>> Larry Grobel: In the year 2020, you'll be seventy years old.
>> Robin Williams: Oh, my god.
>> Larry Grobel: Now what will the world be like, then?
>> Robin Williams: It'll be one giant film corporation. There'll be no longer any government.
It will be one nation, under God, indivisible, with circuits and VCRs for everyone.
I don’t know. 2020. There'll be cold fusion.
We'll actually be able to power our cars with our own feces. That's right.
The emissions problem will be a little intense, but just light a match.
>> [Music]
>> Robin Williams: Things that I see in the future. I see...
it could be quite incredible if we can master a few problems,
like the air and the water thing might be nice.
I see governments dissolving. These barriers are all falling down for economic reasons.
They're all so interbound. That's why when one market crashes
it's almost like a world stock market. And this a very long economic explanation...
something I haven't got a fucking clue about.
>> [Music]
>> Larry Grobel: Do you think that there's a role of the artist in society?
>> Robin Williams: Yeah. For a comic especially,
to constantly never let it take itself seriously, to play with, to fuck with the parameters.
The premise that comedy is there to basically show us we fart, we laugh.
To make us realize we still are part animal.
As intellectual as we think we are, you still trip, we still have human foibles,
sexuality, all the different things to still make you aware of your humanity.
That's what we're supposed to do. It's just to keep us awake,
cut through the shit, peel off the mask and go, "Oh, you got a big nose."
Or put on the big nose and make you realize, "Wait a minute, I don't have a big nose."
All that stuff. So you don't take yourself seriously and destroy the species.
>> [Music]
>> Larry Grobel: Do you ever worry about running out of material or ideas?
>> Robin Williams: No, there's a world out there. Open a window, and it's there.
>> [Music]
>> Robin Williams: Sex… if you view sex and just go, “you look pretty ridiculous.”
Even the face. The face you make when you have an orgasm, is pretty much… no one looks...
Probably even Warren Beatty, gets that kind of [shouts].
Everyone looks pretty fucking stupid.
[Makes noises]
You get like the wind tunnel face [makes noises].
Baby, baby, baby, baby. Oh, baby, baby, baby, baby. Baby, baby, baby.
Everything kind of goes [noise]. It's nature going, "You look like an animal."
It's that one thing you got to know. You look a little silly.
I don't care what type of lighting you use
you still sometimes look like a poodle and someone's going to get a fire hose.
These are the things you wonder.
>> [Music]
>> Larry Grobel: Let me ask you about birth as a topic.
You did do the birth of all 3 of your children?
>> Robin Williams: I just remember it was like a magic act.
All of a sudden they put this little tent and next thing I heard this [sound] and then...
They don't scream the first few seconds,
they just kind of go, “Eh! Wait! It's cold! It's very cold!”
Then they wash them off and they suture them and they put those little yarmulke on.
The little teamster cap. The little longshoreman cap.
"Yo, Dad! Yo! Excuse me! You want me to unload this ship?"
Then they handed her to me.
>> Larry Grobel: I don't think I asked you any about your faults,
if you have any and what they are.
>> Robin Williams: In comedy, not pursuing things.
Committing to an idea and taking it to its fullest extent
because it started when I first started performing, it was all jumping around.
Explore an idea until you've exhausted it, really go to all the different parameters of it.
I think another one is not working so much.
This is very interesting, "look at what's bad about you."
>> Larry Grobel: What's bad, yeah.
>> Robin Williams: Look in the mirror, and go, "nostril hair. The fact that I braid them."
I don't know.
Sometimes, keeping track of people.
It's always a weird combination of worrying so much about the outside world, and not…
you have to be more aware of the inner circle, the folks that matter.
Because it comes from performing,
you always want to make sure that everyone in the audience is all taken care of.
That constant desire to please all the time. That can get you in some shit.
>> [Music]
>> Larry Grobel: Do you have or ever make any New Year's resolutions?
>> Robin Williams: I haven't in a while, I haven't made any in,
I think, since I was about a kid.
I used to give up a lot of things for Lent, too, and then I still got hairy.
>> [Music]
>> Robin WIlliams: Here's the best birth control in the whole world, if you really…
if you have no pills, if you have no diaphragm, if you have no other form of contraception.
Use it for ladies, if he comes at you with that little thing in his hand, just go [laughs].
Just laugh at it. They can't deal with it, ok? It will be gone.
The little thing will be out of there.
Then it's assault with the macaroni. Put it away.
>> [Music]
