See here’s the thing, when something like this happens you think “If a wonderful man like this who had so much- money, fame, opportunities, family, friends- can’t make it, what chance do I have?” Or maybe that’s just me.
I guess some folks get more than a little :-/ For all the creative gifts being bipolar can bring it’s a pretty vindictive gift. RIP Robin.
Sadly, I think it’s a lot like Jonathan Winters. It’s the bit of madness part of the brain that connects to the comedic genius part that connects to the depression/suicidal/bi-polar part.
Maybe there’s madness in that incredibly artistic gene.
Excuse me while I go cut off my ear.
Nevermind. I forget I have no talent. Artistic or otherwise.
His madness overwhelmed him. Depression sucks. Just goes to show no one is immune to it. And the harder people hide it, the deeper it runs.
Am devastated. He has always been an inspiration and a role model. His illness was a bitch.
There will never be anyone like him. No one could ever say “Fossy, Fossy, Martha Graham, Martha Graham, Martha Graham!” the way he did!
Words can’t convey how much he will be missed.
Depression is a bitch. I loved your work, you crazy bastard. Now I guess I’ll just have to wait to get to the other side to enjoy it some more. Hopefully, it’ll be a long wait.
I hope so too.
There seems to be a high incidence of depression in the comic type of people. Makes you wonder if their comedy genius is simply their way to cope with their misery. The rest of us drink – which doesn’t make nearly as much of a living…
Thank God for gin.
Nothing can be said to make it better. Farewell
RIP Robin, you will be missed. Depression is such a terrible illness. To all the people calling him a coward and worse I wish they could suffer for just one day the pain he went through. It might change their attitude, then again it might not.
Who called him a coward? I’ll kick their ass. Oh and did you hear that the Westboro Church loonies are going to be at his funeral? Anything for attention, but I still hope they get their asses handed to them.
That’s the shits about life. No matter who you are, the last act is never funny.
