David Letterman Gives Touching 10 Minute Tribute to Robin Williams - Watch Now

David Letterman gave a lovely and touching tribute last night (August 18) to his frequent guest Robin Williams on his show The Late Show with David Letterman.

The 67-year-old host talked about their days in the stand up comedy scene.

“They introduced Robin Williams, and for some reason in the beginning he was introduced as being from Scotland. They said he was Scottish. So now we’re stumped…All of a sudden he comes up on stage and you know what it is. It’s like nothing we had ever seen before—nothing we had ever imagined before,” David said.

“What I will add here is beyond being a very talented man and a good friend and a gentlemen, I am sorry I, like everybody else, had no idea that the man was in pain, that the man was suffering. But what a guy,” David added. Watch the entire 10 minute tribute below.

Robin passed away last week suddenly at the age of 63.
