Robin Williams is Faster Than You

I've loved Robin Williams ever since I used to watch reruns of Mork and Mindy on Nick at Nite, or Hook on TBS, or even Moscow on the Hudson when it would air on HBO. I know of no one who works with his level of bravery, imagination, or sense of abandon. I've met people who have actually told me that Robin makes them nervous, and I can't blame them. For folks who have no context of performance, it must be terrifying to witness a person who is willing to put themselves and their ego on the line the way Robin does everyday.

I've spent the entire night re-watching Mr. Williams' appearance on Inside the Actor's Studio. Here's the first video.

There are thirteen more, which gives you an idea of how much material Robin runs through in this interview. If you have the time and patience, I implore you to watch the whole thing. He is truly a joy.
