I came home from a dinner last night and one of my maids announced that Dolphy is dead. “Hah??, that’s so sad,” as if Dolphy was a close friend. But yes, Rodolfo “Dolphy” Quizon, the veteran actor has been part of every Filipino’s lives. Who could ever forget the longest-running and most watched primetime sitcom in the Philippines during the 1970s and 1980s, John en Marsha? The sitcom depicted a typical Filipino family, which made Dolphy the Juan dela Cruz to may Pinoys.
In the 90′s Dolphy was once again part of the prime time viewing of Filipinos with Home Along Da Riles.The sitcom was a comedy show depicting the lives of a typical Filipino family living alongside the railroad tracks.
Dolphy’s passing is a big news in the Philippines, very fitting for a person who was widely regarded as the Philippines’ “King of Comedy” for his comedic talent embodied by his long roster of works on stage, radio, television and movies.
The whole country joins the Quizon family in mourning. The passing of a great person is a truly grievous moment for a country who enjoyed his laughter for quite a long time.
