    Without sounding nasty just looking at Ray Romano makes me laugh!! He may not be the best actor in the world but then again he doesn't try to be, he doesn't take himself too seriously. what he is though is a very talented comic, writer and producer.I haven't seen much of his stand up stuff but I loved him in ' Everybody Loves Raymond' and i was gutted when it ended. Ray will probably never win an oscar (although i hope he does!) but hopefully the fact that he can make so many of us laugh out loud will be enough for him.moreless
