Robin Williams at CBS Upfronts: He Talks Cocaine — and “Ass-Sniffing”?
There's no doubt that a certain star has lived a crazy life.
Mrs. Doubtfire star Robin Williams is headed back to the small screen this fall on the CBS sitcom The Crazy Ones, and he certainly had some colorful comments to share with the crowd at the upfronts on May 15, according to Deadline.
Robin referred to the upfronts as having a "strip club motif," adding, "Welcome to Sugar Daddy’s, where old men dance for young girls."
He said that the upfronts are like the Westminster Kennel Club dog show, “but with more agents and a little less ass-sniffing.” We'll take his word for it.
He then delivered a joke about "partial circumcisions," and said that when he was working in TV thirty years ago, "there were much simpler upfronts — and a mound of coke."
Robin — who got his start on the '70s sitcom Mork & Mindy— has famously dealt with substance abuse issues over the years.
The Crazy Ones is definitely one of the most-anticipated new shows of the fall, with Robin playing father to Sarah Michelle Gellar in the workplace comedy from Ally McBeal creator David E. Kelley.
We can't wait to check it out! But we're pretty sure we'll pass on going to Sugar Daddy's.
