Mork and Mindy was great but Pam Dawber paid the price for her success on the show by having to marry Mark Harmon.

Jonathan Winters was one of his idols, mentor, inspiration, and good friend.

I know. They did the same sort of comedy.

I was standing in the kitchen with CNN on the television when the news broke.
All I could do is stand there stunned.
People like Robin Williams just don't do this, do they?
I mean he had everything to live for, didn't he?
Fortune and fame.......

Sometimes that isn't enough.
Inside every gifted artistic mind lies a bit of the unsettled, whether poet, comic, musician etc..
It's what makes them do what they do best.

When I was a kid, I never got into Mork and Mindy. Didn't understand his humour or the attraction of that show.
Then I saw him on Carson one night.
That changed it all.
His insane improvisational routine blew me away.
Once he got going, he couldn't stop.

I think the best interview I ever saw with him was on Inside The Actors Studio.

Who said he died from drug addiction?


I don't think anyone knows the true cause behind his death as yet other than depression and asphyxia.
Maybe he hung himself?
Maybe he'd found out he had an incurable disease that no one else knew about but him.

Same here! But this isn't about US!!

He choked on a pretzel when he heard about Sarah Palin's new channel. He wasn't depressed but excited about another ten years of material.

Well, You may not think that's funny but I was just listening to him going off on Palin and I promise he would have laughed.
