'Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind'

Give Robin Williams a stage – or simply an audience of one or more people – and the comedian would give you rapid-fire, stream-of-consciousness jokes/rants that were breathtaking in its scope and sheer manic energy. In front of crowds and onscreen, the Juilliard-trained performer released a barrage of jokes, voices, characters that pummeled you into hysterics; offstage, he could sometimes be moody, distant, desperate to stave off depression through the drug of cracking people up (and during the Seventies, through actual drugs). No stranger to profiling volatile stand-ups, Marina Zenovich (Richard Pryor: Omit the Logic) curates clips of his act and interviews with everyone from fellow stand-ups to Williams' first wife Valerie Velardi to examine what made this comic force of nature tick.
