It’s a sad day, folks:
Comedian-actor-director Dom DeLuise, who delighted audiences with his antic performances, has died. He was 75.
His son Michael DeLuise told Los Angeles TV station KTLA and radio station KNX that he died Monday night in Southern California.
DeLuise was born Aug. 1, 1933, in Brooklyn. He made his first off-Broadway appearance at age 8. After graduating from the High School of the Performing Arts, he attended Tufts College. During that time, he spent two seasons at the Cleveland Playhouse. He worked several summers on stage in Provincetown, N.J.
Somehow, the world is just a little bit less funny today. 🙁
