The entire nation faces this sorrowful time as we hear the voices of those who, fondly and deeply, speak about the memory of the King Of Comedy. Ironically….as much as he has made me laugh, smile, and look at life with more joy, it was those moments when he did drama that touched and spoke to me the most. His comedy never failed to show me what he was known for and who he was known to be , but it was his dramatic performances, those rare yet magnificent moments, that showed me more to this man than what our eyes have met.
No doubt, Dolphy did more than make people laugh. He touched people when and where it mattered and counted the most. From the consistent and never changing desire to live his passion from the heart, he is one of the very few that completes the entire spectrum of what a true artist should be.
To have all his projects shown on television for us to enjoy once more, would mean we would literally have months, or even years of Dolphy on a daily basis. I can guarantee that if you’ve only heard of him to be The King of Comedy, seeing this man in action will certainly make you know him to be much much more than this.
Thank you Tito Dolphy…for touching our lives.
Very saddened to hear about the news of Dolphy’s death. “Home Along Da Riles” was one of my favorite Filipino TV shows when I was a youngster. He will be sorely missed…
