The new general manager of the Santander Arena in Reading booked Robin Williams at a venue in Virginia about five years ago.

David Farrar said Williams didn't do full tours, so the show in Nofolk sold out fast.

"It was one of the better shows I've ever worked in 10 years of doing this," Farrar said. "I mean he just puts on a great show, loves the crowd, and they loved him.

Williams is survived by his wife and three children.
