Robin Williams Got his Break Here

When there was an episode about Mork from Ork, they needed a funny comedian to take part in the role. However, Garry Marshall could not find a reputable comedian who wanted the role. That’s when his sister told him about a comedian she passed regularly on the street and enjoyed, so she suggested him to her brother. He was hesitant to hire a street comedian, but he later realized that Robin Williams was one of the funniest men he’d ever met in his life. And that, friends, is where Robin Williams got his big break.
