1. You Never Get A 2nd Chance To Make A 1st Impression
Robin Williams was a brilliant comedian. He managed to take his humor, stretch it farther than you’d ever think possible and snap it back into place before you even noticed he’s taken you on a journey. It was an impression (“Monk”) on “Happy Days” that skyrocketed his comedic career, so it’s no wonder impressions have given him comedic clout. Check out his best impressions here. RIP Robin Williams.
2. Popeye, The Sailor Man
Popeye – I’m Popeye the Sailor Man – Robin Williams Shelley
As the title character in Robert Altman’s 1980 version of Popeye, Williams clearly, and accurately, borrowed from the vocal template of the original cartoon Popeye voice actor, Jack Mercer.
3. Ronald Reagan
President Reagan was also a target of Williams’ in the latter’s iconic 1986 Live at the Met comedy special.
4. Arnold Schwarzenegger & Ed Sullivan
Robin Williams famously played the Genie in “Aladdin,” and even the genie does impressions!

7. Al Pacino
Robin Williams Kicks Off the AFI Life Achievement Award For Al Pacino. In 2007, Williams delivered a tribute speech to his Insomnia co-star Al Pacino, who was being honored by the American Film Institute. Naturally, he couldn’t help but deliver some of Pacino’s iconic lines, from “Hoo-ah!” to “Say hello to my little friend!”
