Robin Williams, short of breath, takes a break

Doctors advised Robin Williams to take a week off from the 80-city tour of his one-man comedy show after the comedian experienced shortness of breath, according to his publicist. Performances set for this week in three Florida cities — Hollywood, Orlando and Tampa — will be put off until later, the publicist said in a statement on Williams’ Web site. “Williams was experiencing shortness of breath and is currently being evaluated by doctors who are recommending a week of rest,” the statement said
