    I snorkeled with Robin Williams

    I was on a beach in Maui and Robin came up behind us and sat down with his child and wife. As we ate our lunch and they sat behind us, he did about 30 minutes of "Stand-up" to entertain the baby. Impressions, jokes, funny voices, you name it. We felt like we were getting a free show and it was hilarious. He truly was always on. She later went off to take the baby for a nap and my group and I went out snorkeling.About 15 minutes into our swim around the water, Robin popped up in the middle of us as we treaded water in a circle. he came out of the water already in the character of Jacques Cousteu and went on to do about 5 minutes oft that impression. It was hilarious. We showed him around the bay and taught him how to dive down and see the eels and the coral heads. We snorkeled for about an hour and a half and discussed how scary it can be to snorkel alone. He was happy that he joined us and thanked us. We went on our merry way after that and gave him and his family their privacy on the beach. Still, it is one of the most fun moments of my life to have had a prviate show from this genius comic genius.
