All the way back in 1986, Carol Burnett hosted a comedy special, “A Carol Burnett Special… Carol, Carl, Whoopi & Robin.”
During the special, Carol teams up with Robin Williams for a skit titled “The Funeral.”
The skit begins with Carol Burnett mourning the death of her late husband at a wake, but when Robin Williams shows up to the funeral, things take a very different turn than what you would expect!
At 6:31 it gets even better. The two do a second take of the scene where Robin Williams begins improvising his lines. He catches Carol off-guard when he begins singing. She’s so taken by the song, she has to look away from the camera and take a good 20 seconds to compose herself because she can’t help but laugh at Williams’ comedic genius!
Watch and try not to laugh:
Robin is definitely missed! His comedic genius was incomparable. I couldn’t help but bust out laughing when Robin asked, “Is he in here?” and then attempted to open the casket!
They just don’t make comedy like this anymore!
Share with your friends and family if you loved Robin Williams and Carol Burnett’s “The Funeral.” I bet they’ll be laughing so hard their belly’s will ache!
