RIP Robin Williams: 5 of the Actor’s Best Comedic Performances (Video)

From “Mork & Mindy” to “Live on Broadway,” the late, great funnyman’s most guffaw-inducing moments

“Robin Williams: Live on Broadway”

While Williams had immersed himself in dramatic film performances at the time, this uproarious 2002 stand-up show proved that he still had plenty of funny in him as he weighed in on life in post-9/11 America.

“Mrs. Doubtfire”

Williams was a total drag in this 1993 comedy about an actor who disguises himself as a female housekeeper so he can spend more time with his kids following a bitter divorce. Never has America laughed so hard at a man accidentally setting fire to his fake boobs.

“Good Morning, Vietnam”

Williams managed to wring humor out of warfare, playing a jabber-jawed deejay who makes waves while on the US Armed Services radio station.

“The Tonight Show”

In 1981, a young Williams appeared on Johnny Carson’s couch to deliver a rapid-fire string of one-liners that nobody was quite ready for.

“Mork & Mindy”

The show that made Williams a star. Williams’ portrayal of space alien Mork from Ork provided both an outsider’s perspective of humanity’s absurdity along with plenty of laughs.
