Just seven months after having heart surgery, Robin Williams, 58, is opening up about his time in the hospital and plans to return to working in stand-up. "I realized I was running out of merchandising money from Bicentennial Man," Williams laughed at the Television Critics' Association conference on Thursday. His Weapons of Mass Destruction tour starts in September and will air eventually on HBO. How does he feel after surviving a near-death experience? "You literally are opened up," he says, "and you really do appreciate the simplest things like breath, and friends." (Photo: WENN)
