This is so weird. I was wondering what Louis C.K. would say about Robin Williams’s death, and here it is. And the ending is so sad.
WITH THE WEALTH OF JOY HE’S LEFT US
WE SHOULD PROBABLY REJOICE
BUT IT’S HARD TO TO GRASP WE LOST THE GUY
WHO USED TO HAVE THIS VOICE.
In the wake of Robin Williams’s suicide, this line from the 1986-87 comic book series “Watchmen” is buzzing through the Internet:
I heard a joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he’s depressed. Says life is harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world. Doctor says, “Treatment is simple. The great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go see him. That should pick you up.” Man bursts into tears. Says, “But doctor… I am Pagliacci.” Good joke. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum. Curtains.
Robin Williams was an amazing comic. This is just before Johnny Carson left “The Tonight Show.”
This amazing comic committed suicide yesterday.

I’m reminded of a Tom Lehrer line: When Mozart was my age, he had been dead for 24 years.
“Who’s Tom Lehrer?” you ask. Yes, this is a true sign of age, because not only do millennials not know who he is, A lot of baby boomers are in the dark. Here you go:
Here’s what surprises me. Tom Lehrer is still alive! He’s 86 and living in New York CIty (where else?!). Of course, that means he’s running out of chart space.
