I Hate Robin Williams

Yep, I've said it, and I'm sure I'm not alone. But if that's not enough for you, try this on for size: Robin Williams is not funny. Do you think Robin Williams is funny? If so, chances are you aren't funny either.

For years I've been amazed that people still think this hairy goofass is some kind of comedic genius. I don't know if you've ever actually stopped and watched him when he's being interviewed on Entertainment Tonight, Jay Leno or some other terrible show where they suck up to him like crazy, but really stop and watch next time. Someone will ask him a question and then he'll basically repeat the question while talking either like a gay dude or in some painful white-dude-talking-like-a-black-dude impression. I ask you, how long can this schtick keep Mork in the "people who are funny by default" category? Not much longer I hope, as I find watching him excrutiating. It's like watching Michael from The Office doing his Chris Rock impression.

"But Shane", you say, "Robin Williams is also a good dramatic actor". Actually, no he isn't. He follows the Tom Cruise school of acting where he basically plays the same dude in every movie. Unlike the crazy midget Cruise, Rob Williams' one character is a semi-creepy pussy that's always one insult away from going postal and clawing someone's eyes out. But I'm sure you won't take my word for it, so let's look at Robin William's last 10 movies to see just have unfunny he's become:

The Big White (2005) - He plays a travel agent trying to outsmart the mob - how could I not heard of this?

Robots (2005) (voice) - Voice acting might be the one acting where Williams "talent" fits best. But he's still the poor man's Eddie Murphy of voice acting.

House of D (2004) - This film was written and directed by David Duchovny, nuff said.

The Final Cut (2004) - Someone on IMDB describes it thusly: "The Final Cut" is a dark cross between "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind", "One-Hour Photo" and "Citizen Kane." My god, this cold be this best movie ever made.

Insomnia (2002) - Quelle surprise, Robin Williams as a creepy dude.

Death to Smoochy (2002) - A well-documented debacle

One Hour Photo (2002) - More creepy Williams anyone?

Artificial Intelligence: AI (2001) - Williams voice alone in this helped tank this big budget mess

Bicentennial Man (1999) - Robot Robin wants to be human, sign me up!

Jakob the Liar (1999) - "A rather uplifting and slightly humorous film about World War II Jewish Ghetto life". I wonder if he does any of his crazy voices in this one?

Keep in mind this list doesn't include Mrs. Doubtfire 2, an upcoming sequel to a film that was cheesy and semi-painful when came out in 1993. What's that smell, is it hairy man BO? No, it's desperation.

But this is all my opinion, perhaps you love Mork and can't wait to see his latest opus, RV, a movie about Robin Williams driving an RV. I honestly don't know why you would want to do this, but no doubt some people will. Not me, I'm waiting until Steven Seagal's houseboat-themed adventure movie comes out. Of course I made that movie up, but I can dream.

I hate that unfunny SOB also. So much so that I found your site by googling the words "I hate Robin Williams". Why this bozo is so popular is beyond me. I'm sure he's probably a very nice guy and so I guess that makes it a little easier to take, but oh my god when i hear someone say he's a comedic genius it makes me want to strangle them slowly. There are 2 movies of his that I actually liked. Why? Because he wasn't being Robin Williams, he was just being the character. Those 2 movies were Jumanji, which co-stars the *reaaly* funny David Allen Grier, and Hook, which I found more enjoyable than the original Peter Pan story. Best wishes.

amen, all he does is say things really fast in different(sort of) voices, so people don't realize that what he is saying isn't funny. i also found this site with the 'I hate robin williams' search. i'm glad to see i'm not the only sane person in this crazy world.

I hate Robin William with a passion. Just watch him on any talk show and it is rapid-fire unfunny jokes. Usually the host is so overwhelmed by Williams that they are speechless. I also am puzzled when people laugh, I think they are just trying to be polite. Also when people are in a mood to laugh they will laugh so maybe that is it.

I googled "I hate Robin Williams" too. Thank god I'm not the only one. He's a giant windbag and a blowhard. He's not funny. He stopped being relevant in the 80's. His schtick is just annoying. He needs to hang it up.
How anyone can refer to him as a genius is amazing. Richard Pryor is a comic genius. Bob Newhart is a comic genius. Robin Williams is a Douchebag.
Dane Cook isn't funny either. Niether are Carlos Mencia or George Lopez. Wanda Sykes really isn't funny. Jon Stewart isn't funny but the people who work on his show are. Conan is funny. Leno isn't. Letterman used to be. I could go on on on.

I sadly also found this site by Googling the words "I Hate Robin Williams". Other than "Good Will Hunting", which even he couldn't fuck up, he is arguable the most useless famous person ever. He will ruin a talk show appearance faster that you can say "garbled mixed metaphor". What's even better, he tend to ruin any other guests' spot as well if the host is dumb enough to let him linger around. I wish he could shut the fuck up, but alas he cannot.

Yeah I don't get what the hell is talking about. Ever.

As an interview subject his personality ranges from unbearably annoying to .... actually that's about it.

He also has this side to his personality where he talks in a soft, hushed tone with a faint british accent. No idea what that's about. Must be his Juliard training coming through.

I didn't know you could major in "Painfully Unfunny" at that school.

Although discussing this topic has altered your consciousness, you remain irrevocably stupid. Ergo, some of my answers you will understand, and some of them you will not. Concordantly, while your first question may be the most pertinent, you may or may not realize it is also irrelevant.

Your lives are the sum of a remainder of an unbalanced equation inherent to the failure of your parents DNA. You are the eventuality of an anomaly, which despite their sincerest efforts they were unable to eliminate you from what is otherwise a harmony of mathematical precision. While it remains a burden to sedulously avoid it, it is not unexpected, and thus not beyond a measure of control. Which has led you, inexorably, here.

First, I'll comment on the blog...

I wouldn't say I hate the little monkey, but I think he should calm down and act like a human sometime when he's being interviewed. I guess he thinks he's suppose to be entertaining 24/7, forgetting he's not getting payed to act out in public just so people who are listening to him feel like their time was well spent. You're right though, it seems like he just keeps playing the same person in each film. But, there's just some people whose own depth of personality is too shallow, you really can't expect them to be anyone else than the people they can see in themselves.

Now, I'll comment on other extremely annoying people's comments...

To King, you're an idiot, plain and simple... just because people complain about how another person acts in the lime light, it doesn't mean we're jealous of them for the amount of money they rake in each film. It's like you're saying to the people who hate George Bush that the only reason why they complain is because they themselves don't have the same amount of power as the President, which sounds idiotic if you ask me. For the same reason why people complain about George Bush, the reason why people hate Robin Williams is because he sucks at what he does, which is acting, or acting out.

To Baron Von Hutchinson.... You're as lame as the statement you just made. You, yourself, are an insignificant spec in this universe that has nothing better to do than to act like a pseudo-intellectual (but in actuality, you just ripped off the most unintelligent phrase that could have been uttered in a completely mind-numbing movie). You yourself should do what's best for everyone who exists in this world. Just vanish like a fart in the wind, useless piece of shit.

And to everyone else on here... YOU CAN ALL GO TO HELL!!!! hahahahaha...

nah, just playin...

Did anyone here see Man of the Year?

Well, I didn't think so.

I did as a joke. I knew it would be bad so I went with some friends to laugh at how terribly it was made.

We couldn't. We tried, but we just couldn't. We were appalled.

It's not healthy, but I get angry when I think about how much money goes into his painfully awful movies...not to mention the money the studios are paying him to "act" in them.

Robin Williams was funny in the 80's, back when humor was defined by doing silly voices and having men dress up like women.

To "Duke Wellington": You must have a small member. You obviously are attempting to compensate by calling yourself "Duke." There is only one Duke, John Wayne. No little tampon using vacuous pustule like yourself should ever be referred to as "Duke." And before calling someone insignificant and pseudo, you might want to look between your legs. The word phrase means "a group of words that functions as a single unit in the syntax of a sentence." The Baron's post should more accuratly be described as a monologue, dumb-ass.

And one more thing you piece of excriment, obviously The Baron was being sarcastic and facetious. Long live The Baron!

I really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really don't like Robin Williams. He is not funny. I needed this forum as a way of expression to take out my anger for the worst actor in the world. I found many sites that says he is not funny and I happy to see many people can relate to my opinion. Thank you.

I also googled "I hate Robin Williams"


At 1:52 AM, Anonymous MikeX did sayeth:

I have never heard Robin talk in an authentic voice in an interview. His whole routine is to talk nonsense in a goofy voice very rapidly, then awkwardly stop - which causes an audience to instinctively laugh to fill in the dead air.

So when Robin Williams plays a normal speaker in Good Will Hunting - he earns praise for his mediocre performance because he seems like a good actor for not doing his goofytalk.

Absolutely unbelievable he is a success with that crap.


At 10:15 AM, Blogger Doodad did sayeth:

To "the king", you are as useless an asshole as Williams is. Anyone that thinks Robin Williams is in the least bit funny is retarded, and more likely than not, a socialist liberal cumstain. Since you think we hate this so unfunny cold-douche-on-a-winter-morn "comedian" because of his money, you are both (retarded and a socialist liberal cumstain, as he is).
He also steals funny jokes from other comedians and somehow manages to make them unfunny. So King, why don't you do the world a favor and kill yourself...please!

Hey, I found this by googling the magic phrase "I HATE ROBIN WILLIAMS" after I read an article in a retard's blog with the exact same sentiment- I thought it might be a internet meme, but I guess not. Check out the Brett Graham dissertation on ROBIN WILLIAMS though because he sums up his horribleness better than you, though you seem to make the exact same points

scroll down a bit, its old news.

Looks like this is a great venting spot for all of us smart people that cannot STAND Robin Williams. The only movie of his I somewhat liked was 1 Hour Photo, and even that was only because I worked in a one hour photo place at the time. Unlike everyone else though, I did not find this blog by googleing "i hate Robin Williams". I searched "Robin Williams sucks" :)
He is the one person that can single handedly ruin an entire talk show every time he comes on. He is either a gay pirate or an african chief in some made up language.... JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP AND TALK LIKE A HUMAN BEING!!

I googled 'I hate Robin Williams'. But unlike most other people in this discussion I hate the guy not so much because he is unfunny, but for all the cringe-inducing 'human touch' moments where he tries to show us how sensitive and vulnerable his character is (Hook, Mrs. Doubtfire, Good Morning Vietnam, Dead Poet Society, it's all the same). Makes me want to puke.

I found this site by Googling "Robin Williams unfunny" because he is and I was wondering if anybody else thought so. He's actually very annoying. Why does he keep reusing that "Wizard of Oz" schtick? He's terrible.

I was motivated to google "I hate robin williams" after sitting through a painful hour of Happy Feet. Really, I'm sure he's really a nice person, we only see part of who he is. But I hate his acting and his ADHD bullshit. He isn't funny - he is an untalented attention-whore. If you can't do anything genuinely talented, the only course of action remaining is to act like hyperactive nutsack.

I also found this site by Googling "I hate Robin Williams". Right now my significant other is forcing me to watch Bicentennial Man. It made me realize what's wrong in our relationship. Obviously he's insane. We definitely have to break up. I think my new relationship test question will be "do you like Robin Williams?" If they say yes, I'll run screaming into the night.

I think I read someone say that Hook was actually one of Robin Williams' few good movies.

I'd like to point out the name itself: HOOK.

It's not "The Return of Peter Pan" It's called HOOK!

Dustin Hoffman made that movie. No memorable scene in that movie includes Williams. But you can remember such beautiful scenes as when Dustin goes:

"I hate, I hate, I hate PP-eter PP-an!"

He could have just as well said "Robin Williams". It would have been the same thing to me!

I too googled "I Hate Robin Williams" and found this article. I was relieved to witness how many people bear the same amount of disdain for this sellout as I do. People like Robin Williams have destroyed this nation as well as the movie industry. His movies are unfunny and disrespectful to those who have the ability to create good comedy. I would also like to add that Robin Williams is nothing more than a hypocrite!

I went for "Robin Williams isn't funny" to see what I would get on my screen. I second your view on his "hilarious" interviews, and personally I think he's one of the biggest "has-been's" in comedy today.

Annoyingly though, the rest of the world hasn't caught on and keeps on inviting him to their shows.

Oh and I hate, I really, totally hate (I mean H.A.T.E.) "Patch Adams" more than any other Williams movie. The part with that old lady and the spaghetti, combined with Williams's trademark "I'm a retard"-smile just keeps eating away at me...

I can't stand people who think they are funnier than they are.
Incest is funnier than him. I would rather have my nuts stepped on by an elephant than getting front row seats.
I would eat a cow pie if it meant that I'd never, ever, hear/see/think about that squat, fugly, pubic hair covered bastard again. The only good thing about him was getting to see Mindy, hubba hubba...

i had nothing against robin williams untill i heart him talk about the french. there are 62 million french men you know. if he must put somebody down to be funny why dont he pick on short people, nobody could take that seriously. i decided not to watch him any more. but i started watching something new to me, August Rush, and
Robin Williams plays a villain who puts Julliard down and steals a boy from there.
2 things about me,
i am french and every cent i have i owe to Julliard. all i can say is
if i were an actor, i would not have taken this role. but then again, i would not have played Mrs Doubtfire either.

by the way, i've met Robin Williams and he's a very nice person.

Someone I respect has Robin Williams listed on their Facebook page. I immediately began questioning my respect for this person. I felt terrible, but it made me sick imagining this person, who I hold in high regard, laughing at Robin Williams' terrible impressions.

I googled "i hate robin williams" hoping to find something to justify my apparently irrational loss of trust. I feel better now knowing I am not the only one.

My hatred for Robin Williams extends beyond a mere hate for him, but a lack of trust in anyone who subscribes to his humor.

OH GOD THANK YOU. You know, when I was a kid I just accepted him, but as I got older he just started gradually pissing me off and irking me out more and more. The first thing that bothered me was the way he gets all serious and preachy. Good comedians don't need to do that to get their point across.

He was ok in Birdcage (spastic gay dude suits his acting style perhaps). It would have sucked were not for Nathan Lane, et al.

I remember watching the Mork and Mondy show as a pre-teen. I hated it. They also loved Happy Days. I never 'got' Williams. It's one note lame.

I find him most objectionable when the trio of unfunny (Crystal, Goldberg, and Williams) coalesce into a vortex of smugness. None are funny, all are communists, and they sicken me.
