    Pure genius.  That’s up there with Frankie Boyle’s bit about Margaret Thatcher and her state-funded funeral.

    I was worried when Crystal showed up because I thought he was just there to plug his new show but it turns out he wanted to tell some long anecdotes about ex-presidents and dead comedians. What a (comic?) relief.

    Even when he’s gone, Robin still can make us laugh… he just has to do it via Billy now

    so if they were talking about one day using these conversations… then they started recording them?   when i first heard of robin’s suicide, the first thing i said to myself was, “shit, we’re going to miss this one.”  a little like george carlin and richard pryor, the world is better with them in it.

    I laughed harder at this than the last few years of Real Time.

    Fuck people for clapping when “Ronald Reagan” says it’s hotter than he thought it would be. Fucking Liberals.

    I miss Robin so much! So sad he felt he had to leave this word all alone…..

    What a phony Billy Crystal is.  Yes Billy, the US was much better off with double digit inflation. Of course Billy being a liberal did nothing to help Robin. He was probably to busy to help an old friend.
