Famous People with Bipolar:

Robin Williams

Famous bipolar entertainers are among the most visible sufferers of this disorder. The performing arts have seen the genius of many talented people with some form of mental illness, including bipolar disorder. Robin Williams, for example, was one of this era's most successful and admired comedians and actors, regarded by many as having been helped rather than hindered by his bipolar illness.

The category of famous bipolar entertainers is one of the largest lists of bipolar sufferers on this site, along with that of people in the music industry. And as with music, famous people from all aspects of this

industry are represented: actors and actresses, comedians, directors and producers, and screenwriters.

Lesser known but equally creative people in the TV and movie business, such as graphic and animation artists, could easily double this list if not for their relative obscurity.
