We at KBCW were shocked to hear of the passing of movie star and Bay Area icon Robin Williams, so we went into our TV vault to find a way to pay tribute to the comedy legend.
This Sunday – KBCW presents, “The Mork and Mindy Marathon- A Tribute to Robin Williams”.
99.7 NOW’s Fernando and Greg host 8 hours of the spaced-out comedy that launched Robin Williams’ career into super stardom.
Robin Williams plays Mork from the planet Ork, sent to earth to observe human behavior.
Premiering in 1978, the sitcom was an instant hit and Robin Williams became a household name for his improvisational comedy style.
As Mork, Williams often went off script, unleashing bits filled with hilarious voices, sight gags and pop culture references. Pam Dawber was Mindy, the perfect counter playing the straight woman to Williams’ frenetic alien. “Mork and Mindy” lasted only 4 seasons, but it was just the beginning for Williams, who went on to become an Academy Award winning megastar.
Please join us as we dust off the old “Mork and Mindy” tapes and present movie trivia, local history and dedications to Robin Williams.
“The Mork and Mindy Marathon – A Tribute to Robin Williams” runs
from noon till 8pm Sunday, August 31st on KBCW 44 cable 12.
