PHOENIX -- Known as a multifaceted entertainer, Robin Williams touched many lives through his work, his kindness and his friendship.

Sean Dillin, owner of the Comedy Spot in Scottsdale, shared his experience with Williams with 3TV's Scott Pasmore.

Dillin met Williams several years ago when he was in town to perform at Dodge Theatre, now Comerica Theatre.

"It was surreal," Dillin said. "He was kind enough to take the time to meet everybody."

Dillin also showed Pasmore a unique piece of memorabilia -- a "life cast" of Williams' face used in the 1993 movie "Mrs. Doubtfire." The mask is one of many collectibles that he owns.

"I'm contemplating putting a lot of this up at the club so people can see it," Dillin said.

Williams' most recent movie, "The Angriest Man in Brooklyn," came out in May. He has three more in post-production. "Merry Friggin' Christmas" and "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb" are both due out later this year. "Absolutely Anything" is slated for release next year.
