Time has published a special issue dedicated entirely to Robin Williams. The issue — available Friday, August 15 — features tributes penned by Bill Maher, Dick Cavett, Alan Alda, Joan Rivers, Patch Adams, Jim Norton, Gilbert Gottfried, Margaret Cho, Lewis Black, Nathan Lane and more.
Time’s Richard Corliss and James Poniewozik have also contributed pieces honoring Williams.
“[On the USO tours], the amount of energy he brought when we would get off of a helicopter and walk towards the troops — the amount of energy he gave to them was unbelievable,” wrote Black. “It was really incredible to be in that kind of giving presence… It’s proof again that the good die young, and pricks live forever. He’s gonna be missed. There’s a hole, and it’s it’s gonna take a long time to be filled.”
