Comedy – 1981 – Special – Robin Williams – Live At The Great American Music Hall In San Francisco

DOG PHILOSOPHY: 

As the years pass by….I have become increasingly aware of how thin the line is between “genius and insanity” and “comedy and tragedy” …..as our vintage video library has provided sufficient evidence to my point….and none more poignant than Robin Williams….whom as a comedian, I consider with the “best of the best”….cuz it doesn’t matter when or where I get to watch Robin Williams the comedian….my sides actually start to hurt from laughing so hard….I mean CRAMPS!!! 

Robin Williams was pure genius….the kind that seemed to bounce like a lil leprechaun from character to character….or for that matter from planet to planet….sprinkling “magical pixie dust” everywhere his feet landed…..a true gift to the world to make people laugh….yet “demons of insanity” enough to take his own life….so, you talk about a thin line between “comedy and tragedy”  

Can you imagine being married to Robin….you’d never know who you were talking with….it could be Mork from another planet….or Pops the newspaper salesman….next, it could be his penis talking you….or a dog down the street….or Boris the Russian….or a Scottish soldier….for you just would never know who would come out next….and like how can you be mad at a person that always makes you laugh.

So, I have come to this conclusion….which is actually a philosophy that guides my like today….for in its simplicity lies understanding worthy of great consideration….cuz in regards to all things conceivable within our world….YOU SIMPLY CANNOT HAVE A TOP WITHOUT A BOTTOM….so, within the grades of genius exist the grades of insanity….which when understood by any person….becomes a philosophy of life that each and every day that comes our way is life….we should embrace the good and the bad….the simple and the difficult….the happy and the sad…..the in and the out….the genius and the insanity….and the comedy and the tragedy….while understanding that there is much to be learned….from both the top and the bottom….for learning is the true gift of life….and no one escapes it.   Robin Williams, like all of us on this Earth, are indeed genius and insanity….and comedy and tragedy….and our job in life is to learn about those things and all things in between.
