When Robin Williams passed away in 2014, the world lost a true comedic genius. Growing up, I was always aware of Robin Williams from Good Morning Vietnam to the late-night reruns of Mork & Mindy that I would watch on Nickelodeon’s Nick at Nite. I became a fan of his after watching his special performances in Mrs. Doubtfire and Disney’s Aladdin. It was in these formats where I began to understand his legendary status.
His work is now being celebrated by TimeLife with a new DVD collection which spans Williams’ entire career. The ultimate, one-of-a-kind 22-disc collection features 50+ hours spanning 40 years on TV, including all five HBO Stand-Up specials. The collection also features never-before-released performances, backstage footage, talk show and late night appearances and rare archival clips. Brand new interviews feature Billy Crystal, Steve Martin, Jay Leno, Martin Short, Pam Dawber, Lewis Black and Zak Williams. A bonus DVD of the HBO documentary and a collectible memory book featuring archival photos, and Robin’s tour notes come with this collection.
