Fun­ny­man’s lat­est feat

De­spite a mixed re­sume, Robin Wil­liams re­mains one of the fun­ni­est men on the planet. From his early days as a manic stand- up co­me­dian, through his TV break­through in and movies in­clud­ing and Wil­liams is one of Hol­ly­wood’s big­gest stars, with an Os­car u

I have been com­ing down here for 30 years. I took a div­ing va­ca­tion once at the Bar­rier Reef – it was won­der­ful. You guys are amaz­ing and I think you have the most in­cred­i­ble wildlife. You have nine of the most deadly crea­tures in the world and I love the fact that you go ‘ no it’s all right, go in the water’. Box jel­ly­fish, sea- go­ing croc­o­diles, great whites, sea snakes – but it’s to­tally safe Robin. And the sharks swim by you and go ‘ I’m OK, I have had enough. I don’t need you lit­tle hairy boy’. you be­lieve in global warm­ing be­cause she is so beau­ti­ful and sexy and very funny. We worked for two weeks in Syd­ney to­gether record­ing in a room and nor­mally in an­i­ma­tion you work alone.

voice work be­hind him now , how did you find work­ing with Hank Azaria?

He is the king of voices – he is re­ally amaz­ing. It was great for me to watch him work be­cause I had seen him do Agador Spar­ta­cus in The Bird­cage , but to watch him do Sven and how con­cen­trated he was, he was the mas­ter. It was like be­ing with the sen­sei.

Just walk out­side. The weather yes­ter­day in Syd­ney felt like San Fran­cisco – it was cold and wet and I was think­ing ‘ what’s go­ing on?’ If it’s not cli­mate change then Mother Na­ture is hav­ing hot flushes. All these storms – I think four days ago in Los An­ge­les they had hur­ri­cane- type winds. It’s like the Wiz­ard of Oz ‘ I’ll get you my pret­ties – you all had Botox’. Some­thing’s go­ing on.
