Comedian Brian Copeland decided not to kill himself and made a one-man play about the experience; then things got funny.
"What really made me decide to bring it back was Robin Williams,” Copeland says of the comic who committed suicide in August 2014.
"I knew Robin; we were not great friends, but coming up in comedy in the Bay Area you had to know Robin. Last time I saw him he asked if I had DVDs of The Waiting Period and Not a Genuine Black Man; he’d never seen either show. I have low-quality DVDs of both archival things so I sent them to him. I don’t know to this day if he ever saw them.”
