How Robin Williams Inspired Me Into Comedy And Radio

I can’t believe we are even talking about the death of Robin Williams. To be honest, when I first read the news last night I thought it was a hoax. Sadly, he did pass, and now the world is in mourning. I’m devastated for his family, friends, and fans. 

Williams was loved by fans of all ages. Like Polly worded earlier: “From ‘Aladdin’ to ‘Mrs Doubtfire,’ the actor made everyone laugh. Williams could also make us cry, playing serious roles in ‘Awakenings’ and ‘Good Will Hunting.”

‘Mrs Doubtfire’ is one of the first movies I ever remember watching as a kid. I remember laughing and thinking how funny he truly was. It got me interesting in his other films, and how he was able to create such impressive characters in his movies. I credit Williams to getting me interested in stand up comedy, and acting itself. The way he was able to pull off some of the funniest moments in entertainments history, and stay in character the WHOLE time, was very impressive. I tried countless times to pull of characters in our drama club how Williams was able too, and Chevy Chase. I had some success.

I remember being a junior in High School and watching ‘Good Morning Vietnam’ for the first time, around the time I was debating getting into broadcasting. I understand it was a movie, but it had me thinking of how amazing it could be to entertain people on a microphone. I credit this movie for getting me more interested into the career path I am in today. Yes I don’t shout into the mic, but I’m able to make others laugh on a daily basis.
