Down the Tubes: You Need to See Jamie Costa’s Amazing Robin Williams Impression

Down the Tubes is a recurring feature where we, the SAW staff, share our favorite movie-related videos with the Wasteland. 

Please share your video recommendations with us at or on Twitter @SAWasteland.

This has been circulating around the web for a few days now, but since I only saw it for the first time last night I thought it was worth sharing.

The test footage features Jamie Costa and Sarah Murphree as Robin Williams and Pam Dawber acting in a scene set backstage during the taping of Mork & Mindy, the day after John Belushi passed away.

Costa is phenomenal as Williams in this short scene. The video’s voice opening had me fooled in thinking it was actually Williams talking.

If Hollywood and the Williams’ family ever decide to make a biographical picture on the life of Robin Williams, I know who I want playing the acclaimed comedic actor.

What did you think of Jamie Costa’s impression of Robin Williams? Would you be down to see him star as the late actor in a biopic if one were announced? Tell us your thoughts down in the comments below!
