Sammy Davis Jr used to laugh uproariously in a humiliating spectacle when Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin would toss around the "colored" jokes at his expense. Anderson Cooper's disturbing laughter at Robin Williams' "joke" strikes the same sad note as Sammy's.

It was uncalled for and just...disgusting.. He doesn't know how to handle hecklers? Then he shouldn't be doing stand-up.

Robin Williams is a complete hack and a f'ing thief to boot. He stole that "Ryan Seacrest watching Brokeback Mountain" line from some crappy comic on Last Comic Standing. In fact the lame quip was even featured in the commercials prommoting the show which got heavy rotation on both NBC and Bravo about 6 months ago. Robin Williams is not funny nor does he have the good taste to steal good material from comics who are.

I never really understood why ppl find Robin Williams funny. You could switch him with the "comedian" uncle from Full House and I couldnt tell the difference. I think it was a bit rude to put Cooper on the spot like that on a broadcast. Maybe I'm just all too familiar with feeling as if I need to laugh at someones BAD gay joke.
