insanity Robin Williams

This interview from “Inside the actors studio” with Robin Williams is so amazing! It came as a surprise to me to see Robin Williams as a standup and improv artist. I knew him only through the movies …

After seeing this great interview Robin Williams really won me over. He is amazing, funny and so talented. Seeing him so raw and crazy makes up for the layers of Hollywood Kitsch that sometimes, in my opinion, are too much on his movies. It also made me go back and look at these movies with other eyes as I started appreciating the ironies, thoughtfulness and fun he sneaks into his characters and acts. Inside the Actors Studio hosted by James Lipton is a “secret” gem that presents actors infront of an audience of blooming and upstarting students of the craft and thereby captures unique moments.

The interviews are well researched and always end on a similar section of questions and an open Q&A. Most episodes are worthwhile the watch and this one with Robin Williams is hilarious and even baffles the host.
