    He will truly be missed. While I loved DeLuise as a performer, one of my favorite Dom DeLuise moments didn’t involve him at all. It was an SNL sketch where Chris Farley played him on an old Tonight Show clip (Dana Carvey as Carson and the late great Phil Hartman as Burt Reynolds) where they’re just screwing around and laughing uncontrollably. Farley wets himself. It was funny and evoked the good times that Reynolds and DeLuise had back in the 70s.
