Robin Williams documentary trailer debuts with rare footage of the late comedian

‘Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind’ HBO Documentary – First Trailer Out

Not many had an inkling that one of the world's funniest entertainers was actually suffering inside.

The film features contributions from Williams' family as well as comedic peers such as Steve Martin, Billy Crystal and Eric Idle.

Williams died by taking his own life in August 2014 when he was 63 years of age. Martin then acknowledges that Williams, on stage, was "a master", but "off stage, it felt like he was holding himself together".

The first trailer for the upcoming HBO documentary on Robin Williams is here, showcasing the highs and lows of the late comedian from the people who knew him best.

In the trailer, the comedian says "stand-up is survival".




See the trailer above.

Directed by Marina Zenovich, the documentary debuted at this year's Sundance for Zenovich's third time and earned rave reviews from critics, now holding a 100% rating on review aggregate Rotten Tomatoes based on 10 reviews. "But he was the most successful person I know".

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". The network describes it as, "A amusing, intimate and heartbreaking portrait of one of the world's most beloved and inventive comedians". There are also interviews with Williams which adds an intimate aspect of the late comedian's words.

Williams' son Zak reflects on his father.
