I want to share one of the many things that Uncle Dino did to make me laugh. When I was younger, there were times that he would go into NYC with me and some friends... believe it or not! We went to the Comedy Cellar one night and Ray Romano was there (before he was well known). Unfortunately, we were sitting right up front! Uncle Dino commented on almost everything Ray said and he could hear all of it. I was slinking down in my chair. Ray and Uncle Dino were going at it the entire time and everyone was just laughing hysterically. This is just one incident that has stayed with me... I can assure you... there are many more.
