Once in a while, an indistinct memory from my youth bumps up against my frontal lobe. It whispers faintly in my ear. (Yes, my frontal lobe has its own ear.) It sighs…”Robin Williams used to be funny.” And sometimes, I almost believe it.

In some parallel universe in which black is white and everyone –including the women–has a goatee, Bill Murray, Robin Williams, Eddie Murphy and Steve Martin are still the gutbusting, wild-and-crazy guys of my formative years. In this universe, unfortunately, Murray is a serious ac-TOR, Martin alternates between writing novels and starring in shitty family comedies, and the other two don’t even have the novels to fall back upon.
