Pour One Out For: Dom DeLuise 8/1/33 – 5/4/09

The Gods have made the heavens weep this day,  in honor of the magnificent Dom DeLuise.  Another Hollywood icon has been taken from us this year, and frankly this loss truly upsets me.  Here is what Yahoo has to report:

“Dom DeLuise, the portly actor-comedian whose affable nature made him a popular character actor for decades with movie and TV audiences as well as directors and fellow actors, has died.  He was 75.

DeLuise died Monday night, son Michael DeLuise told KTLA-TV and radio station KNX on Tuesday. The comedian died in his sleep after a long illness. Calls to his agent were not immediately returned.”

If it weren’t for the chaotic concert that I am attending this evening, my night would be full of nothing but the greatness that is Dom DeLuise.  His portrayal of Ceasar in Mel Brooks’ History of the World:  Part 1 is classic toilet comedy that you just can’t find these days.

So raise your horns, challices, gobletts, and glasses for Dom DeLuise!  Rent his films, order lots of take-out food, and laugh yourself through a heart attack.  He will be missed.
