Robin is not dead, guys. He's just in Jumanji waiting for someone to roll a 5 or an 8.

1. The world has never been the same since Robin left.
2. Craig needs to get back to late night talk show television.
3. I've lost count of how many times I've watched this.

He would have been 69 today. I like to think he would have cracked a joke about that.
I feel like Craig is the only host who gets Robin, and can keep up with his fast tempo. Robin obviously always runs the interview, but Craig actually makes Robin genuinely laugh, and it's amazing to see how happy he is :) Craig and Robin are the best!

"Knock knock"


Probably the best German joke I have ever heard lol
I met Robin Williams at an Apple store in Manhattan once. I was very confused cause no one was recognizing him and I didn't want to bother him.
But worked up some courage and asked for a picture and he was super kind.
Still surprised no one came up to him even after I took the picture

The greatest improvisational comedic stroke ever on TV history. 26 minutes of non-stop genius, nothing scripted.
the happiest souls, are the most broken inside treat everyone with love and care.
Still breaks my heart. What a lovable man he was. Ya just wanna shake his hand and say thank you for everything

The pacing of this interview is insane. Pretty much 25 minutes straight of a joke ever 2-5 seconds. No rest.
what mr rogers was to children williams was to adults.

I will never ever forget "did you ever think you killed all the funny people?"

The chemistry between these two was just absolutely astounding.
God, the chemistry was PHENOMENAL. They didnt give me enough time to laugh 😭😭

One thing I have learned about Robin Williams and Jim Carrey. It sounds simple and cliche, but laughter is the best medicine. If you are making people laugh, or laughing at a comedian. These two gentleman suffer/suffered from crippling depression and found that making people laugh really helped their wellbeing and therefore, they honed their craft and did their thing the best way they knew how.
That was the realization I had today personally....

See, I had a really crappy day yesterday...lots of bad things happened and I just wanted to find some lightness in the darkness. I am pretty funny in nature and 50% of the time positive and optimistic. So, today I just happened to find a funny thing to say to a co-worker and I executed the joke and received a big genuine laugh. I felt a surge of endorphins a quick boost in my mood. I felt liked and appreciated. All I needed.
See...being funny, thinking funny *really* helped me.
From now on, I am going to commit to really push through and find the funny next time I sense a dark time coming. I got this.
Maybe this mindset can help someone else out there who is struggling? I am so sad Robin left us, and reader you will be missed too even if it doesn't feel like it now, so take care of yourself and try to find the funny. Seek out humour always.
I've never been so upset over the death of a person I've never met. I never felt emotional over a celebrity's death until we lost Robin.
I genuinely miss the guy.

It's rare indeed for an American actor to master any British accent, let alone a whole range of accents from all across the country. Superb talent.

The death of this guy would have affected me a lot if he died of a car accident or natural causes, but because he suicided, it broke my heart. He was probably my favorite actor, the funniest guy i know...and thinking he had so much sadness and problems that he had to commit suicide just breaks my heart. I loved this guy, i still do.

Only those with ADHD will understand, but I’m absolutely certain these two have/had it, they are so brilliantly able to feed off each other it’s absolutely amazing, 10 minutes later Craig says “did you say Chlamydia your Dad is here” that was great. Anyway 26 minutes and I was glued to the screen the entire time, and had great laughs, great medicine as I’ve been depressed lately. Thanks guys!!

its soo rare to see robin being entertained by somebody else with the same kind of energy, usually everyone was laughing at him, so its kind of cool to see him laughing at someone else genuinely surprised by the laugh it self.

Sees title: skeptical
5 minutes in: *oh, this is the greatest interview in the history of television. I see. Ok yeah.*
I hope people watch this for the next twenty years.
21:55 "Chlamydia, your dad's here!" by Robin Williams, and since they're doing rapid-fire jokes non-stop, it takes till 25:11 for Craig to realise the full impact of one of his best jokes when Robin recalls it, and when he does, he is absolutely lost to the world. When you can make a fellow pro comedian laugh, you know you've made gold. ^_^

I got to be security for Robin Williams in Kandahar Afghanistan in 2010. sweetest man ever. RIP good sir.
craig is the only interviewer i've seen capable to consistently make robin laugh and riff with him.
Mustache Walrus
Mustache Walrus:
Craig is the best wingman in the business, that's why they gave him a show, because the guests actually like his presence. With out him being so open and aware of his surroundings and suggestions, none of what made the show great in it's final days would of happened. That includes the horse and all the antics with Josh Robert Thompson (AKA Geoff Peterson the Robot Skeleton and every other puppet or celebrity impression on the show)
If I ever see the likes of another Robin Williams, then I can safely say I've had two lifetimes.
Aditya Rao
Aditya Rao:
Its like they're both synchronized together no script no prepared questions just pure unscripted comedy.

CRAIG FERGUSON, i have seen SO MANY of your shows, and in none of them do you seem more free than this one. When Robin Williams came to town you guys had such an amazing chemistry. I can't be more serious. Watching you two is one of the most entertaining things i can think of. i absolutely love it. Even though i've seen this interview literally 100 times I still come back for more. Sincerely, Thank You.

Rest In Peace Robin Williams. The world lost THE BEST COMEDIAN when you left. That is no joke or exaggeration. You are my idol and i love you and i wish you were still here. Honestly im getting choked up just saying this.

Craig and Robin, i love you both.

I miss you Robin. Thank you for everything :)

Wow! Mr. Ferguson was the only host that could keep up with Robin Williams. I've seen Williams interviews with other hosts and even the best of them, like Conan O'Brien and David Letterman, mostly just let Robin do his thing without much interaction. Craig Ferguson showed serious skills here.

those two doing a two man act together would have been awesome
I’m watching on the sixth anniversary of his passing. Still not over it.

"knock knock" "WE ASK THE QUESTIONS HERE!" 😂😂😂 Happy 69th birthday Robin we miss you
Craig is the only TV Host who can keep up with the great Robin!. Not only that, he injected some wicked Humour to further elevate the moments to another level to which Robin then gladly took it up yet another notch up! We miss you Robin...and we will always love you. Thx Craig for an excellent job well done here too interviewing Robin!

Robin was indeed a force of nature.
If this man can transmit this kind of positive vibes over a video, i can only imagine what it would be like to be near him.

Craig was the only one who was ever able to keep pace with the master.
I was skeptical when it said “the best interview of all time”....

Indeed it was.

Carpe Diem my captain. Loved his style, his one liners, his laughter, taking the piss out of everything that was ever serious in life, but most of just loved Robin Williams as him ever since I first watched Mork and Mindy. What an actor, an improviser, the best that was ever seen and in my lifetime will never be seen again. Nan Noo Nan Noo.
The way these guys are so naturally talking to each other like old friends, it's like I'm watching a livestream @ a coffee shop
My heart smiles then cries a little everytime I watch a clip of his

Nothing better than watching Robing truly enjoying himself and laughing. Props to Craig who is probably one of the few who could get him to be so relaxed and jovial!!!
I have never seen two people talking continuously with the same energy so much!!
Fabio Bianchi
Fabio Bianchi:
He is just Perfect, and Craig Ferguson is the only one able to stay all 26 minutes in a supporting position, never above the line and never below though. Craig never felt the need to pretend to be good in front of such a majesty of a person..This is something anyone should watch any now and then to reconcile with life.

Clamidia. It's Greek but at the same time its slightly uncomfortable.
This really is the best interview in the history of television. Thank you for putting this out there.
Legendary. I love how Craig can keep up with Robin, without missing a beat.

25:50 Craig takes a breath after keeping up with Robin all night. Well deserved
"I wondered why I was hungry." This man's mind was so damn sharp... Such a pioneer...Such a gift... RIP
Have to come back and edit this, Craig and Robin seem like simply wonderful friends here...Super natural... I feel sad...

25:15 That part in the end where Craig completely loses it when he remembers the "Chlamydia, your dad's here" bit has me howling with laughter every time. I'm impressed that he managed to keep up with Robin for almost half an hour.
Robin is Peter Pan he just left to the Neverland...leaving us fools in this mad world
