Remembering Robin Williams: His Best Appearances on TV and Film

Mashable:

Oscar-winning actor and comedian Robin Williams died on Monday at the age of 63. As a performer, Williams had the rare ability to make audiences laugh and cry. In remembrance of Williams and his long legacy, we’ve compiled some of his finest moments from television, stand-up and film.

I was reminded by my friend Sly that I heckled Robin Williams during the taping of his HBO Special, “Live on Broadway”. He goes off on that Canada rant because some idiot in the audience (me) yelled out, “Yay Canada!” I met Williams years later on the show floor of Macworld Expo and we chatted for almost 30 minutes. I asked him about the heckling and he (jokingly) called me “an a-hole”. “You don’t heckle on Broadway!” he said.

    Shawn, are you telling us that that was you? I was actually introduced to Robin Williams’s stand-up routines by a Canadian I met in Beijing. I still think that ‘Live on Broadway’ is the funniest stand-up show I’ve ever seen.

      LOL Yup. I was in about the 6th row, next to Bryant Gumbel and Paul Risor. :)

        Very nice!

        This is my connection to the show: http://www.mangochutney.me/well-shit/

        I rewatched the how with that particular Canadian friend and she laughed hard at your interruption.
