Billy Crystal to Honor Robin Williams at the Emmy Awards

LOS ANGELES (KRON) — Friend and fellow comedian Billy Crystal says he’s hard at work preparing a tribute for Robin Williams at next week’s Emmy Awards.

Crystal co-starred with Williams in the movie “Father’s Day” and partnered with the late star and Whoopi Goldberg in the Comic Relief fundraisers.

Emmy’s producer Don Mischer is confirming the special tribute which he says has been in the planning stages since shortly after Williams’ body was found dead in his Tiburon home last week.

The tribute will be the first extended public comment from Crystal about his friend since Williams died. Previously the comedian had simply tweeted “No words” on hearing of the death of Robin Williams.
