Dom DeLuise passed away last night.

I met him at Maggiano’s at the Grove in L.A. once. He was in a party with a few people from CBS, and we were sitting in tables side by side. When I was done, I went over to him and said, “By the way, I just wanted to thank you. You sat there the whole time and not once did you come bug me for an autograph. I can’t tell you how nice it was to enjoy dinner without a bunch of autograph hounds interrupting me.”

He laughed.

I made Dom DeLuise laugh.

That was enough for me!
