Restaurateur and Entertainer. A long-time friend of Frank Sinatra, Rizzo made cameo appearances in several of his films. He was also a frequent guest on Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In, where he would recite one liners in his monotone New York accent. During the 1970s, his night-club was torn down and replaced with Dean Martin's restaurant, Dino's. On May 6, 1992, Rizzo was killed in a car accident when he was hit by a drunk driver on his 75th birthday in Rancho Mirage, California. He is buried near Sinatra in the Desert Memorial Park in Palm Springs, California.
