This week, the world mourned the loss of comedic genius Robin Williams, who committed suicide on Monday at age 63. To honor his legacy, which spanned decades and included several comedy specials in addition to movies and scripted TV shows, we've pulled some of the best segments from his standup routines, many of which were broadcast on HBO.(Warning: The language in many of the videos is NSFW.)

Also, the creator of "Prancercise" returned with an all-new fitness video. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:
