“Robin Williams just showed up at the [UCB] theater one night. I think he had heard that we do comedy, and he stopped by and asked if he could sit in, and of course, we were like, “Yes.” He’s an improviser, and he didn’t know the “ASSSSCAT” rules, but it didn’t matter.
I remember afterwards, saying, “That’s a lesson in fear: He literally didn’t know the format, and he’s used to doing it all by himself.” I feel a lot of times I judge stuff before it even comes out of my mouth, and he has no filter.
But I also remember calling my mom and saying, “You’ll never believe this, but Robin Williams gave me a lap dance tonight.” He was playing a stripper, and I was playing a dude who came with my friends to a strip club, and he came and he rubbed his belly on my face and straddled me. It was amazing.”—Lennon Parham (via thank-you-mrs-loopner)
