Robin Williams

The multipurpose standup comic/actor first rose to fame as the delightful Mork from Ork on the TV show Mork and Mindy, and he rode that show to fame on cable TV specials and numerous films, including The World According to Garp, Good Morning, Vietnam, Hook, Mrs. Doubtfire, and Good Will Hunting (for which he won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor). His albums include 1979's Reality...What a Concept and 2010's Weapons of Self Destruction. Using a wide assemblage of voices and movements, Williams was one of the most popular and visible comics the world over, and his releases highlight him. He was a beloved figure not only for his lightning-fast improvisational skills, but for his ability to immerse himself fully in both comedic and dramatic film roles, and for his generous involvement in a variety of charitable causes.
