Robin Williams once said he hoped there was laughter in heaven.

Williams took his own life yesterday, aged 63.

During a 2001 interview on Inside the Actor's Studio, host James Lipton asked Williams: "If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?"

Barely missing a beat, Williams replied: "There's seating near the front. The concert begins at five. It'll be Mozart, Elvis and anyone of your choosing."

He then added, "If heaven exists, to know that there's laughter, that would be a great thing.

"Just to hear God go, 'Two Jews walk into a bar ... '."

The clip of the interview resurfaced as the world mourned the death yesterday of the 63-year-old comedian.
