Robin Williams R.I.P – 21st July 1951 – 11th August 2014

Young Robin Williams was an impressive manic comic with a bizarre but hilarious way of putting things across.

He was a writer and performer for The Richard Pryor Show which was a sketch comedy show that lasted just four episodes back in 1977 before being pulled by NBC.

Then in 1978 Robin Williams made a guest appearance on Happy Days where he played the part of a space alien called Mork from Ork. This was the start of big things to come and soon he developed his own sitcom which was called Mork & Mindy.

Night at the Museum 3

One the last films Robin has worked on was the Night at the Museum 3 with Ben Stiller.
