Prince Antonio Griffo Focas Flavio Angelo Ducas Comneno Porfirogenito Gagliardi De Curtis di Bisanzio, best known by his stage name Totò (15 February 1898 – 15 April 1967) or as Antonio De Curtis, and nicknamed il Principe della risata ("the Prince of laughter"), was an Italian comedian, film and theatre actor, writer, singer and songwriter. He is widely considered one of the greatest Italian artists of the 20th century. While he first gained his popularity as a comic actor, his dramatic roles, his poetry, and his songs are all deemed to be outstanding; his style and a number of his recurring jokes and gestures have become universally known memes in Italy. Writer and philosopher Umberto Eco has thus commented on the importance of Totò in Italian culture:

Wiki Bio Text
Active - 1948 - 1967 | Born - Feb 15, 1898 in Naples, Italy | Died - Apr 16, 1967 in Rome, Italy | Genres - Comedy
The delightful Italian stage and screen comedian Toto was born to a prominent but penniless Neapolitan family at the turn of the century. Following World War I service, Toto first took to the stage as music-hall revue comic. Firmly established in the legitimate Italian theater by 1936, he made his first film appearance in Fermo con le Mani. So popular was he by the late 1940s that his movie vehicles often incorporated his name in the titles: some of these, notably Toto e Cleopatra, Toto d'Arabia and Toto Sexy, were parodies of established "serious" film genres. Toto has often been described as "The Italian Fernandel," even though the only common denominater between the two comedians was the unbridled adulation of the public. In 1958, European audiences were treated to the long-awaited teaming of Toto and Fernandel in the satirical comedy The Law is the Law. Toto died suddenly of a heart attack at the age of 69, shortly after completing his final feature, Capriccio all'Italiana (1968)
