Yet he can't becasue even though he does to some extent in the book people still think he is a figure of fun. I know he laughs along most of the time but it can't really be much fun when people come out with those remarks. And most people who make the remarks are laughing at him, not with him. Whatever people may think or say he is only human. But I guess thats celebrity for you.
Yes, exactly. Any public figure is open to criticism, snide remarks, jokes, etc., along with all the praise and accolades and awards and tons of money they make. And if that's the worse thing they can think to say about him, it's not that bad, I don't think. I've heard much worse said about others.
And he did do what he wanted, which was to write his story and show the person behind the myth, etc. So at least he got that accomplished while still here on this earth.

2002, according to various sites like IMdB, amazon, etc. I just remember seeing it on HBO probably around 2003 or so. It's called 'Robin Williams: Live on Broadway' (2002).

You must feel similar to how I feel about Ricky G's horrid treatment of Johnny at the Golden Globes, which some people find enormously funny and Johnny seems to have taken with good grace. Humor can be a very individual matter.
Yes and I also didn't like that either
I didn't either, even though I love RG. But as with all the people I truly admire and love, I stick with them through times when I might not agree with what they're saying or doing. I don't 'throw the baby out with the bathwater', so to speak, and for me, there's too much to love and admire and enjoy about RG to start instantly hating him for what he said at the Globes about my favorite guy in the world. I was so glad when Johnny showed that he apparently felt the same way, and he was the butt of the joke! Some people are just too cool and brilliant and original to dismiss, no matter if they royally screw up now and then....like Keith, for example.
