Robin Williams, the amazingly talented comedian and an Oscar-winning dramatic actor, passed away this week. He earned the nickname “the wildman of comedy” by doing such zany things as impersonating voices in rapid succession as well as for veering off topic during serious interviews. If you are a fan you will remember your favorite jokes, characters and one-liners from his varied repertoire.  If you would like to learn more about the breadth and depth of his career, as well as his sometimes-troubled life, go to the Gale Biography in Context database.
