Adrian Nicole LeBlanc remembers Robin Williams:

“Williams’s manic permeability may explain why ordinarily loudly wounded comics pretty much gave him a pass when he used their material. Perhaps, too, they let it go because Williams was himself a kind of frequency, flipping through impressions, riffing off of what he found suggestive, which sometimes seemed primarily about the sheer marvel of the speed of his concoction.”
