People The sad decline of Robin Williams from the funniest man on earth to Patch Adams was one of the more depressing sights of the past decade. Now Time Magazine are looking at the state of his art and finding someone who, while no longer cutting edge perhaps, still has the power to make you insane: "Even now--especially now, minutes before show time--he is looking for fresh material. A friend of the promoter's comes backstage wearing a shaggy black coat, and immediately Williams is all over her, making barking noises, "look, she is wearing a poodle," then becoming a haughty French grande dame giving fashion commentary. The woman is taken aback and then starts laughing. The stagehands are laughing. Williams is loosening up the only way he knows how: by cracking other people up."
