Watch Jimmy Fallon’s Tearful Robin Williams Tribute
The tributes to the late Robin Williams continue to roll in and some of the most heartfelt moments come from his fellow comics.
A stunned Conan O’Brien broke the sad news to his studio audience during a taping on Monday and yesterday night, Jimmy Fallon honored the Academy Award-winning actor with a spot-on impression and a few tears.
“You would watch him, and you would cry laughing,” Fallon said of Williams’ stand-up routine. “And, you would think ‘I’m never going to see anyone like this human, ever.'”
After airing a clip from Williams’ very first Tonight Show appearance with Johnny Carson, Fallon capped off the tribute by standing atop his desk, a nod to Robin Williams’ “O Captain, my Captain” moment in Dead Poets Society.
