Following the endless love that keeps surfacing after comedian and actor Robin Williams was found dead on Monday, we featured a slew of stories, kind words and fond farewells to the Oscar-winning actor. But the overwhelming and emotional tributes are still pouring in, especially from comedians who worked with him countless times over the years. Late night hosts Jimmy Fallon and Conan O'Brien were both visibly shaken by this loss, and each of them shared their own tribute on their respective shows last night. Fallon does his trademark impression while Conan shares a story that will bring a year to your eye. Watch below!
Here's Jimmy Fallon's tribute to Robin Williams on "The Tonight Show" last night:
And here's Conan O'Brien's touching story about the comedian from Team Coco:
Both of these tributes show two incredible sides of Robin Williams, from his wacky late night antics that were always full of energy and craziness, to his seemingly endless generosity as he brought joy in many forms. What makes Conan's story in particular so touching is that Williams didn't even know Conan that well, and yet here's this incredibly thoughtful and even hilarious gift that he received. That's the mark of a man who was always looking to cheer everyone up and just create happiness. It's just a shame it wasn't enough to keep him away from the darkness in the end. This one is going to hurt us all for a long time.

Fallon showed pretty good composure during his monologue. That impression was almost spot on. I don't think anyone could touch Williams' speed. He was a bullet. Even other manic comics like Jim Carey don't hold a candle to the wit of Robin Williams.

My kid is two, and his generation has been robbed of the greatest entertainer that ever lived. No actor or performer can touch the acting prowess of Robin Williams. Remembering his performance in What Dreams May Come, and hoping for reincarnation. RIP.

That's the beauty of cinema. Your kid (and your kid's kids) can enjoy all the same Robin Williams movies you enjoyed.
