Robin Williams (Good Morning Vietnam) was a comedic genius who left us all too soon.  He was truly one of a kind.  He could famously go off on a tangent and make almost anything funny.  You couldn't help but smile and laugh when you saw his standup routines and he made a name for himself in major motion pictures even winning an Oscar...
