I am in agreement with Observant Lurker. I have NEVER been amused in anyway whatsoever by the "humor" of Robin Williams. The guy just was not funny, not at all. "Comic genius" my ass. And the news is covering him more than they covered Nelson Mandela. The world is on fire, in Iraq, Gaza, Ukraine, and every time I turn on the news either television or radio, they're talking about Robin Williams.

I am reminded of when Whitney Houston died and the world was stunned. My first thought was, BFD, another crack whore with more money than God but can't handle the success, dies in a bathtub. Move on folks, nothing to see here.

Same thing now, BFD. An unfunny, unnoteworthy, Hollywood person with more money than God, can't handle success, uses cocaine and booze and whatever else, in rehab, ANOTHER great role model for the children, hangs himself.

"Genius", get real. What a loser.

Oh, c'mon. Now this is funny:

Well, that's different. Michael Jackson jokes are funny.

But that was clever, somewhat.

I agree with you, paul on the comedy bit. I don't think Williams was all
that funny most of the time. That frenetic delivery of his stream of
consciousness schtick never impressed me, but he was a very good actor in
serious roles such as Good Will Hunting. He was a talented entertainer, but
overrated in my opinion.

People that talk about suicide as 'the coward's way out' have no idea what real honest to goodness debilitating depression is like. They're just ignorant. I had a family member in an Austrian prison who killed his brother. He finally hung himself inside. Nothing wrong with that either. Some people can't take the daily, constant abuse for the rest of their lives. Shouldn't judge them.
btw, his brother was no innocent. Not that he deserved to die, but he committed acts which went against the ten commandments.

Williams also tried to play serious roles. He was passable in "Dead
Poets Society". I wasn't impressed with "Garp".

Agreed, but a little harsh? Remember, Horses for Courses. A lot of
people liked him. He was one of the last guests on Carson, and he knew a
little about talent.

I remember watching 4 or 5 episodes of Mork and Mindy way back, and the
improv got tired pretty fast. I looked it up and this show ran for 94
episodes! And every one the same. You can fool a lot of people a long
time. As for the show last year, a crass rip of another show about admen,
which is way funnier and great. I liked some of the movies I saw with
him, but will never rewatch them, and he pretty much played himself in
every one. Nice work if you can get it.

i'd imagine playing yourself can be pretty brutal. ever sat down to write
a story or some sort based on real experience and actually jotted down the
honest truth about what you thought and felt? there's risk in that -- a
lot of risk -- and for being able to be straight with the planet, i give
the guy a lot of credit.

again, his comedy annoyed the shit out of me, and i sure as hell wouldn't
want to hang out with a guy who can't turn of his shit, but people need to
take it easy here.

I believe that smart people may know how to use apostrophes correctly, but
don't always spend the time to think about it and may occasionallly not take

I also believe that overly pedantic people lose perspective on what may or

Why does it bother you that some people don't think Williams was funny? Are you that insecure in your opinions? Every person's sense of humor is different.

Here are some more comics I don't find even slightly funny --

Steve Martin

Jimmy Fallon

Dave Letterman

Here are some comics and non-comics I find absolutely hilarious --

Jonathan Winters

Jack Paar

Johnny Carson

Jay Leno

Clint Eastwood

Jonathan Winters was Robin Williams' idol. Try as he may in my opinion
he was a poor imitation of Winters. I do think he was a solid actor though.

Oh for fuck's sake, NOT Family Guy. Wouldn't I say it was a fucking cartoon if that's what I was looking for? For some reason Louie reminded me of this other program, where a man, a REAL man, is dressed up as a dog, not fucking Brian Griffin, sheesh. Wtf is wrong with you?

For not funny, I think the #1 in that category is Joey Bishop.

I didn't like Robin Williams' comedy schtick. I found it quite tiresome
and often nonsensical. Paradoxically, I thought he was a really good
actor, especially in serious roles.

Who do I like better? Going off this list:

http://comediansincarsgettingcoffee.com/

(great web series, by the way)

Larry David
Ricky Gervais
Carl Reiner
Mel Brooks
David Letterman
Sarah Silverman
Chris Rock
Louis C.K.
Jay Leno
Howard Stern
Jon Stewart
Aziz Ansari
Robert Klein
Jerry Seinfeld


....all better comedians than Willams, imo.

Gosh, that was rough. I watched about seven minutes of it, and it was too rough for me. And I'm no prude, not really, anyway. Besides, I used to bust up watching Andrew Dice Clay, and he's pretty rough too. I dunno, I've never seen Jeffries before, maybe it gets better, but I probably won't find out. That's some crude humor there, man.

I am in agreement with Observant Lurker. I have NEVER been amused in anyway whatsoever by the "humor" of Robin Williams. The guy just was not funny, not at all. "Comic genius" my ass. And the news is covering him more than they covered Nelson Mandela. The world is on fire, in Iraq, Gaza, Ukraine, and every time I turn on the news either television or radio, they're talking about Robin Williams.
I am reminded of when Whitney Houston died and the world was stunned. My first thought was, BFD, another crack whore with more money than God but can't handle the success, dies in a bathtub. Move on folks, nothing to see here.
The difference is that Whitney Houston was extremely talented. Robin
Williams hit his peak with Mork and Mindy. OTOH, the best thing
about that show was Mindy.

Whether or not it was "cowardly", it's obvious that a person must be tortured in his mind to resort to something so final. It's sad, and I empathize, but it's impossible to put myself in their shoes. I wouldn't wish that on anyone. Unless, of course, I hated them.

Some might find it impossible to do what is needed to be treated.
Like knock off the booze and drugs. Stay on the meds, etc.
What I really don't get is why would a person select a violent way
to die? That makes me think they really hate themselves, or are

Some people do everything they can, and the treatment still doesn't
work. Meds are not effective for everyone.

Also, alcoholism is a disease. It's circular reasoning to say that,
by not stopping, they're not doing what is needed to be treated. By
definition, the treatment hasn't worked if they can't stop drinking.

LOL @ "AFAIK." Cancer is treatable, too; but it doesn't mean it can be cured. For some, the only way out of the pain of depression, is death.

human being. we know nothing of his personal life..not
really. I HATE when people call those who commit suicide
COWARDS. a person is in despair, and their mind is not
thinking logically. give the guy and others like him a
break. jmho
he's not just a coward; he's a selfish coward. inflicting
pain like that on your family is beyond reproach. truly
pathetic.
That's what I was thinking.
Life is for the living, so who knows what guilt his family will
carry around, always wondering if they could have done more to help
him.

Close friends of mine, their little girl I knew when she was 8, killed herself when she was 31. Destroyed the parents. Just destroyed them. Absolutely devastated them. I'm still shaking my head about it, and that was ten years ago. I just don't get it.

I've never known anyone that took their own life.
It could be that the person cannot continue doing what they want to
do, or don't get the satisfaction anymore from doing it. And/or
they are unable to replace it with something that keeps them
occupied, satisfied, and busy.

It's more like a chemical imbalance in the brain which causes a
terrible, relentless, overwhelming feeling of hopelessness and/or
anxiety. Obviously the circumstances of one's life are of little
relevance, since Williams by all appearances, "had it all".

Not really. He recently had to sell his $35 million winery and estate.

When I was a kid, I had an uncle who committed suicide. He'd been
struggling with depression and other problems since his childhood.

Two acquaintances have killed themselves. One of them got drunk and
put a gun to his head. The other hung herself. Even though I wasn't
close friends with either one, both incidents were shocking and
depressing.

I had a friend who shot himself. I think back on all the times when I was at his house and he had a little to drink and started waving that fucking gun around, used to make me nervous. He got very weird when drinking. He was a poker dealer, and was just as charming as could be when dealing. I'd take his girlfriend home on his day off and he'd already be loopey when we got there. One day, I was at my house and got the phone call, he just up and put that gun to his head in front of his girlfriend and her daughter, just like I had seen him fucking around before, but this time he splattered his brains across the room in front of everyone. I really liked him, but that could have been my brains splattering on his wall. Booze brought out his sickness.

My barber shot himself. He'd been battling cancer for over 10-years and apparently couldn't take the pain. Without telling anyone, he called his best friend to come over to 'help him with a project;' then got in the bathtub (to make less of a mess). When he heard the doorbell, he waited until his wife answer the door, and he shot himself. The 'friend' was to help the wife through the ordeal.

Suicide is now legal in Oregon, under special circumstances.

It has been. From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suicide_legislation

In ancient Athens, a person who had committed suicide (without the approval of the state) was denied the honours of a normal burial. The person would be buried alone, on the outskirts of the city, without a headstone or marker.[3] A criminal ordinance issued by Louis XIV in 1670 was far more severe in its punishment: the dead person's body was drawn through the streets, face down, and then hung or thrown on a garbage heap. Additionally, all of the person's property was confiscated.[4]

Your article does not support the comment that suicide was "illegal" ...
even in ancient Athens. ( Did the body-defendant in old France get a
fair jury trial before it was desecrated? )

Show me the old "suicide is illegal" statute in Oregon, twit.

I couldn't find a reference at short notice, but there was a case in New England where they finally decided to hang the dead person as punishment.

I believe that the French reference refers to a 'criminal ordinance'.

Arguably, it could be worse. A work acquaintance of mine ate a rifle --
through the chin and out the top of his head, huge mess. I saw him a couple
of years (and a couple dozen reconstructive surgeries) later. He was
basically propped up in his dad's pickup. He wasn't able to speak, but he
nodded in my direction -- I really doubt it was in recognition. He was
totally dependent on others for *EVERYTHING* and will probably live another
30+ years in that condition.

you know paul...it's your perfect right to not appreciate robin William's
humor. it's a free country. however, you seem to know nothing about
clinical depression. it's not just 'feeling blue' for a few days...it's a
terrible struggle. for all we know, he could have tried self medicating
thru his use of alcohol and drugs. we simply don't know. try having a
little compassion for a fellow human being. we know nothing of his
personal life..not really. I HATE when people call those who commit
suicide COWARDS. a person is in despair, and their mind is not thinking

And you remain a pathetically ignorant person. Even signed your name to it.

I am in agreement with Observant Lurker. I have NEVER been amused in anyway whatsoever by the "humor" of Robin Williams. The guy just was not funny, not at all. "Comic genius" my ass. And the news is covering him more than they covered Nelson Mandela. The world is on fire, in Iraq, Gaza, Ukraine, and every time I turn on the news either television or radio, they're talking about Robin Williams.
He was OK in Mork and Mindy, although I think Johnathen Winters was great. Robin Williams was a better dramatic actor than a comedian.

I am reminded of when Whitney Houston died and the world was stunned. My first thought was, BFD, another crack whore with more money than God but can't handle the success, dies in a bathtub. Move on folks, nothing to see here.
Same thing now, BFD. An unfunny, unnoteworthy, Hollywood person with more money than God, can't handle success, uses cocaine and booze and whatever else, in rehab, ANOTHER great role model for the children, hangs himself.
"Genius", get real. What a loser.
