Robin Williams: ‘Comedy Cyclone’ Burst Out of 1970s L.A. Club Scene

12 August 2014 3:18 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Robin Williams honed his zany, rapid-fire comedic persona in the hothouse environment of Los Angeles comedy clubs in the mid- to late-1970s.

Even in an scene that nurtured such notables as David Letterman, Andy Kaufman, Jay Leno, Richard Lewis, Sam Kinison, Elayne Boosler, Tom Dreesen and George Miller, Williams’ unique style made a huge impression. From the start, Williams was endowed with the incredible ad-lib and improv skills that friends and fans have hailed as comic genius since his death Monday of suicide at age 63.

“He seemed to be omnipresent back then and was a topic of discussion wherever he went,” said author-humorist Merrill Markoe. He was a tough act for other comedians to follow — akin to a “comedy cylone,” she added. “In his act, he was id, ego and super-ego all at the same time.”

Off stage, there was a gentleness to Williams that was always quite the contrast to his hyper-kinetic performances. »

Inside Robin Williams's Private Struggles - And His Comedic Genius

12 August 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Robin Williams could do it all: make an audience helpless with laughter, move them to tears, astound filmmakers with take after take of improvised comic genius. "He was a guy who had the highest of highs while performing," Bob Zmuda, the creator of the Comic Relief charity, tells People. "But when he walked off that stage and went back to the dressing room alone, he could face the lowest of lows."

Hans Zimmer Tribute at the Annenberg Raises $1.2 Million for Israel Philharmonic

17 July 2014 2:44 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Two giants in their respective fields, Hans Zimmer and Zubin Mehta, held court Wednesday night at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, where Zimmer was bestowed a lifetime achievement award by the American Friends of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, for which Mehta is co-chairman and holds the post of music director for life.

But it was Zimmer — perhaps the closest thing to a mogul in the scoring realm — who was clearly humbled by the honor. “I was a little nervous about a world-class orchestra playing Schubert (Symphonia N° 8, Unfinished) and Zimmer, and Schubert is a real composer,” Zimmer told Variety. “And just seeing how they really knew my stuff and they loved it. There was this bond.”

The lavish, black-tie affair — consisting of a concert by the orchestra of mostly Zimmer movie compositions, and a Wolfgang Puck-catered supper in the Center’s courtyard afterward — raised approximately $1.2 million for the Israel Philharmonic, »
