As everyone knows, one of the best comedic performers has passed. Robin Williams passed away Monday afternoon at the age of 63. As a huge fan of Robin Williams, I am here like most to celebrate the life he lived, through a series of my favorite films. Below are some of my favorite excerpts of just a select few of his films. He’s proven to be an excellent comedian as well as receiving Oscar and Golden Globe nods/wins for his dramatic roles. He has blessed us with countless movies and several characters we’ve grown to love, but one of my favorite characters is Robin Williams himself. We are lucky enough to be able to look back at certain films and remember the life he lived and the joy he brought to others. I can definitely say my childhood wouldn’t be the same without half of the 90’s films Robin starred in. Thank you for teaching me to laugh, cry, be creative, and express your inner manic weirdness!
“You-you alone will have the stars as no one else has them…In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night…You-only you- will have stars that can laugh.” -Antoine De Saint-Exupery
