Robin Williams admits his finances are far from a laughing matter.

The comedian has been left on the verge of bankruptcy after two costly divorces.

The 62-year-old is returning to TV and selling his $35 million house to help cover his debts.

"The idea of having a steady job is appealing," Williams told Parade magazine.

"There are bills to pay. My life has downsized, in a good way. I'm selling the ranch up in Napa. I just can't afford it anymore."

The "Mrs. Doubtfire" star divorced his first wife in 1988 and ended his second marriage with Marsha Garces in 2008 after 19 years.

"Divorce is expensive. I used to joke they were going to call it 'all the money', but they changed it to 'alimony'. It's ripping your heart out through your wallet," Williams said.

He's currently married to graphic designer Susan Schneider who he tied the knot with in 2011.

The Oscar winning actor will star alongside Sarah Michelle Gellar in a new TV show called The Crazy Ones which will debut in the U.S. on September 26.
