Improvisational genius and from what I've read not a more genuine human being in Hollywood.  My favorite work of his was in Good Will Hunting.

Words can't describe.  I watched Mork and Mindy religiously every Thursday night.

Such a genius.  He did brilliant comedy and drama as well.  I second his role in Good Will Hunting as one of his best and most complex characters, Hoss.

Itís been a somewhat known fact that he was manic depressive.  Some of his best comic work came when he was in real manic phases and roles like Good Will Hunting and Dead Poetís Society were so authentic because they drew from his dark side. 

Also a very good ambassador to the sport of cycling.

A real American legend passed today.  At least we have a record of his work to look back and enjoy.  I hope he finally found peace.

This is the scene that I am guessing won him the Academy...great 4 minutes of acting.

Obama issues a thoughtful statement on Williams' passing. So naturally, people get ticked off.

His generation of comedians were superb. Richard Pryor, Bill Cosby, Gene Wilder, Steve Martin, to name a few. Those who can do stand-up and still transition to serious acting without struggle are the best. I feel like I lost a friend from my youth. Full moon did it.

The first time I saw his stand up was on HBO in 1978 from The Roxy on Sunset. We could not stop talking about it and imitating him at school afterwards.

Not the best video quality, I want to see if I can find it on DVD. Some language may be NSFW.
