Robin Williams: Weapons of Self Destruction (2009)
In Williams’ last HBO special, he gets into healthcare and heart surgery at DAR Constitution Hall.

70th Academy Awards (1998) After three nominations, Williams finally took home an acting Oscar for his performance in Good Will Hunting. He’s emotional, over-the-moon excited, and, though he jokes that he’s “uncharacteristically speechless,” witty as always.

Robin Williams on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1981) His first appearance on The Tonight Show, Williams gives a veritable stand up-worthy performance just chatting with Johnny Carson, who’s in stitches for most of the interview.

Carson also requested that Williams be the final comedian to appear on his show before he retired in 1992. It’s a classic.

Reddit AMA (2013) Williams reveals his favorite celebrity to impersonate (“Oh my god, Jack Nicholson. He once was with me at a benefit and leaned over and said, ‘Even oysters have enemies.’ In a very intense voice. I responded with ‘Increase your dosage.'”) and his favorite impersonation of himself (“Dana Carvey does my personal favorite impression of myself. It’s accurate. And kind.”).

Jimmy Kimmel Live! (2013)
Williams helps his Good Will Hunting co-star and perpetual Jimmy Kimmel target Matt Damon come up with some jokes.
