Dom DeLuise RIP
You have to know who Dom DeLuise is, if you don't then you haven't really laughed.
Growing up, we were big Dom DeLuise fans. My father was a Mel Brooks fan and we watched all his movies over and over, so much so that we could recite lines verbatum. We loved Silent Movie, Blazing Saddles, History of the World and Space Balls.
Some of my favorite Dom DeLuise movies are:
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes Smarter Brother
The World's Greatest Lover
Smokey and the Bandit II
History of the World Part I
Only my family will get this one but "you ate the ony!"
It is a sad day in the comedy world! I was heartbroken to hear this news. My sister's and I always said that he looked like our father and hearing of his passing, actually hurt my heart.
My prayers go out to his family.
