Massive Robin Williams DVD Box Set Celebrates the Comedian's Legacy

Massive Robin Williams DVD Box Set Celebrates the Comedian's Legacy
The late, great Robin Williams is being celebrated with a brand new, massive DVD box set covering his entire career. The new set, titled Robin Williams: Comedic Genius, comes with over 50 hours of footage, which includes more than 100 performances across various mediums from talks shows to stand-up specials. For fans of Williams, this may be a must-have.

We tragically lost Robin Williams in 2014, but few performers are capable of leaving such a lasting impact. Not an ounce of love for the man behind classics such as Mrs. Doubtfire, Good Will Hunting and the unforgettable Genie from Aladdin has faded in the years since his passing. For those who might like to see material from Robin Williams they might otherwise have a difficult time tracking down, here's everything included in the Robin Williams: Comedic Genius box set.

Watch Mary Elizabeth Winstead Impersonate Bjork and Kristen Stewart in All About Nina Scene

Watch Mary Elizabeth Winstead Impersonate Bjork and Kristen Stewart in All About Nina Scene
Saturday Night Live might have some competition in Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

The actress, 33, plays a struggling comedian in her new film, All About Nina, and as proven in an exclusive clip from the drama, Winstead can do some killer impersonations.

In the scene, Winstead as troubled Nina, takes to the stage at a comedy club to do not one — but five impressions. The setup: celebrities ordering smoothies.

Winstead’s take on Bjork is no doubt the standout, with the actress nailing the Icelandic singer’s unique inflections. At a close second is her inspired riff on Kristen Stewart’s famous awkwardness.

Chevy Chase Rips Into Saturday Night Live and Bashes The Hell Out of It

I’ll be honest, I don’t find Saturday Night Live really that funny these days. I loved watching the show back in the 90s and I enjoyed all of the earlier seasons prior to that. It was just filled with all kinds of hilarious humor that today’s world probably wouldn’t find funny these days due to how much more sensitive people are now.

There are skits in those early years and even in the 90s and early 2000s that would never, in a million years, fly today. These days people feel they need to be careful what they joke about and in my opinion, nothing really funny comes from playing it safe. Comedy isn’t about playing it safe! But that’s the world that we live in now.

Chevy Chase, who is one of the original SNL cast members, recently gave an interview in which he
