Robin Williams paraded his new wife Susan Schneider at The Comedy Awards in New York


Robin Williams got married for the third time last October after vowing not to tie the knot again following two failed unions, but he took the plunge again last evening as he and his new wife Susan Schneider lit up The Comedy Awards together.

Robin Williams, 60, paraded his younger partner around at the event in New York City, leaving onlookers impressed with his lady’s chic.

Graphic designer Susan Schneider, 47, donned a beige frock which showed off her toned limbs as she posed with her other half inside the Hammerstein ballroom.

Susan Schneider teamed the dress with coordinating peep toe heels, an envelope-style clutch bag and gold accessories.

Robin Williams, who wed Susan Schneider on October 23 last year in St. Helena, California, was honored with the Icon Award at the bash.

In his acceptance speech, Robin Williams called himself “one of the luckiest (bleeps) in show business, with the possible exception of Ryan Seacrest”.

Fellow funny guests included Elisha Cuthbert and Eliza Couple who did a spot of presenting with Adam Pally, who donned a giant slice of bread over his head.

While both blondes sported black frocks, Elisha Cuthbert was noticeably more elegant than her co-presenter who flashed too much flesh in a plunging cowl neckline dress with see through pleated skirt.

Actress Jessica Williams, Kristen Scheel and Amber Nash joined Bridesmaids stars Wendi McLendon-Covey and Maya Rudolph.

Maya Rudolph looked pretty with her brown hair pulled up into a half ponytail, but sported a rather unflattering black shapeless dress with heels.

Wendi McLendon-Covey, who played one of the bridesmaids looked striking in a hot pink number which she teamed with black heels.

The latter’s former Saturday Night Live colleague Amy Poehler also attended with husband Will Arnett who stars in Up All Night.

Former Friends star Matthew Perry, Tracy Morgan and Ty Burrell graced the gold carpet in traditional suited attire.

However, funnyman Reggie Watts stuck out from his peers as he went for the scruffy look, throwing a scarf over his bushy locks and wearing khaki trousers with a hooded top and nail polish.

Bridesmaids won best comedy film with Oscar nominee Melissa McCarthy winning the best actress gong.

NBC’s Parks and Recreation won best comedy series, with its star Amy Poehler winning best actress, while Modern Family’s Ty Burrell took best TV actor.

Robert De Niro took to the stage to make an introduction about Don Rickles’ career before the legendary comic was presented with the Johnny Carson award.

He was followed by Robin Williams, who began a stand up comedy career in the last 1970s before going on to star in TV show Mork and Mindy.

Robin Williams has discussed the first time he saw his in an interview shortly after saying “I do”, Robin Williams said: “I kept thinking, <<She’s so beautiful>>, but I also had the feeling that I knew her.

“I said: <<Don’t I know you?>> I know it sounds like a bad pick-up line. But it’s true.”

Robin Williams says Susan Schneider gave him a fresh perspective on life following a divorce from his second wife of 19 years, Marsha Garces, mother of two of his children, Zelda, 22, and Cody, 19.
