There’s been a rush of great stories about Robin Williams today, most notably this one from Norm Macdonald that just really kicks you right in the gut. But Conan provides a touching tribute that isn’t any slouch on tonight’s show.
As we shared, Conan announced William’s passing last night at the end of his show and was visibly shaken by the news. Tonight we find out why with the story of how Williams bought Conan a bicycle during a very rough period in his life. They weren’t super close, but Williams had heard the talk show host liked to ride and thought he’d buy him a bike.
Of course it was the most ridiculous bike you could buy, but that’s all part of the Robin Williams experience, at least according to Conan. The clip package that followed was pretty bittersweet, but it’s nice to see.
