Billy Crystal & Jimmy Fallon Reminisce About the Late Robin Williams
After giving a heartfelt Emmy tribute to his friend and comedic partner in crime Robin Williams, fellow comedian Billy Crystal stopped by "The Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon, and they both reminisced about the legend we lost. Both Fallon and Crystal each share stories involving Williams and his wild antics, including a bus trip to the Kennedy Center with Martin Short, Rob Reiner, Jon Lovitz, Danny DeVito and Williams himself making fun of some of the bad movies he made, which launched a whole series of jokes from the rest of the bus. It's hilarious but bittersweet, and you can tell Crystal really misses his good friend.
Here's Jimmy Fallon and Billy Crystal talking about Robin Williams on "The Tonight Show" last night:
Who wouldn't give anything to have one of those long, random phone calls with Williams, playing some kind of weird character. As Crystal remembers their exchanges on the phone, "When were finished we were like two jazz musicians who got new horns." That story Crystal shares about Comedy Relief with Michael Dukakis and Williams' always bold comedy style is just perfect. Not a day has passed so far where Williams hasn't been on my mind at least once. Crystal says it best, "It's not even two months and even saying 'he was' is hard for me. It's hard for all of us." Robin Williams, you continue to be missed, thanks for the memories.
Billy Crystal is a hero. I need more films with his brilliance. One of the few guys that could go tit for tat with Williams.
