Robin Williams, what a concept!

While Robin started doing stand-up in the mid-’70s, most of America first fell in love with him as the naïve and hilarious alien from the planet Ork in Mork & Mindy. He became an instant superstar and went on to do five HBO stand-up specials and dozens of feature films. Robin performed steadily for nearly four decades—from comedy clubs to stadiums, from talk shows to USO tours—and continually amazed audiences with his frenetic energy and unbelievably quick wit.

Robin Williams was truly an out-of-this-world talent and now all his most memorable stand-up and television performances are together in one collection, Robin Williams: Comic Genius.

You’ll get 12 DVDs and over 60 performances, including:

  • All five HBO stand-up specials together for the very first time, including Off the Wall (1978), An Evening with Robin Williams (1983), An Evening at the MET (1986), Live on Broadway (2002) and Weapons of Self Destruction (2009)
  • Never-before-released footage from Robin’s USO tours, including appearances by Lewis Black, Kid Rock, and others
  • Robin’s best talk show and late-night TV appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Saturday Night Live, and more!
  • Rare, never-before-seen clips including early stand-up, raw footage from HBO’s promo shoots, a hilarious toast to Richard Pryor by Robin as Mrs. Doubtfire, and more
  • Brand new interviews with close friends and family including Jay Leno, Lewis Black, Pam Dawber, and Robin’s manager, David Steinberg
  • The first six episodes of Mork & Mindy, including the two-part pilot!
  • James Lipton’s Emmy® Award-nominated 90-minute interview with Robin on Inside the Actors Studio, plus deleted scenes
  • Hours of bonus features including behind-the-scenes footage, local highlights from tour stops, promos and more. Featurettes include: The Early Years, San Francisco: Where It All Started, Comic Genius, and TV’s Best Guest
  • Bonus DVD featuring the critically acclaimed 2018 HBO documentary, Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind from Emmy® Award-winning director Marina Zenovich and Oscar-winning producer Alex Gibney.
