As the world mourns the loss of the 63-year-old acting genius, we're taking a look back at some of his earlier work as a hilarious stand-up actor.
Before he was 'Mork' to Pam Dawber's 'Mindy,' before he went hunting for good will, and before we all felt empowered to Carpe that Diem, Williams was quite a force to be reckoned with.
As he rose to fame, he often returned to the stage, reminding us time and time again that he was a man who didn't need a supporting cast.
