    Mill Valley's Throckmorton Theater honored actor and comedian Robin Williams Tuesday night.

    Dozens of people stood in line hoping to land a seat for the sold-out comedy show at the small theater, where Williams was a regular.

    "I want to be here tonight. I owe it to Robin," Neil Kobrin said. "This is my community, my town. I come here all the time."

    Many in attendance had a personal connection to Williams.

    Kobrin said he gave Williams a book he wrote called "Emotional Well Being."

    "He was gracious and loving and warm," Kobrin said of meeting the late award-winning actor. "He said we could all use emotional well being. I smiled and that was the end of the encounter."

    Cher Evans attended Tuesday's show to be with the Williams community and remember a compassionate man.

    "It was a sold out show -- my mom's last wish was to see him," Evans said.

    The Throckmorton Theater is organizing another special show that will be held in honor of Williams. The show is still in the works and will likely take place in the next several weeks.
