Robin Williams committed suicide in 2014, leaving everyone in shock and tears. And what follows is a sequence of visuals from Williams' life, from his stand-up shows and movies interspersed with appearances by the late actor's friends including the likes of Billy Crystal and Steve Martin.

The first trailer from the forthcoming documentary on comedian Robin Williams is out from HBO Documentary Films.

"The genius of Robin Williams lay in his ability to make a room, a comedy club, a concert hall or the whole world laugh", HBO says of the documentary in a press release.

Directed by Marina Zenovich, the documentary debuted at this year's Sundance for Zenovich's third time and earned rave reviews from critics, now holding a 100% rating on review aggregate Rotten Tomatoes based on 10 reviews. "Offstage, I just felt he was holding himself together".

"Stand-up is survival, for me that's jazz, that's what I've to do", Williams' voice is heard saying in the trailer. "But he was the most successful person I know". The trailer for Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind is out and it will leave any Robin Williams fan emotional.

Directed by Marina Zenovich and produced by Alex Gibney and Shirel Kozak, Come Inside My Mind features interviews with Lewis Black, Pam Dawber, Whoopi Goldberg, Eric Idle, David Letterman, David Steinberg and more.

Williams' family is also a focus of the documentary, with his son Zak Williams sitting down for an interview.
