Dom DeLuise, 1933-2009, one funny funny man


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.
