Robin WilliamsTo quote Eric Deggans from his NPR piece this morning:

“For many years, Robin Williams seemed like a talent who had no off switch. From his standup comedy work to TV roles to talk show appearances to Oscar-caliber movies and performances on Broadway, Williams was a dervish of comedy — tossing off one-liners, biting asides and sidesplitting routines in a blizzard of accents, attitudes and goodhearted energy.” You can read the full piece here.

I, among many, will miss him dearly.

His brilliance is unmatched.
