WATCHED ROBIN WILLIAMS IN THE EARLY DAYS
FAKE COCAINE STAND UP ACT WAS STOLEN
This was the case before and after Mork & Mindy made him a star. One night in nearby San Carlos at the razed Circle Star Theater, Williams opened for a musical act and as he left the circular stage, he was physically attacked by fellow comedian Steve Pearl and got punched a few times. You won’t read this anywhere else, but Pearl was livid that Robin went on TV with Johnny Carson and stole the high point of Pearl’s act, a powdered face ending.
NOT ONLY COMIC THAT STOLE JOKES
Not that Williams would need to steal material, but he did and the way Pearl’s career went up in flames after beating Robin up is something I can’t forget.
A true genius yes, but Williams did steal Pearl’s act and once you put it on TV, it’s yours whether or not it was. In recent years, Carlos Mencia was pounded on by George Lopez, this after Mencia did the Lopez act on HBO.
WILLIAMS FUELED BY COCAINE & DEPRESSION
Speaking of Cocaine, to say that Williams abused Colombian Dust would be a great understatement. One night he was in the toilet stall at the Punch Line in San Francisco he walked out of a stall occupied by three people and they were all doing blow. Not even hiding, Williams went to the sink and snorted up some water which is how you follow up nasal ingestion.
ROBIN WILLIAMS TALKING ‘BOUT COCAINE
“Cocaine is God’s way of telling you that you’re making too much money.” The Coroner’s Report when filed will rule that the cause of death was “Hanging by Suicide.” We wish his family the best and thank Robin for his contributions to the world at large. The times I saw him, he was always fan friendly and seemingly always in character. Robin Williams was 63 years old and suffered from Depression.
