    Loved him, was a real unique comedian. Could do "improve" with the best.

    Remember him back in the early days...Mork and Mindy. Loved that show.
    I recall reading him say when he was young, his idol was Jonathan Winters. Who was institutionalized in a straight jacket more than once. Sad to hear Robin got sucked down that path. The true comedians that are way way out there...they typically end up in a bad way.

    RIP, thanks for all the laughs!

    Just caught it on the 10pm news & my heart just sank. He was right up their with the best of the best and i got to enjoy most if not all his career for which i am grateful. Can't count the times he broke me up and so doing made my day more worthwhile.

    Thanks for the fun stuff Robin & hopefully you find peace in your new adventure.

    You'll be remembered.

    We may all be unique little snowflakes, but he stood out more than most, and there sure as hell won't be another like him. Its so frustrating to see a person that could make so many people happy suffer with depression on such a level that he would end his own life.

    I was watching "Good Will Hunting" when I learned last night, it was a surreal coincidence as I haven's seen him in a movie for quite some time.
