So sad to have to inform you, dear readers; Funnyman Dom DeLuise, 75, passed away last night in an L.A. hospital.
Snarkista adored Dom, who starred in Mel Brooks films like ‘Blazing Saddles,’ ‘Silent Movie,’ ‘History Of The World Part One,’ ‘Space Balls,’ ‘Robin Hood: Men in Tights,’ and co-starring with Burt Reynolds in films like ‘The Cannonball Run,’ ‘Smokey and The Bandit II,’ ‘The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas’ and ‘The End.’
He also hosted the popular TV show “Candid Camera” from 1991-1992. Dom was an avid cook and author: he wrote several cookbooks and childrens’ stories. Sources told TMZ that he passed away peacefully in his sleep around 6 PM.
Our condolences to Dom’s family on such a loss. We’re pretty sure, however, that there are smiles and laughter in heaven today!
