The Funniest, Saddest Robin Williams Video You’ll See
Oh, it is so sad. It seems like comedians always have such a dark side. We will miss this great comedian and actor. His stand-up and his movies are a really great way to practice your English because he changes dialects and he speaks really, really fast! Also, I always say if you understand comedy in a different language you’ve gotten that language.
This video featuring Robin Williams is a clip from the U.S. comedy Louie. It’s not well known outside of the U.S. It’s incredibly poignant, as it deals with death. It’a a little long, but worth watching. I think it’s probably one of the funniest, saddest things that’s been on television here in some time.
