Goodbye, Dolphy!

"Laughter is the best medicine" is a long-given advice to humanity. And "Dolphy" gave large doses of this medicine to his fans. Dolphy died in the evening of June 10, 2012 in a local hospital in the Philippines, after a lingering illness. He would have turned 84 next month. He was the "King of Comedy"--making his audiences laugh with him from generation to generation, with his hundreds of films and TV shows. His body of work is virtually a history of Philippine comedy.

Dolphy--his smile, his wit, his genius with comedy, will always be fondly remembered by millions of Filipinos.

Thanks for making me laugh, Mr. Comedy King. God bless your soul.
