Jimmy Fallon has broken his silence on the death of legendary actor Robin Williams with a touching tribute on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday (August 12).
“We, like all of you were shaken up a bit last night when we learned that genius comedian and actor Robin Williams passed away. He was one in a kind. He was one in a million,” the 39-year-old talk show host said. “He was unbelievable. If you don’t know his stand-up then you should YouTube it right now and watch it. He was amazing. He was funny and he was fast. He would weave in and out of characters and get Shakespearean. It was incredible.”
Jimmy then proceeded to do his best Robin impersonation, and concluded his tribute by standing on his desk and playing out a key scene in Dead Poets Society.
“Oh captain, my captain, you will be missed.”
