About Robin Williams (1951 - 2014)

Robin Williams was born as Robin McLaurin Williams in Chicago. Tragically, he died on August 11, 2014 by his own hand, hanging himself in a closet in his home. He enrolled at Juilliard in New York to study theater under teacher John Houseman, who told Robin that he was wasting his talent at Juilliard, and should go out on the road as a stand-up comic.

In 1978, after a guest appearance on Happy Days, Robin Williams was offered the part of Mork, for a new series, Mork and Mindy, a role that brought him fame.

Many people know him as the Genie in the Disney classic, Aladdin, a hysterical part that added a lot of enjoyment to the feature cartoon.

Besides being incredibly gifted as a improvisational comic, Robin has proven to be a talented dramatic actor as well. Mrs. Doubtfire, Dead Poet Society, The World According to Garp, Patch Adams, Hook, and Jumanji offer the audience fine examples of his ability to make us laugh and care at the same time.
