Robin Williams on fatherhood

  • Published on Oct 16, 2016
  • Having just received a third child, I wanted to share this classic 1986 stand-up routine from Robin Williams that, despite being 30 years old, is just as relevant today to any parent or parent-to-be.

      Aydemir ._. We don’t think that. It’s a Nasty ice cream. Now Baskin Robbins solves some problems and what it doesn’t solve, Krispy Kreme will.

    Now that I think about it, humans really shouldn't have stayed around this long. Despite how hard we labor to change the world instead of letting it change us over millennia, we've still yet to find a way to make pregnancy, labor, and birth not terrifying.

    Only Robin Williams could do comedy like this. If any other comedian does anything else like this it's just akward and cringy.

    Those were the good 'ol days of the early years of the comedy stand-up,Robin Williams, back then when he had been young and alive. I don't think Mr. WIlliams ever had been so famous before he became famous. And to popular in America, before he actually became better than medicore. It had been SO sad of why he had died....when he had taken his own life. It had been so ironic,sad,BUT had been a happy experience for him entertain his own audience - who really & truly had liked him as a person....a LOT! 😁 The older he got,the more realistic he had became. The more bullshit reality had taught him to simply laugh at the world,the more effective Robin Williams became. God is glad to have him in heaven,with Rodney Dangerfield. Even though God and Jesus Christ had jokingly told him that "Heaven's full." And Rodney Dangerfield's like "Whadda mean, heaven's full?" 😋👍LOL!

  • S3nate Plays - Battlefront

    You know, I really don't laugh at much. But I will laugh at Robin Williams.

    Yes, this was intended to be funny and yes it is stand up, but he has a deeper meaning to this: son's need their fathers throughout their life. To guide them. To teach them. And maybe one day that'll all go away and the dreams father had were untrue. That doesn't matter though. Essentially, don't let your life pass you by and take advantage of every moment. Cause it's short....... and so is the time with your father.
