Franco Lechner, best known as Bombolo was an Italian character actor and comedian.

Born to a humble family in Rome, a former peddler of dishes, Lechner was discovered in a tavern by Franco Castellacci and Pierfrancesco Pingitore, who entered him in their cabaret company "Il Bagaglino".
He got a large popularity in cinema as the sidekick of Tomás Milián in a successful series of poliziottesco films directed by Bruno Corbucci. He was also partner of Enzo Cannavale in a number of comedy films.
He died at age 56 as a result of complications following a major surgical operation.
Years later, his characteristic slang is still fashionable among the younger generations that mimic his rambling dialectic, his verbal tics and his distinctive "tze tze".(from Wikipedia)
