Media and internet exploded yesterday (and some still today) about the untimely death of Robin Williams. There’s really not much that I can add to the conversation except to say that I have always considered his ability to be totally zany one minute and convey something serious the next his true magic. He always kept us off guard yet still grounded.
On a personal level, if I can grow to have just a sliver of that kind of magic onstage, I will consider myself a successful comedian. And as of yesterday, I’ll have a little more time to practice since I was laid off of my IT job. Yeah, yesterday was not fun.
