Conan O’Brien was almost done taping his Monday night show when word came down that legendary comedian Robin Williams had died.

Clearly stunned, Conan came back from a commercial and broke the shocking news to his studio audience (below).

Moments after learning of Robin’s passing, Conan looked into the camera and said:

“This is unusual and upsetting but we got some news during the show that Robin Williams has passed away. We tape these shows a few hours early and by the time you see this now on TV I’m sure that you’ll know. I’m sorry to anyone in our audience that I’m breaking this news. This is absolutely shocking and horrifying and so upsetting on every level.”

Conan’s guest Will Arnett also spoke about Robin and his kindness. Will added:

"As funny as he was, he’s truly one of the all time greats, he was even better as a person, he was just fantastic. He was one of the loveliest and sweetest and kindest guys I’ve ever worked with.”

Just so, so sad.

    I'm puzzzled by the amount of love people had for him and yet he felt so alone and so depressed that he apparently felt the need to commit such a horrific crime on himself. Somewhere somebody totally failed!

    Re: Jack – Yeah its really ironic really, all these people coming out to support him now that he's dead. Before his death he was rarely mentioned IMO… RIP Robin
