LAUGH IT UP AS TIME LIFE PROMOTES STAYING HOME AND LAUNCHES THE OFFICIAL ROBIN WILLIAMS YOUTUBE CHANNEL, CELEBRATING THE ICON’S INIMITABLE GENIUS
The Channel is now a Digital Home for Williams’ Classic Sketches and Exclusive Extras, with Five Clips and Debuts a New Clip Each Week!
This April Fools’ Day, the comedy connoisseurs at Time Life launched The Official Robin Williams YouTube Channel, celebrating Robin’s comic genius. Whether you know Robin from the stage or from the screen, as a comedian, an alien, or a genie-home audiences can subscribe to the channel and be prepared to laugh and cry at unforgettable and hilarious performances by the singular talent.
Upon launch, the channel features classic live performance clips hand-picked from Robin’s HBO stand-up specials, including his uproarious sketch on the beginnings of golf (Live on Broadway, 2002), his emotional “Spark of Madness” (Off the Wall, 1978) and a hilarious and detailed account of his run-in with the famous signing gorilla, Koko (Live on Broadway).
Also featured at launch are exclusive, recently shot interview clips with comedian Lewis Black on “Becoming Friends with Robin Williams” and David Steinberg, Williams’ longtime manager and friend holding forth with an “Inside Look on Robin Williams’ Genius.” Each week following the launch, the comedy mavens at Time Life will post a brand new clip to the channel.
Of the channel, Steinberg says, “What a great time to enjoy the gift of Robin’s genius. Who doesn’t need a laugh?”
