Robin Williams Documentary Trailer: An Intimate Portrait of the Comedian

Irene MckinneyJun 10, 2018

It's a walkthrough into Williams' life and career narrated largely by the man himself, and his celebrated peers in the comedy circuit, including Billy Crystal, Steve Martin, Eric Idle, David Letterman and his Mork and Mindy co-star Pam Dawber.

The first trailer for a documentary about the late Robin Williams dropped Thursday. Not many had an inkling that one of the world's funniest entertainers was actually suffering inside.

Williams died from suicide in 2014. I saw this at Sundance, and while it is deeply moving and heartfelt, it's a more straightforward doc and not as clever or unique as I was hoping. The trailer also hints at never-before-seen footage and the depth in which Robin Williams' life be discussed.

"Stand-up is survival", says Williams at the beginning of the clip as behind-the-scenes photos of him appear on the screen. Described by the cable network as "a amusing, intimate and heartbreaking portrait of one of the world's most beloved and inventive comedians", it promises to take viewers through Williams' extraordinary life and career and reveal what drove him to give voice to the characters in his mind.

Williams' family is also a focus of the documentary, with his son Zak Williams sitting down for an interview.

Come Inside My Mind does feature Williams uttering other bits of (resurfaced interview) wisdom, including "You're only given a little spark of madness, and if you lose that, you're nothing".
