The Life Of Robin Williams

Robin Williams was one of the funniest comedians of all time.  His improvisational skills were almost other-worldly!  Yet behind the comic persona lay a complex man

Robin Williams

– intensely charitable and compassionate, but plagued by insecurity,battling addictions and vulnerable to depression. In this multi-media presentation, we will examine the fascinating life and sad death of Robin Williams – and watch as his amazing career took shape!

 

While early audiences remember him as Mork; others remember his free form, intense improvisational riffs.  We will also celebrate his long, accomplished and acclaimed career as a film actor.

Good Morning, Vietnam

 

Like Steve Martin, Robin Williams became a superb movie actor, able to take on roles in drama, comedy, animation, thrillers – and he made an indelible impression in every genre. He was nominated several times for Oscars, winning a coveted Academy Award as a serious psychotherapist in “Good Will Hunting.”

We will look at clips from a wides sampling of his movie work including “Mrs. Doubtfire,” “Aladdin,” “Awakenings,” “One Hour Photo,” “Good Morning, Vietnam,” Robin Williams-Night-at-the-Museum“A Night At The Museum,” “Good Will Hunting” and many more.

Although we will certainly talk about his tragic death, most of this wonderful presentation will focus on the amazing life and truly unparalleled talent of Robin Williams.
