BOULDER, Colo. – Robin Williams is known for so many incredible roles, but it was as the star of the television show Mork & Mindy that he first truly burst onto the scene in a big way.

While the show was set in Boulder Colorado, most of it was taped in a California studio. Still the opening credits featured Williams’ co-star Pam Dawber driving through Bounder and parking outside a home on Pine street.

As news of Williams’ death began to break fans began showing up at the home.

“This house has been here my whole life,” Carri Walker told KDVR-TV. “And it’s always been a famous place to take my friends when they come into town.”

Comedians in Colorado too were paying their respects to the legend.

“He’s probably one of the most fearless actors, people, comedians in the world,” Stephanie Garza said. “He went on stage and gave everything. Gave himself to everybody.”

Still it is that home at 1619 Pine St. that seems to draw people in homage.

“I grew here in Boulder. Nanu nanu was the dialogue of the day back when I was a kid,” Matt Kanue said.

“There wasn’t a kid in the neighborhood who wasn’t going to be the next Robin Williams,” comedian Matt Need said. “He was a fearless performer.”
