    German Interviewer: Mr. Williams, why do you think there's not so much comedy in Germany?
    Williams: Did you ever think you killed all the funny people?
    Incredible!

    RIP Mr. Williams!

    Even though he wasn't my cup of tea its still tragic when someone takes their own life. Alot of times no one can see this coming. My chiropractor who was the most upbeat happy go lucky guy you could ever meet took his own life. Ive known his now widowed wife from childhood and one day we received a call that Eric had been missing for a couple days, then later that evening we got the call that the police had found him in his car. He had shot himself in the head. So sad and tragic, the guy seemingly had everything to live for. He left behind a beautiful wife and twin 8yr old boys. If only we had known of the demons he was battling maybe someone could have helped, very sad indeed.

    Re: Robin Williams committed suicude.

    I hope he didn't go out like David Carradine - auto-asphyxiated and dressed in women's lingerie.

So though I gather the suicide is not in question, I still think he doesn't need to be painted with a return to drugs as the reason unless or until we have some valid ME statement to that.

    Oh no! Not Robin Williams!

    So, so, sad!

    It is double sad that the man who did so much for us to feel better about our lives would suffer himself from bipolarity. This to the degree to cause him to follow the suicidal route just like other comedy giants such as: John Bellushi, Andy Kaufman, etc!

    Personally, I'm not interested in why the man took his own life - there's too much digging into the private lives of people, famous or not, and it serves no purpose other than to spread ill informed gossip and an attempt to lessen the person's value to those who cared about his life.

    Personally, I'm sad to see another contemporary of mine have their life end - growing older often sucks - I'd like to celebrate the man's life and the manic joy he brought to the occasion whenever he was officially, or unofficially, entertaining us.

    RIP good sir and may your family and many friends find comfort in having had the privilege to share time with you along your journey.

    Sad that one of the Kings of Funny, couldn't keep a smile on his own face. I wish I could say that was surprising but it isn't really. That level of creativity rarely comes from a person with everything going right.

    RIP Robin Williams.

    Very very sad. Williams was easily the greatest humorist of the past fifty years. And his dramatic acting was excellent. I recently watched him again in GOOD WILL HUNTING and thought he owned that role as he was that perfect in it.

    I remember a segment on Carson where he and Jonathon Winters fed off each other and Johnny just surrendered laughing with everybody else trying to keep up but being a mile behind.

    Stephen Spielberg relates how when he was making SCHLINDER'S LIST in Poland, he would get depressed and call RW at night and WIlliams would do comedy for him helping Spielberg to deal with the demons of making that film.

    He will be missed.
