Sam Kinison was another wild man where the drugs and alcohol made the man.
My favorite line from a Sam K, routine:
"And he better be the ONLY son of God!"

Obviously I would not wish a substance abuse problem on anyone (ok maybe Bill Gates; may his first hit of crack be his last, and may it happen soon).
And it's sad to see that RW's problem destroyed him. But there's no denying that it was the fuel of his over-the-top energy.
It didn't take long for screenwriters (even as early as "Mork & Mindy") to simply leave gaps in the script marked "let Robin go" and they just let him do his thing.
Yeah, he did a skit with Carol Burnette that might be of interest, related to that. They did the skit twice... the first time, straight, the second time with Robin Williams improvising:
Agree with much of that - and still think it's a sad loss. Didn't much care for his latest sitcom, but his stand up often cracked me up. And he was hilarious on Whose Line is it, Anyway? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8vdLSgMTOs
I found Richard Simmons even more amusing on Whose Line Is It Anyway, but that's probably not entirely due to Simmons' comedic talents.
<laughs> Can't disagree with an iota of that, fleeb....
(The joke to annoy the sensitive people)...
I'm waiting for The Onion to feature this headline:
Millions Depressed About Robin William's Death
ok. that did actually make me laugh...
but yes, too soon.
Part of me wonders what Robin Williams might have thought of the joke.
I can completely see him *using* that line, actually. Soon, but good.
Gads... his daughter Zelda Williams has quit social media because it got rather nasty towards her. People were sending her photos of her father's corpse or something.
I like a good laugh, but that isn't really very funny.
wow, yeah...that's not funny

Zelda should come hang out with us cool froods on Citadel. It's like logging in to a microbrew when Faecesbook is warm Budweiser.
At least the two people responsible were banned from those services, but still, the damage is done.
People seem to forget that there are people on the other side.
I heard several groups have claimed responsibility.
That should make finding them as clear as mud.
