Robin Williams was a wonderful man and I think whoopiee has glued herself to his image.  his quote:

"I use to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. its not. the worst thing in life is to end up with people that make you feel all alone." quotes Robin Williams; and I think this was about the comedian whoppie: "never pick a fight with an ugly person...they got nothing to lose." There has to be other comedians who can represent Robin Williams life and jokes out there. Every thing about Robin Williams makes money --don't you other comedians want a cut of the pie?  Robin Williams needs other representation other than whoppiee.  She has glued herself to his image long enough and the next generation needs to study this approach and get in on it!
