Robin Williams Performed Brilliant Improvised Routine In Response to Question on ‘Inside the Actors Studio’ in 2001

On a 2001 episode of Inside the Actor’s Studio, host James Lipton asked his guest Robin Williams about his remarkable ability to deploy his quick wit and mental dexterity at such “awesome speed”. Preferring to act out his response, the late comedian left the audience gasping with laughter with a brilliant impromptu routine that partially involved a pink scarf that belonged to an audience member.

Bravo TV will be airing an encore presentation of the full interview on Thursday, August 28.

James Lipton recently remembered Robin fondly in an interview with the Today Show.
