Billy Crystal pays Tribute to Robin Williams at the Emmys

Billy Crystal had some very serious and solemn words to say about Robin Williams. He said that the fine actor had literally made everyone laugh their heads off. 

And this wonderful showman appeared in hospitals, amphitheaters, entertainment venues, derelict shelters and on TV as well as in the movies. 

“He made us laugh. Hard. Every time you saw him on television and movies, in nightclubs, arenas, hospitals, homeless shelters, for the troops overseas, and even in a dying girl’s living room for her last wish,” Billy Crystal said in an emotional tribute to Robin Williams at the end of the Emmys In Memoriam segment.

Why, he even entertained the troops who were on tour of duty in a foreign land. And the biggest act of sympathy and heartfelt empathy he had engaged in was granting a dying girl her last wish by making a live appearance in her room. 

Billy suggested that he had spent much time in Robin Williams’ company and he found the comedian to be very hilarious. You could barely contain yourself while he cracked a few good ones. 

“I spent many happy hours with Robin on stage. I used to think if I could just put a saddle on (him) and stay on eight seconds I was going to be okay. He was the greatest friend you could ever imagine – supportive, protective, loving,” Crystal said.

Robin Williams was a giving, loving and caring individual whose warmth shone from the inside out. “It’s very hard to talk about him in the past, because he was so present, in all our lives,” Billy said. “For almost 40 years,” Crystal concluded, “he was the brightest star in the comedy galaxy.” 

Billy furthermore spoke of how Robin had a historyin the comedic arts that spanned more than a generation. He made people smile and take interest with style and passion. The fact that he had committed suicide in the end was really tragic. Robin Williams had been not only in the grip of severe depression but he also had Parkinson’s disease. 

This suffering soul took all the chaos and madness of the world and even entered rehab time and time again. Yet the fact that he gave up in the end only proves that he was human. 

And that shows the beauty of the human spirit which is fragile and vulnerable instead of cold as steel. Robin was a star and a survivor to the end of his life. 

The pain, pressures and poison of existence he was up against was one that got to him in the end. His death has made the rest of humanity a poorer place without his presence in it. 

May his soul find peace in the afterlife which it unfortunately did not do so in this mundane world!
