A true-to-life case of childhood dreams coming true, one gets the impression that the success of humble comedian turned actor Ray Romano is more of a surprise to him than it is to those who supported him in his years as a struggling futon deliveryman moonlighting in standup.
Romano’s job description on critical darling Men of a Certain Age includes star, producer and writer. But it’s his back-end payday from Everybody Loves Raymond, now in syndication, that makes up the bulk of his fortune. He also takes home residuals from the hit animated movie series Ice Age. He’s set to voice a fourth installment, out in theaters in 2012.
Born in Queens, NY, in 1957 and raised in nearby Forest Hills, Queens, Romano found happiness early in life by tickling the funny bones of family, friends, and of course, girls. The middle child of three sons, the aspiring funnyman refined his comic talents when he formed the bravely titled “No Talent” comedy troupe at age 16 to the delight of the congregation they regularly performed for.
