Today's blog isn't so much about being funny as it is about a very funny man. Dom DeLuise was born in 1933 and passed away peacefully in an LA hospital today at the age of 75. I was lucky enough to get to work with Dom for a few years at one of my first jobs in LA and I still have his happy headshot to go with it. I'm sure there will be many cliches floating around today about him but this one I know to be true - he was a beast of a man by nature of his size but was one of those people who walked quietly and carried a big stick wherever he went.
He leaves behind him a lifelong career of funny, whether he was Pizza the Hut or Captain Chaos, he delivered each and every time. To celebrate his life today I've found some of the best outtakes and bloopers from Dom in hopes that you can celebrate his life in passing today.
