ABS-CBN releases Statement on Dolphy's Death!  After leaving Sampaguita Pictures, Eugenio “Geny” Lopez Jr. got him into television on Channel 3. His first TV show was with ABS-CBN on "Buhay Artista" (Actor's Life), a concept by Geny Lopez and Ading Fernando. While doing radio, his talent fee was P250-P300 per program; when he did TV, he was at P500 per show.
ABS-CBN mourns the passing of Rodolfo Vera Quizon, Sr., known to all as “Dolphy”, the one and only King of Filipino Comedy.
Remembered as John Puruntong, Kevin Cosme and Pidol among many other names, he remains the symbol of every Juan de la Cruz who loves his children and can make light of life’s trials.
From being a peanut and “butong pakwan” vendor in a movie house to becoming one of the country’s biggest stars, many knew that Dolphy stayed humble and approachable. That is why his life, not just his roles, has been an inspiration to millions.
Dolphy’s first starring TV role was in Buhay Artista produced by ABS-CBN in the 1960s. He became a close and true friend of ABS-CBN’s Chairman Emeritus Eugenio “Geny” Lopez Jr. He would later on become a Kapamilya for more than 40 years.
Today, everyone at ABS-CBN joins his family and the whole nation inremembering his great life and career. Most of his works were huge box office successes, many were award-winning and all are now immortal in the hearts of Filipinos.
We will miss “Tito Dolphy”, an idol, a friend, and already a legend even while he lived.
