangelists Jim and Tammi Faye Bakker, etc... but Robin is on fire here as usual. I don’t know which is funnier... watching Robin, or watching Johnny’s reactions to his rapid fire humor. RIP to Robin, Johnny and Ed. Late night tv was never quite the same after Johnny retired.

    They were hating on Michael Jackson though. Jokes are jokes, but I notice how it becomes a double standard when he is the topic of conversation. As if Robin himself wasn't different...

    • wm young

      +JDines Lol, are you mad that I called out hypocrisy? Even jokes can exhibit hypocrisy no matter how funny they are to someone else. Jokes can also be mean spirited and unfunny. And lastly, jokes are not rocket science. There's no mystery as to how they "work". Since they often reflect the social climate of the time and the reflective mentality of the people, observation is warranted, whether you agree with my assessment or not. Besides, I don't care what you think. My observation belongs to me.

    At the time I didn't realize the level of genius this man was... Epic
    Even at 50 years old I struggle with depression too. What I have found is those you think are your friends become the first to abandon you. Mostly because they don't understand your confusion. I guess that is my excuse for them anyway. Every single day is a battle. What a tragic death. One of the great minds in showbiz. RIP RW

    He enjoyed the 'Green Room' before this - right?
    My favorite performance was in "The Fisher King" - genuine pathos that only he could do.
    Controversial I know but better actor than comic for me - across a number of films.
