An Academy Award®-winning actor and multiple Grammy-winning performer unparalleled in the scope of his imagination, Robin Williams continues to add to his repertoire of indelible characters. Robin has been nominated four times for the Academy Award® and in 1998 he won for his work in Good Will Hunting. Additionally, Robin has been nominated ten times for a Golden Globe® Award and has won the award four times for his work in television and film, including Mork & Mindy; Good Morning, Vietnam; The Fisher King and Mrs. Doubtfire.
Robin, who began his career as a stand-up comedian, in late 2010 concluded his critically-acclaimed, sold-out Weapons of Self Destruction comedy tour as one of the most successful stand-up comedy tours of the year. The tour grossed an astounding $40 million and Weapons was taped over two nights at Washington, D.C.'s DAR Constitution Hall for an HBO special that premiered as the network's highest rated stand-up comedy special of 2010.
Headlining a number of USO tours, Robin has traveled to Iraq and Afghanistan five times to help raise morale among the troops. He is perhaps best known philanthropically for his affiliation with "Comic Relief," which was founded in 1986 as a non-profit organization to help America's homeless.
Additional film credits include: Dead Poets Society, Awakenings, The Birdcage, Night at the Museum and its sequel, One Hour Photo and World’s Greatest Dad. Robin's voice talents have been heard in Disney’s Aladdin, Robots, Happy Feet and most recently Happy Feet 2.
