  • Robin Williams

Those looking for closure on what might have brought about his suicide won't find a definitive answer, but plenty of speculation and testimony indicates that something more was going on that Williams was struggling with, both in his body and his mind.

This infamous Robin Williams quote does not appear in the above trailer from HBO's upcoming documentary about the comedy juggernaut's life, but the sentiment is definitely present.

After the ceremony the royal family will head back to Buckingham Palace and gather on the balcony to watch the RAF flypast. The parade marks the official birthday of the Sovereign, even though the Queen's actual birthday is on April 21st.

Robin Williams was an award-winning actor, comedian and literally one of the funniest people in the world. Martin then acknowledges that Williams, on stage, was "a master", but "off stage, it felt like he was holding himself together".

The film, directed by Marina Zenovich, premieres July 16 on HBO.

"My father didn't always feel he was succeeding", Zak, who bears a striking resemblance to his father, says. "Stand-up is survival", he explains.

"You're only given a little spark of madness and if you lose that, you're nothing", the late Williams says in the first trailer. "But he is the most successful person I know".

New Broadcaster Secures Rights To 20 Premier League Games
Those wishing to watch the games will require a subscription to Amazon Prime UK, which now costs £ 79 per year or £7.99 per month. The other 180 televised matches will be broadcast by Sky Sports and BT Sport , which have aired the Premier League in the past.

Robin Williams was a comedian unlike no other, conquering the worlds of film, television and stand-up with an idiosyncratic sense of timing that helped him carve out a distinct presence as an entertainer. Described by the cable network as "a amusing, intimate and heartbreaking portrait of one of the world's most beloved and inventive comedians", it promises to take viewers through Williams' extraordinary life and career and reveal what drove him to give voice to the characters in his mind.
