VIRAL: 10 Times Robin Williams Proved He Was The Funniest Man On The Planet!



There’s a fine line between tragedy and comedy, which is a fact Robin Williams knew more than most. On the second anniversary of Williams’ death, it’s easy to get bogged down in the feels and forget that Robin made us laugh far more often than he made us cry. From Mrs Doubtfire, to Aladdin, to Jumanji, Robin’s film credits are full to the brim with total hilarity.

It makes sense, then, that Robin Williams truly earned the title of one of the world’s funniest men both on and off the screen. The following is a list of Williams’ most hilarious quotes, revealing exactly why the entire world was so sad to lose such an icon.


1. On Jesus

“Some people say Jesus wasn’t Jewish. Of course he was Jewish! Thirty years old, single, lives with his parents, come on. He works in his father’s business, his mom thought he was God’s gift, he’s Jewish. Give it up.”

2. On fighting

“Never fight with an ugly person. They’ve got nothing to lose.”


3. On tattoos

“You know, you get that tattoo of a barbed wire when you’re 18, but by the time you’re 80, it’s a picket fence.”

4. On cocaine

“Cocaine is God’s way of saying you’re making too much money.”

If that wasn’t quite enough Williams-related goodness for one day, then head right on over to the next page for the star’s thoughts on platypuses, rush hour and divorce.

5. On platypuses

“Do you think God gets stoned? I think so… look at the platypus.”

6. On rush hour

“Why do they call it rush hour when nothing moves?”


7. On cricket

“Cricket is basically basketball on valium.”

8. On divorce

“Divorce is expensive. I used to joke they were going to call it ‘all the money,’ but they changed it to ‘alimony.’”

If you want to discover what Williams thinks about Germany, comedy and politics, then I’d advise you to stop everything and head right on over to the next page.

9. On Germany

“I was once on a German talk show, and this woman said to me, ‘Mr. Williams, why do you think there is not so much comedy in Germany?’ And I said, ‘Did you ever think you killed all the funny people?’”

10. On politics

 “Politics: ‘Poli’ a Latin word meaning ‘many’; and ‘tics’ meaning ‘bloodsucking creatures’.”


The death of Robin Williams affected everyone, from regular everyday people to full-blown, A-list celebrities. Somewhere in between the two, British TV presenter Paul O’Grady voiced his sadness about Williams’ passing back in 2014.

If you’re still not 100 per cent convinced about your love for Williams, then I’d advise you to take a look at  what happened when the Mrs Doubtfire star met Koko the talking gorilla. It’s almost definitely the most adorable thing you’ll see all day.
