Daily Show Robin Williams
Comedy Central

On Sept. 26, 2013, Robin Williams went on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart to promote The Crazy Ones in what would eventually become his last appearance on the late-night show after his death on August 11, 2014.

In the interview, Williams candidly discussed his battle with addiction, revealing details about the time he relapsed in Alaska and how he dealt with fear. Both men joked their way through a very honest discussion, with Williams quipping, “I went to rehab in wine country just to keep my options open.”

In a more serious turn, however, Williams called his sobriety a “total reboot” before delving into his experience with blackouts and more.
