I heard a joke once: Man goes to the doctor. Says he’s depressed, life is harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world. Doctor says, “treatment is simple. The great clown Pagliacci is in town. Go see him. That should pick you up.” Man bursts into tears. “But Doctor” he says, “I am Pagliacci.”

… This is from Watchmen… not Robin Williams. Like, this might be fitting to that situation, but, yaknow, credit where credit is due. Allan Moore.
