I'm not completely shocked, it seemed to me that sometimes his goofiness hinted at some sort of mental instability.

I recall once seeing him at an interview and it seemed he couldn't really control himself. I wouldn't be surprised if he was bipolar or something similar.

He certainly was a talented guy, and made a lot of people laugh. Not a bad legacy.

His live on Broadway was a benchmark for stand-up and his Mrs. Doubtfire was a favorite of mine growing up, and I totally forgot Good Morning, Vietnam for a moment... RIP

One of the best actors period. Way beyond comedy. A great loss. Can't get onto the linked site yet.

He fought drug addiction for years
Can anyone copy the article here?

Yeah, sorry to read this news but it is not shocking. Condolences to his family and friends.

Damn.. He never seemed quite fit for this world. Guess I'm not shocked... but sad.

Truly one of my favorite actors. Enjoyed his comedy for sure. But I thought he came into his own more acting. He brought me and I'm sure all of us some good times. He will continue to entertain for generations I'm sure. Not a bad legacy

Thanks

Peace

Damn, nice guy. Met him at a Tony Bennett/k.d. lang PBS gig. Like a lot of celebs, he and Mr Bennett are fairly short, 5'7" in high heels, munchkins. He had the line of the night. "Do a couple more of these gigs and you might be able to afford some shoes," he quipped to k.d., who prefers to perform barefoot.

It seems at times we are all held here by the slightest, single thread.

Thanks for all the joy you brought into my life Robin Williams! You'll be missed around here !!

Sincere condolences to his family and many friends.

When I drove limousines in LA back in the 80s he was in my car once, going to a gig. His agent was there too and he did his whole routine in the back of my car and I spent the entire drive trying to laugh as quietly as I could, so I could appear professional. He tipped me lavishly and was so sweet. I've had a special place for him in my heart and I am so very sad to hear this. Rest in Peace, Robin.

I liked when MOrk wore PA climbing shoes.

Yes wore the PA shoes, my son just told me about this. Sounds like another cowardly suacide. Life is a gift, I hate this sh#t. I wish his wife and family peace.

Dang, and all this time I thought the alien Mork wore EBs. Man, that was when climbing really broke into the mainstream.


Robin was really on the edge, you could just feel it watching him. Such mad talent....
