We lost one of the giants of the Golden Age of comedy with the passing of Dom DeLuise today. He was one of the funniest men in show business, a very talented comedian and actor. He was a regular on the old Dean Martin Variety Show and on the popular Dean Martin Roasts.
He also starred in some of the funniest movies of all time, among them: The End, Fatso, Cannonball Run,and History of the World, Part I. I saw him perform live in Atlantic City in 1983 and I laughed so hard for two hours that my sides hurt. Thanks for the many happy memories Dom. It wasn't just nice, it was thrilling.
