A 22-disc Robin Williams DVD collection is coming and it's definitely on our wishlist

Please let this come to the UK

When Robin Williams died in 2014, the world lost one of its greatest comedians. From movies like Mrs Doubtfire, Good Morning Vietnam and Aladdin, to his anarchic stand-up performances, he brought smiles to the faces of fans across the world.


Now his legacy is being celebrated with a new DVD collection in the US. The mammoth 22-disc collection, spanning his entire career.

It doesn’t include any of this films, but instead, his five HBO stand up specials, along with several never-before-seen shows.

There is also a host of rare footage including Williams on talk shows, promo clips, and early stand up video, along with new interviews from Billy Crystal, Steve Martin, Jay Leno, Eric Idle and more. And hours and hours and hours of more stuff.

At the moment, it looks like it’ll only be available in the US through mail order distributor TimeLife. It’ll probably be possible to import it into the UK somehow, but it will likely be Region 1 coded, so you’ll probably need a multi-region DVD player.


The collection includes:

  • All five HBO stand-up specials together for the very first time, including Off the Wall (1978), An Evening with Robin Williams (1983), An Evening at the MET (1986), Live on Broadway (2002) and Weapons of Self Destruction (2009)
