Will Durst, Willie Brown and Producer Paul Wells all have fond memories of Robin Williams. Durst appeared on many of the same stages, and he and his wife Debi Durst were the final owners of The Holy City Zoo Comedy Club on Clement St. in San Francisco, where Robin was once a bartender before becoming Mork. Speaker of The Assembly and Mayor Willie Brown had many charity and other events where Robin generously participated. Paul “Lobster” Wells as a DJ around the Bay, likewise had more than a passing acquaintance with our local, gifted, international star. As a Stand-up Comedy Virgin, between jobs at Jive 95 KSAN and KLIV, he opened a set at The Zoo that was closed by guest sets by Michael Pritchard and Robin Williams. There is a petition being circulated to rename the Waldo Tunnel on the Marin Side of the Golden Gate Bridge (with the Rainbows over the entrance, like the suspenders worn by Robin as Mork) The Robin Williams Tunnel. Well, if the Bay Bridge SF Side can be the Willie Brown Bridge, it COULD happen. Sign here
