I don’t know what I can say that hasn’t already been said a million times over.
When I was little, I had Mork suspenders from Mork & Mindy.
In junior high, my grandmother bought me a cassette of Live at the Met that I listened to over and over and over and over.
I can still, to this day, quote quotes from Good Morning Vietnam. “Hot enough in my shorts I can cook in them. A little ‘crotch pot’ cookin’.”
In high school, I cried at the end of Hook. When the little girl wakes up and sees her parents. If it was on right now, I’d cry.
When I first started working at Disneyland in 1993, merchandise with The Genie from Aladdin on it was the majority of what I used my cast member discount on.
After college, into my stand up years, I always totally respected the stories I’d hear of Robin just popping in to small hole in the wall places (The Mock Cafe in San Francisco) and watching comedy and doing a set. So amazing that a star would do that.
Thank you Robin.
Thank you for a lifetime of laughs.
