CFN – Betcha that most of you reading this have never heard of Joe Bodolai. Joe exited Stage Hollywood. Not the first and not the last. He left the USA seeking haven in Canada during the Vietnam years and built a career in Comedy.
The irony that many who give so much to make us laugh suffer in darkness during their lives. Joe had a great life in many ways. He achieved a lot; saw a lot; but because his adopted country couldn’t fulfill his career he had to go back to the US just like so much Canadian talent has to leave to reach its pinnacle or be rewarded fitly.
That’s a problem for many countries but one that Canada should not have.
Reading about Joe, reading his last blog entry; I’ve learned more about him than I knew. I recognized his name from rolling credits of shows like Kids in the Hall.
Joe decided he’d had enough of life.
Life is full of misery, loneliness, and suffering – and it’s all over much too soon.Woody Allen
