Robin Williams, who died yesterday from an apparent suicide at 63, is known for so many incredible movie roles — from the hilarious and erratic to the occasionally more somber and serious. But we’d like to take a moment to appreciate one of the smaller, quieter moments in his impressive, loud career: an appearance on the improv comedy show Whose Line Is It Anyway? back in 2000.
The show’s wacky, anything-goes style proved to be the perfect platform to show off Williams’ signature manic comedy. He managed to light up the room without upstaging his fellow performers, helping create a memorable and delightfully entertaining episode. Check out some of his best moments below.
