August 11th marks the first anniversary of the death of actor and comedian Robin Williams. Soon after his passing, it emerged that Williams had been suffering from severe depression and Parkinson's Disease. He was 63 and his death was a suicide.

Last November, comedian Martin Short spoke with Brent Bambury about his memories of Robin Williams during the height of his early "Mork and Mindy" fame. More from their conversation on Martin Short's memoir "I Must Say: My Life as a Humble Comedy Legend" can be found here.
