Starting as a stand-up comedian in San Francisco and Los Angeles in the mid-1970s, he is credited with leading San Francisco’s comedy renaissance. After rising to fame as Mork in the TV series Mork & Mindy (1978–82), Williams went on to establish a career in both stand-up comedy and feature film acting.

He appeared in the music video for Bobby McFerrin’s song “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”.

Chart

Robin’s chart shows so much about his extraordinary talent, his caring nature, his tumultuous relationships, and his battle with drugs and alcohol. And, it also gives us some clues about what was going on with him that lead to his suicide at age 63, during his still phenomenally successful career.

    Thank you for this insight on such a loved and funny man. I’ve love Robin Williams since I was a kid. I was sorry to see him go. I appreciate you doing his chart for us Coach Evelyn.

      Great to hear from you, Stone! I’m glad the article was meaningful for you. I’m delighted to see that you’ve been doing so well. Thanks for your comment. 🙂 Big hugs, Evelyn

    I loved this explication. Wonderfully done! Thank you.

    • Evelyn September 29, 2014, 7:46 pm

      Thank you so much for your comment, Gloria. Greatly appreciated. 🙂

    Hi Evelyn,
    I was very saddened at the loss of such a great talent, and an obviously caring Human Being.
    I felt that he was “literally at the end of his rope” figuratively and truly. I feel he felt he could not stop the ‘voices in his head’, no off button, and that he felt isolated in that others could not relate to him. He probably had a very high I.Q. He was an only child, so early on he was probably exploited by his parents when they had company… “Hey Robin, make Frank & Mabel laugh, you are so good at it…” He was the Family “Dog and Pony Show”. He made it pay off, had a great lifestyle in the end. The fact that he had four wives showed that he loved women, but he had a disconnect; who knows what happened there. Since he was a Metal Rabbit – he felt very alone, disharmony and stress he would avoid like the plague. He was a gifted communicator, known for his sound advice. He will indeed be missed. There are still 6 Movies ‘in the can’, that he had made and will be released in the coming months. I surmise he dreaded being seen with the visible cues of Parkinson’s and felt he would suffer ridicule and humiliation. God Bless one of our most gifted talents, gone from us all. He will be missed, I think I have seen all his films so far, and I am from Boulder where “Mork & Mindy” was set. Yes, you were wise to share to show you ‘Care’.

      Thank you, Trudy, for your beautiful and wise words describing the person (and talent) that Robin was. I really appreciate your input and YOUR caring. Warm wishes to you.

    Thank you Evelyn – I really enjoyed listening to that. It’s a great way to learn human design to look at the chart of someone that we are all familiar with. This is a wonderful overview, and concise. You hit the most important points. Robin’s light shines always. Thanks again Evelyn!

    • Evelyn September 30, 2014, 4:11 pm

      Thank you for your comment, Kimberly. I always appreciate hearing that my articles are having the effect I intended. 🙂

  • Kathleen Terbeek March 6, 2016, 3:35 pm

    Huge thanks for these readings, Evelyn! I’ve been wishing I could find some effective way to convey my fascination with Human Design to family and friends, and this is the ticket! Nothing else comes close! It’s bound to be very helpful, since most everyone is quite familiar with these two very vivid, performers. Your manner of delivery is candid and the very opposite of off-putting! So yes — huge thanks! It’s a real service!

      Kathleen,
      Thank you for your great response. It is nice to have something tangible to show family and friends to help demonstrate Human Design. Cindy, Assistant to Evelyn

    As a Deaf individual, I cannot hear audio reports. Do you have a transcript of your videos?

    • Evelyn August 17, 2017, 8:33 pm

      I’m sorry, I don’t have a transcript for my blog post audios. I record them spontaneously, so don’t have a script I could email to you. I believe there is a way to get an approximate transcript from recorded materials using some versions of the Dragon NaturallySpeaking programs.

  • Eileen Phaneuf August 1, 2017, 11:26 am

    Thank you Evelyn! You are so clear and accurate at sharing this information. Lovely to feel a connection to him even though he has passed on.

    • Evelyn August 3, 2017, 4:49 pm

      Thank you, Eileen. Glad you enjoyed it. 🙂

    Fun reading. I heard that he was very poor at one on one conversations. I also read that the 17, 43 and the 11th gates are comedy channels, yet RW does not have any of these. Very interesting.
