ROBIN WILLIAMS SPONTANEOUS STAND UP
The BBC hosted a moderated discussion on the role of media and how it shapes peoples awareness and they were having some technical difficulties getting the program up and running. There was a lot of Brit Speak as they were trying to problem solve and a gentlemen in the back of the hall was riffing on the situation and doing some well amplified and humorous Brit Speak of his own. It turned out to be Robin Williams who was then ushered to the stage and was, well, pretty damn funny for a good twenty minutes while they sorted things out. Most definitely the accidental highlight of the discussion. Hopefully he'll come back and take the stage again. At least Chris Anderson asked if he would consider and I have the feeling we'll see him again.
