Billy Crystal to Finally Speak About Robin Williams Death at the 66th Annual Emmy Awards

Premiere Of Magnolia Pictures' "World's Greatest Dad" - Arrivals

On the day the news hit the headlines that Oscar-winning actor and comedy legend Robin Williams took his own life unexpectedly after a recent diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease, friend and fellow funny man Billy Crystal tweeted, simply, “No Words.” And Crystal had none for weeks, at least in the world of Twitter, after hearing the news.

On the 66th Annual Emmy Awards, Billy Crystal has been asked to give a tribute to his comic peer Robin Williams. The tribute is eagerly awaited and is expected to be poignant and sharp, in the spirit of both comedians. Billy Crystal, Whoppie Goldberg and Robin Williams teamed up in Comic Relief, raising $80 million for the needy. The two appeared in the 1996 film of Kenneth Branagh’s Hamlet, with Crystal playing a jokey gravedigger and Williams as Osric. Williams and Crystal also co-starred in the 1997 film, Father’s Day.
