OUR TEAM COVERAGE CONTINUES WITH NEWS THREE'S VELENA
JONES, WHO SPENT THE EVENING.
WITH A LOCAL IMPROV GROUP.
Many of us know robin Williams from films like good
will hunting and mrs.doubtfire...but for comedians
like the monkey business improve institute in Madison,
he was much more than an actor...he was a role model.
Jason Stephens - student Sot: Well when I was a
kid I watched mark and Mindy and that, there was a
puzzle so we was always sort of a part of my life.
To see someone do something goofy and creative all
the time encouraged me to pursue comedy.
Debbie caps: student sot : everybody knew who robin
Williams was he had so much energy and everything
was bigger with him.
I think he had so much impact is because he brought
authenticity to his character.
Brad knight - monkey business institute owner
sot: there's sort of a stereotype that comedians have
a dark center to them but you still dot expect something
like that to happen.
You think even if...it's pretty shocking
