I have to tell you, I love Robin Williams and this is the perfect thing for everyone self quarantining right now! The comic genius that Robin Williams is, to be honest can’t be truly appreciated if you only know him by this films. While they are classics, his stand up and early work is so good it’s hard to even compare them.
That’s why I think this launch of the Robin Williams YouTube Channel is awesome! Check out the info below and then enter to win of his classic DVD sets!
THIS APRIL, LAUGH IT UP AS TIME LIFE LAUNCHES
THE OFFICIAL ROBIN WILLIAMS YOUTUBE CHANNEL,
CELEBRATING THE ICON’S INIMITABLE GENIUS
The Channel, a Digital Home for Williams’ Classic Sketches and
Exclusive Extras, Will Launch With Five Clips and Then
Debut a New Clip Each Week
While Robin Williams started performing stand-up comedy in the mid-‘70s, most of America first fell in love with him as the naïve and hilarious alien from the planet Ork in Mork & Mindy. He became an instant superstar and went on to do five HBO stand-up specials and dozens of feature films. Robin performed steadily for nearly four decades—from comedy clubs to stadiums, from talk shows to USO tours—and continually amazed audiences with his frenetic energy and unbelievably quick wit.
This April Fools’ Day, the comedy connoisseurs at Time Life will launch The Official Robin Williams YouTube Channel, celebrating Robin’s comic genius. Whether you know Robin from the stage or from the screen, as a comedian, an alien, or a genie—home audiences can subscribe to the channel and be prepared to laugh and cry at unforgettable and hilarious performances by the singular talent.
Upon launch, the channel will feature classic live performance clips hand-picked from Robin’s HBO stand-up specials, including his uproarious sketch on the beginnings of golf (Live on Broadway, 2002), his emotional “Spark of Madness” (Off the Wall, 1978) and a hilarious and detailed account of his run-in with the famous signing gorilla, Koko (Live on Broadway). Also featured at launch are exclusive, recently shot interview clips with comedian Lewis Black on “Becoming Friends with Robin Williams” and David Steinberg, Williams’ longtime manager and friend holding forth with an “Inside Look on Robin Williams’ Genius.” Each week following the launch, the comedy mavens at Time Life will post a brand new clip to the channel.
Of the channel, Steinberg says, “What a great time to enjoy the gift of Robin’s genius. Who doesn’t need a laugh?”
The Official Robin Williams YouTube Channel follows on the heels of Time Life’s release of ROBIN WILLIAMS: COMIC GENIUS, a trio of DVD collections celebrating the iconic comedian’s 40-year career.
