Although Mrs Doubtfire was cringe-worthy (as a character), I had great admiration for his wit and comic genius, and will continue to do so.
Madness is an admirable/ enviable characteristic in a comedian (or anyone), and not one to be dismissed lightly.
I was only just talking about RW with the Mrs this morning as an Aladdin song came on her playlist whilst she was getting ready for work and said how the genie was my favourite disney character as a kid.
Horrible news, and such a tragedy. Another great man taken too early.
