Public viewing on Comedy King’s body Wednesday night at Dolphy TheaterBy Jamie Marie Elona
MANILA, Philippines—A public viewing for the body of Comedy King Rodolfo “Dolphy” Quizon will be held Wednesday evening, the Quizon family said.
In an information sent through Dolor Guevarra, talent manager of Eric Quizon, she said Dolphy’s remains will be made available for public visitors at 9 p.m. at the Dolphy Theatre inside the ABS CBN compound in Quezon City.
Dolphy, she said, will stay inside the theater named in his honor until 3 a.m. Thursday before he will be transported back to the Heritage Park.
Public viewings at the Heritage Park are scheduled from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday until Saturday, a day before his tentative burial on Sunday.
In an article posted on the website of ABS-CBN, it said the theater was previously called Studio 1 and was renamed after Dolphy in July 2008 to honor his contribution to the giant network and as a gift for his 80th birthday.
Dolphy, who was 83 years old, passed away at 8:34 p.m. Tuesday due to multiple organ failure, secondary to complications brought about by severe pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and acute renal failure.
He was survived by his common-law partner Zsa Zsa Padilla and his 18 children.
