Robin Williams was literally darting out into a street from NY’s Catch a Rising Star club running into unexpecting me, who a day earlier, I had just mailgrammed an offer to have him play a concert at the University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, WA, where I work as the programs director. Not wanting to miss the perfect opportunity to push my date, I seized the moment to tell him, and both his hands shot up and he yelled “Help, I’m being accosted!, and I said no you’re not, and stopped him from backing into traffic. Months later, he indeed not only honored my invitation, and made a sold out college fieldhouse a very festive place-he also honored his commitment and turned down some big offers from promoters to cancel on us.
