Personal Quote:

[on Robin Williams] Robin and I were great friends, suffering from the same little-known disease, depression. I never could have expected this ending to his life, and to ours with him. I cannot believe this. I am overwhelmed with grief. What a wonderful man/boy, and what a tremendous talent in the most important art of any time - comedy! I loved him. See more »

Trivia:

Was the first person to say "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!" on Saturday Night Live (1975). See more »
