Robin Williams' Emmys 2014 Tribute from Billy Crystal (Video)

Billy Crystal takes to the stage to pay tribute to his longtime friend Robin Williams at the 2014 Emmy Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Monday (August 25) in Los Angeles.

The 66-year-old actor spoke about Robin following the In Memoriam montage, which featured a performance from Sara Bareilles doing a rendition of “Smile.”

“He made us laugh hard, every time you saw him on television, in arenas, hospitals, homeless shelters, and even in a dying girl’s living room,” Billy said. “The relentless energy was kind of thrilling. I used to think if I could just put a saddle on him and stay on for eight seconds…”

“It’s very hard hard to talk about him in the past because he was so present in all of our lives,” Billy added.
