New Robin Williams Figures Introduced To Madame Tussauds San Francisco In Honor Of Fleet Week

_DSC2384_Robin_Williams_MTSF_2015_1In honor of military service members who will arrive on San Francisco shores for Fleet Week, October 5-12, Madame Tussauds San Francisco will display two iconic wax depictions of Robin Williams for the first time. The attraction will also offer half-off discounted entry tickets upon presentation of a military ID.

A lifelong resident of San Francisco, Williams toured extensively with the USO, making three tours each to Iraq and Afghanistan, and traveling overseas to 12 countries to entertain troops. He performed for over 89,000 troops over the course of his tours, offering support to soldiers suffering from sobriety issues and depression. He remains one of the army’s most beloved figures.

Robin Williams was immortalized in wax following a sitting conducted with Madame Tussauds sculptors in April 2001. Both figures are a reflection of Williams as a much-loved stand-up comedian. One figure is modeled on his early career performing at San Francisco comedy clubs; the other depicts Williams in his later years.

“We’re thrilled that our newest additions to the Madame Tussauds family are not one but two figures of a local icon,” said Chris Connors, General Manager of Madame Tussauds San Francisco. “We are looking forward to offering his fans a unique experience, as well as honoring troops during this very special week for San Francisco.”
