Robin Williams finished high school at Redwood in California, interestingly labelled as ‘funny’ but also ‘least likely to succeed’. Williams briefly studied political science at  Claremont Men’s College, but then acting at the College of Marin for three years, before being accepted into Julliard School, where he met Mandy Patikin, William Hurt and Christopher Reeve., who later commented on his energy and speed of thought. When Williams left Julliard School, he immediately went on to perform stand-up comedy in different clubs, where he was noticed by a television producer George Schlatter. Schlatter offered him an opportunity to star in the sketch comedy show called “Laugh-In”, which Williams eventually accepted. Inspired by Jonathan Winters, Jay Leno, and Lenny Bruce, Williams then shifted his humor to suit more intelligent and sophisticated audiences, and eventually made his way up to television.

After his debut on television screens, Robin Williams focused more on television work, seeing this as a chance to make a better living. Soon after “Laugh-In”, Williams landed a role in the popular series entitled “Happy Days” and later starred in “Mork and Mindy”, aired in many English-speaking countries, where his character Mork became extremely popular amongst its viewers. Williams’ successful portrayal of characters in television series landed him an opportunity to star in major films. His breakthrough performance occurred in 1980, when he starred as Popeye in a comedy film of the same name. During his acting career, Robin Williams was able to play a wide variety of characters aside from comedy, and worked with such directors as Woody Allen and Steven Spielberg, while starringed alongside some of the most famous actors, including Robert De Niro, Dustin Hoffman, Al Pacino, Julia Roberts, Bill Hader and many others. Williams also voiced several characters in “Happy Feet”, “FernGully: The Last Rainforest”, “Everyone’s Hero”, and “A.I. Artificial Intelligence” to name a few.

Robin Williams is regarded as one of the most successful American comedians and comic actors, his talent being appreciated around the world. For  contributions to the entertainment industry displayed from his involvement in over 70 films and 40 TV productions, Robin was rewarded with Grammy Awards, Golden Globe Awards, Academy Awards and many other accolades, over 20 altogether, as well as a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

In his personal life, Robin Williams was married three times, first to Valerie Velardi(1978-88) with whom he had a son. His second wife was Marsha Garces(1989-2010) – they had two sons. Finally Robin married Susan Schneider in 2011, who nursed him through his terminal illness. Robin Williams had been struggling with rather mild addictions to drugs, mainly cocaine, and alcoholism throughout his performing life, partly because of stress. Williams underwent heart surgery due to substance abuse, and was even admitted to the Addiction Treatment Center. Unfortunately, Williams also suffered from severe depression, which was thought to be one of the main reasons why he decided to commit suicide, but forensic investigations have confirmed that the basic problem was the rare Lewy Body Dementia, which leads to the aforementioned diseases, and for which there is no cure. Robin Williams was found dead in his house in California in 2014.

#Fact
1Helped pay for his friend Christopher Reeve's physical therapy and other medical expenses after Reeves's horse riding accident.
2Favorite actor of Omarion Grandberry.
3He named the British group Genesis as his favorite band and inducted them for the VH1 Rock Honors (2007).
4Was considered for the role of Hagrid in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.
5His then wife, Marsha Garces Williams produced Mrs. Doubtfire (1993).
6During the restaurant scene in Mrs. Doubtfire (1993) when her false teeth fell into a wine glass, the cast didn't know Williams would do that, and their reactions on film were genuine, mirroring the shock of the crew.
7There are several versions of Mrs. Doubtfire (1993) because of the sheer volume of Williams' improv, so it was difficult to edit the film to something resembling the script. Chris Columbus likened it to editing a documentary. These other versions were unworkable because tonally they were all over the place.
8When making Mrs. Doubtfire (1993), Williams and director Chris Columbus would often clown around between takes, like Mrs Doubtfire introducing Columbus as her son.
9Chris Columbus was amazed how far Williams took his performance in Mrs. Doubtfire (1993). First, he would play each scene as scripted 2-3 times and then was allowed to improvise. Columbus allowed Williams to do a lot of improv because that was where the film's funniest material came from; Columbus even called it magical at times. Scenes were shot between 15-22 times because Williams wasn't satisfied until he had the scene worked out of his system. Columbus admitted he never knew where Williams was going to take the character next.
10He appeared in three films with Billy Crystal: Hamlet (1996), Fathers' Day (1997) and Deconstructing Harry (1997).
11Williams did interviews as Mrs Doubtfire to promote the film, and sometimes played the interviewer too.
12Before making Mrs. Doubtfire (1993), Chris Columbus had already seen Williams in comedy clubs in Los Angeles. He was blown away at his energy, saying he was one of the most brilliant minds he had ever come across in terms of comedy. On stage he was a ball of fire that was really impressive.
13A best seller at most Episcopal camps or gift shops is Robin Williams 10 reasons to be Episcopalian. my personal favorite is "pew gymnastics". we sit, kneel, stand--repeat.
14Autopsy also revealed Robin Williams suffered from Lewy Body Dementia. It is a neurodegenerative disorder with a rapid onset, a higher prevalence in men and occurring after the age of 50, which is often mistaken for Parkinson's or Alzheimer's disease. Symptoms can include difficulty with alertness, hallucinations, slowing of movement, difficulty walking (ataxia or dystaxia), and rigidity. Restlessness during sleep and mood changes like depression are also common in Lewy Body Dementia.
15Became extremely close with Lisa Jakub and Mara Wilson who played his daughters in Mrs. Doubtfire (1993) and stayed in touch with them over the years. Mara described him as a source of great comfort after the death of her mother.
16He was fond of going to Comedy clubs and taking pictures with the club owners to be displayed on the walls, which made said clubs more popular and encouraged aspiring stand-ups to audition there.
17He had expressed interest in playing the Riddler in Batman Forever (1995) and was a fan favorite to do so, until Joel Schumacher took over the project and reworked the concept. He was also considered for the role of Hagrid in the Harry Potter series.
18Became very close with Sarah Michelle Gellar who played his daughter on The Crazy Ones (2013) and described him as a "surrogate father".
19More than 400 fellow celebrities, friends and co-stars gave condolences and paid tribute to him upon his tragic death. Internet surveys showed his name was the most "looked up" thing in 2014.
20He died only thirteen days before his Hamlet (1996) co-star Richard Attenborough.
21From August 16-18, 2014, Disney honored Robin Williams by airing Aladdin (1992) on their three children's channels (Disney Channel on Saturday, Disney XD on Sunday, and Disney Junior on Sunday evening and Monday morning), twice on each channel. At the end of the movie, just before the credits, they put up an image that read, "In Memory of Robin Williams, who made us laugh." using Eric Goldberg's (the movie's animator) tribute to him as a backdrop.
22Though Robin Williams was right-handed, he batted and golfed left-handed (Old Dogs (2009), The Crazy Ones (2013)).
23He was considered for the Genie in Aladdin (1992) from the scripting stage. Disney animators even modeled his face into the Genie's.
24Was close friends with Billy Crystal, Paul Reubens, Fred Travalena and Whoopi Goldberg.
25Robin Williams used a specific hand salute - with his thumb touching (or near) his nose, as in "thumbing your nose" - in television appearances and movies, among them: Mork & Mindy (1978), I Love Liberty (1982), The Survivors (1983), Club Paradise (1986), Good Morning, Vietnam (1987), Toys (1992), Mrs. Doubtfire (1993), Patch Adams (1998), The Night Listener (2006) and Night at the Museum (2006).
26Robin Williams slipped in phrases from his stand-up comedy into his serious movie roles, such as: "Gravity Works," (from An Evening with Robin Williams (1982)) in The Fisher King (1991) and FernGully: The Last Rainforest (1992). "Drive her/you to China," in Club Paradise (1986) and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (1988). "Harder than Chinese algebra," in Shrink (2009). Why Freud "did enough cocaine to kill a small horse," in Good Will Hunting (1997). "That won't look good on a resume," in Club Paradise (1986) and Good Morning, Vietnam (1987). Referencing "a waste processing plant next to a recreation area" in Bicentennial Man (1999). Referencing tattoos of Chinese/Kanji symbols for happiness and laughter in Shrink (2009).

37Mara Buxbaum was his longtime press agent and publicist.
38Upon his death, his wife, Susan Schneider said, "This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin's family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin's death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.".
39Was declared dead at 12:02 PM on August 11, 2014, seven minutes after the call was received by 911 operators, and two minutes after paramedics arrived at his home in the unincorporated town of Tiburon, which is in Marin County, California, USA, just north of San Francisco. The cause was apparent suicide after a long bout with severe depression.
40Was the first choice for the role of Bob Wiley in What About Bob? (1991), but was forced to turn it down because he was finishing filming The Fisher King (1991), at the same exact time. The role went to Bill Murray instead.

Williams appeared in Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet (1996), as Osric, a role that Guinness had played on stage opposite John Gielgud.

96One week after Christopher Reeve's tragic horseriding accident, Robin visited him in the hospital. However, he was dressed from head to toe in scrubs, spoke with a Russian accent, and had a surgical mask on. He was acting as if he was a real doctor and did a bunch of wacky antics.

#Quote
1[his word for improv] Playing.
2I don't know how much value I have in this universe, but I do know that I've made a few people happier than they would have been without me, and as long as I know that, I'm as rich as I ever need to be.
3Cocaine is nothing new; it's been part of Hollywood from the outset. It's the pressure, I think. People use it to relieve that, and for me it was about getting numb and forgetting. I did coke so I wouldn't have to talk to anyone. For me it was a true sedative, a way to pull back from the world.
4[on the first film to make a big impression on him] That was 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). I saw it at the Cinerama with my parents and was totally slack-jawed. With that sort of cinema and that film, you don't ever need to take acid! It knocked me out. I love science fiction and Kubrick. That whole experience was so surreal.
5My childhood was lonely. Both my parents were away a lot, working, and the maid basically raised me. And I think that's where a lot of my comedy comes from. Not only was the maid very funny and witty, but when my mother came home I'd use humor to try and get her attention. If I made mommy laugh, then maybe everything would be all right. I think that's where it all started.
6I had my midlife crisis when I was about 30, so I got that over with. But when I hit 50, it was like, this is cool. It feels like the prime of your life, literally. Things are going great; you've come to the point where it's no longer a struggle. As Rodney Dangerfield said, "Why am I sweating? I own the club!" You're there, so you don't have to worry as much. And yet the object is to keep working, to find interesting parts, and obviously it's skewed more for men than women to find character parts at my age. And, hey, supporting parts are just as interesting as the lead.
7[on George W. Bush] There's nothing Bush has said, apart from a few malapropisms, that we will remember. Comparing him to Churchill is akin to comparing Margaret Thatcher and Paris Hilton.
8[on who can run for office in American politics] We're frightening away people who have lived interesting lives, intelligent people who might have inhaled, who might have had different sexual experiences or orientations, but who are stone-cold brilliant.
9The imagination functions on its own. I grew up as an only child, so the imagination was a necessity, like a survival mechanism.
10Being a celebrity is like wearing a Mardi Gras head - although you're not floating! Obviously it's great that it can get you a table in a restaurant, but it can also get people following you into the men's room with a palm-cam.
11Life's a tragedy to those who feel and a comedy to those that think. So it can be curse in that you find something funny in even the darkest thing.
12It's amazing that medical science can develop a drug to give you an erection, but can't develop a drug to give you mental clarity.
13[on Genesis] This is a group that pulled off the single most surprising lead singer swap in all of rock history. Their first great frontman Peter Gabriel decided to stop dressing like vegetables and little furry woodland creatures and went solo to shock his monkey. And instead of asking another steadily qualified singer or having a talent contest so Simon Cowell could go, "I'm sorry, darling, you suck!", no, they just looked to their brilliantly gifted drummer and said, "You! Collins! You Bob Hoskins lookalike! Get your ass up to the microphone and sing your bollocks off!". And so Phil did, and it was good, and the goodness became greatness.
14[from his first appearance on "The Tonight Show", October 14, 1981] I was the only child on my block on Halloween to go, "Trick or trout!"..."Here comes that young Williams boy again. Better get some fish.".
15[on World's Greatest Dad (2009) being an "indictment of the modern grief industry", and asked if it's getting worse] Well, I think people want it. In a weird way, it's trying to keep hope alive.[on if he does or doesn't share the film's "judgment on mawkish sentimentality"] Well, you just try and keep it in perspective; you have to remember the best and the worst. In America they really do mythologize people when they die.
16You're only given a little spark of madness. If you lose that, you're nothing.
17If women ran the world, we wouldn't have wars, just intense negotiations every 28 days.
18The truth is, if anything, I'm probably addicted to laughter.
19Divorce is expensive. I used to joke they were going to call it "all the money", but they changed it to "alimony". It's ripping your heart out through your wallet.
20I used to think that the worst thing in life was to end up alone. It's not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel alone.
21[on working with Al Pacino on Insomnia (2002)] I loved working with Pacino. Al does this Method thing where before every take he roars like a lion. So my first day working with him I bleated like a goat: "What was that?!" "Hi Al, I'm here, it's just Robin, just playing." Playing scenes with him was a little surreal, because I was like, "I'm watching Al Pacino!" and then I'd realize I had to act, too. I loved talking to him off-set. He plays all these incredible characters, but he claims most of the time he just wants to be in the Village having coffee and discussing Aristotle. Having worked with Robert De Niro (on Awakenings (1990)) I was kind of prepared for the idea of someone who's that intense. (If I ever get to work with Robert Duvall, I'll have the entire Godfather collector's set. Except for Brando. But I got to meet Brando once, so I guess that qualifies.) But like Christopher Nolan, even though he's very focused, he's also prepared to try anything. At that time, Al was flying back and forth from L.A. because his twins were just born, so I think he was way beyond Method acting: he really wasn't getting any sleep. He was completely ragged, and that was perfect.
22Jonathan Winters was my mentor. I told him that and he said, "Please, I prefer idol".
23[on Jonathan Winters] Jonathan taught me that the world is open for play, that everything and everybody is mockable, in a wonderful way.
24Stand-up is the place where you can do things that you could never do in public. Once you step on stage you're licensed to do that. It's an understood relationship. You walk on stage - it's your job.
25Men can't fake an orgasm, who wants to look that dumb, you know what I'm saying?
26I went to rehab in wine country just to keep my options open.
27I was once walking in an airport and a woman came up to me and said, "Be zany!". That'd be like walking up to Baryshikov and going, "Plie! Just do a plie! Do it! Do a releve right now! Lift my wife!".
28There's so much to talk about. The fact that Donald Trump wants to see Obama's birth certificate. I want to see his hairline first.
29[on entertaining the troops on USO tours] I enjoy it. I enjoy performing for heavily armed people. It's easier than going to Georgia.
30I'd play the Riddler in the next Batman, although it'd be hard to top Heath Ledger as the villain, and I'm a little hairy for tights. Plus, the Batman films have screwed me twice before: years ago they offered me the Joker and then gave it to Jack Nicholson, then they offered me the Riddler and gave it to Jim Carrey.
31Australians are basically English rednecks. If Darwin had landed in Australia, he would have gone: "I'm wrong".
32[While accepting the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for Good Will Hunting (1997)] Most of all, I want to thank my father, up there, the man who when I said I wanted to be an actor, he said, "Wonderful. Just have a back-up profession like welding.".
33I believe I could do dance on ice, or play in a musical of Freud's life called "It's Your Mother" - or maybe one for the symbolists: "Jung at Heart". There's always the one about India: "The Gandhi Man Can".
34Okra is the closest thing to nylon I've ever eaten. It's like they bred cotton with a green bean. Okra, tastes like snot. The more you cook it, the more it turns into string.
35[on his acting career]: All the new people you meet, it's pretty amazing. The vampire needs new blood. And there is still a lot to learn and there is always great stuff out there. Even mistakes can be wonderful.
36I started doing comedy because that was the only stage that I could find. It was the pure idea of being on stage. That was the only thing that interested me, along with learning the craft and working, and just being in productions with people.
37Countering the complaint that the juiciest roles go to younger actors: They (the roles) may not be financially enriching, but personally enriching? Yes. You are no longer under pressure. You don't have to prove yourself on some levels, but you do have to [creatively] push yourself.
38They're talking about partial nuclear disarmament, which is also like talking about partial circumcision - you either go all the way or forget it.
39You're only given one little spark of madness. You mustn't lose it.
40About comic lines written by Mark Shaiman being removed for innuendo (i.e. "Chip 'n Dale are both strippers") the week before for his presenting of Best Animated Film at the 77th Academy Awards: For a while you get mad, then you get over it. They're afraid of saying Olive Oyl is anorexic. It tells you about the state of humor. It's strange to think: how afraid are you? We thought that they got the irony of it. I guess not.
41A woman would never make a nuclear bomb. They would never make a weapon that kills, no, no. They'd make a weapon that makes you feel bad for a while.
42Everyone has these two visions when they hold their child for the first time. The first is your child as an adult saying "I want to thank the Nobel Committee for this award." The other is "You want fries with that?".
43[on Popeye (1980)] If you watch it backwards, it has a plot.
44[to troops in Iraq] I'm looking at a group of heavily armed people here. I'm telling myself "If you're not funny, it's a problem.".
45Comedy is acting out optimism.
46[on Canada] Canada is like a loft apartment over a really great party.
47You can start any Monty Python routine and people finish it for you. Everyone knows it like shorthand.
48Ballet: Men wearing pants so tight that you can tell what religion they are.
49See, the problem is that God gives men a brain and a penis, and only enough blood to run one at a time.
50Ah, yes, divorce, from the Latin word meaning to rip out a man's genitals through his wallet.
51...And now that you have a child you have to clean up your act, 'cause you can't drink anymore. You can't come home drunk and go, "Hey, here's a little switch: Daddy's gonna throw up on you!".
52Cocaine is God's way of telling you you are making too much money.
