RIP dear Dom Deluise

Dom DeLuise died in his sleep around 6 p.m. on May 4, 2009. He was very funny, and very well-liked.

His film FATSO (1980) is a real gem. It stars Dom DeLuise as Dominick DiNapoli, and co-stars the terrific Candy Azzara and Ron Carey. It was written and directed by Ann Bancroft.

I was so sad to hear of his passing. Definitely a comedy legend. R.I.P.

I was working on a show once, and we used some clips from the Dean Martin Roast. My coworker had to clear him, and got his #. We thought it was his office, but it was his home, and he answered the phone! He was great.

Fatso is such a lost treasure. I can't tell you how many times I've seen it.
