Yes, if you were invited to the press junket of “License to Wed”,
you would think this was like the Laughing Factory. If you are not
careful with your questions, you’ll become Robin Williams’s target. In
this new film Robin plays the family Reverend. Mandy Moore and
John Krasinski decide to enroll in Robin’s marriage prep course
because that’s the only way this union will be blessed. This interview
was edited for DTodos, when you hear the interview in my weekly
radio show at Kclafm.com on Saturday at 2 p.m. you’ll hear how often
he had us laughing.
Do you think you are very spiritual?
Robin Williams: I was a choirboy, and I'm not Catholic,. Just going
back to the old days when I was into going to church and
remembering, as a Protestant, which is Catholic light, once again, the
idea of somebody that could really advise and has something offer. I
think for that it was just remembering those guys that I grew up with
in the Episcopal church, which is there is no purgatory, just spiritual
Who inspired religiously for your character?
Billy Graham. No, Reverend Ernest Aingley, but then he had to go
away for going to recreational bars. Reverend Swaggart. No. No
religious people. I vaguely remember that there was one reverend
who was actually very funny and that may be the model. But there

Is it easy or hard to find scripts for your sense humor?

as I do in standup, but I think standup allows me that freedom. Where
you can really go off and have a good time. But within the character
there's enough room to play and when you have someone like Jon
Krasinski and Mandy, people who will play opposite you and keep
What about the 10-year old sidekick?
That's why he's a Protestant. If you had a Catholic priest with a small
boy they're already going, 'what's up?' It's a boy for the weekends.
It's been a difficult thing for the Catholic Church to deal with after all
these years when they have the Divine Witness Protection program.
It's like three card, 'find a priest, find a pedophile, find a priest. Here
we go. Where is he? There he is. Whoa, found him. Move him over to
another parish. Okay, find him.' Hence, a lot of parishes don't have
Little League programs anymore.
Any suggestions for having a lasting relationship?
The ability to be honest, the ability to talk, the ability to deal with in-
laws, the ability to fight and get over it, get through it because like he
says, intimacy and the initial lust, which is great at the beginning, it
doesn't fade as so much go in wave motions...
