He was passionate about making people laugh since childhood and chose to pursue his passion as a comedian post his education and degree in the theatre background.

Although he experiences a tragic end, he is still remembered for his impact he created through his comedic nature and character, sense of humor, skills in acting, and talent. He gained recognition at The Hollywood walk of fame and was awarded a star. David Spade who acted with him in the film 'Tommy Boy' was his best friend, confidante, and greatest supporter.
