Following Robin Williams' death on Aug. 11, every performance and interview given by the actor has begun to resurface, but one appearance he made 13 years ago has become especially poignant.
During a visit to James Lipton's Inside the Actors Studio on Jan. 29, 2001, the comedian was asked: "If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?"
His response? "There's seating at the front. The concert begins at five. It'll be Mozart, Elvis and one of your choosing."
Despite the joke, the Mrs. Doubtfire star did get serious for a minute, revealing, "If heaven exists, to know that there's laughter, that would be a great thing," before once again turning on the funny with: "Just to hear God go, 'Two Jews walk into a bar…'"
According to People magazine, the DVD extras reveal Robin's episode was the first to run for two hours, instead of one. He stayed for a remarkable five hours and the producers — and James — didn't want to edit out any more.
In fact, the Oscar winner's appearance provided yet another first for the show. James reveals in the DVD commentary that an audience member had to be taken away by ambulance after developing a hernia from laughing at Robin too hard.
