Mr. Marshall offers another dose of laughter with a look at the antics of Oscar winner Robin Williams. Once again he’ll deconstruct the wit of this master comic to show us how he worked his magic. You’ll sample individual scenes or “bits” with him, hear explanations of the techniques at play, and find out if it’s rapid-fire dialogue, a memorable tag line, or some other classic device that tickles your funny bone. Was Robin Williams really that much smarter and faster than the rest of us, or did the method behind his mad antics just make him seem so? The answer is yes on both counts, and Mr. Marshall will show us why.
