Default Robin Williams at Prince Charles 60th

This clip is from the tribute show to Prince Charles 60th birthday, We Are not Amused, well worth downloading the whole thing (UKNova) but Robin Williams on Obama is brilliant!

Agree with you Thyd. I can listen to him for a while then I always think he just gets really silly


I think the best thing I have ever seen him do was the serious role he had in One Hour Photo. He was a very good creepy/pervy character

I can't stand him in chat shows or stand-up either. Look at me I'm manic whacky and zany with lot's of annoying voices, that shit is so overplayed since Mork & Mindy 30 years ago, he just irritates me now.

Some of his serious roles are okay, The 'Night listener' was another good one along with 'One hour photo'.

.............and to top it off they had that annoying twat John Cleese introducing. I can't stand him either, he just plays the condescending upper class Englishman in every role since he did anything worth watching. That was Fawlty Towers which was also 30 years ago.

...
I find him 'too much' in large doses, but once in a while, a short blast is pretty good - like the subject routine here - about 8 minutes of mile-a-minute delivery. His 'annoying voices' were actually pretty good impersonations. He managed to deliver a 20 minute routine in that 8 minute blast ...
