Bob Saget and Robin Williams documentary
There is a documentary made on the life of comedian Robin Williams who died in 2014 by suicidal hanging. Bob Saget was also Robin’s friend and saw the documentary as a means for catharsis. He saw the premiere of HBO last month. He said:
“I thought it was quite beautiful, quite touching and quite painful. I knew him for years, and he was beautiful. I met him when I was 21, and he was a sweetheart and brilliant. God help you if you were onstage with him, but it’s a tragic, tragic loss. Everybody feels his loss. The whole world felt his loss. That’s a big chasm. We need more of him and less of cruelty.”
