Dom DeLuise, 1933-2009, one funny funny man

domdeluise

Humor, as they say, is the best medicine. If that’s true then Dom DeLuise (wikipedia) was a miracle cure. Sadly, he died yesterday at age 75.

For all the animation voice work DeLuise did, he was in surprisingly few Disney properties. He voiced Fagan in “Oliver & Company” and Bacchus in “Hercules.” Of course, he also had a few memorable moments with The Muppets as well.

By all accounts Dom DeLuise was a comic genius who could make funny like no body else. I wish I could pay him better tribute, but perhaps it is enough just to say, he made me laugh like no one else.

    My son was just introduced to Dom DeLuise’s voice talents recently, but he will be saddened (as am I) to hear this news. The man was a comic-voice genius.
