Billy Crystal delivers moving tribute to Williams at Emmys

Robin Williams

Billy Crystal has paid tribute to his pal and comedy brother Robin Williams at the Emmy Awards, movingly remembering him as “the greatest friend you could ever imagine”.

Following the ceremony’s in memoriam segment, Crystal appeared on stage at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre to honour Williams, who was found dead in his Northern California home on August 11. A luminous image of the late comedian hovered overhead.

“He made us laugh, big time,” said Crystal.

After Williams’ apparent suicide, Crystal simply wrote on Twitter of his long-time friend and Comic Relief co-host: “No words.”
