VoyForums Announcement: Programming and providing support for this service has been a labor of love since 1997. We are one of the few services online who values our users' privacy, and have never sold your information. We have even fought hard to defend your privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

Subject: Addotta had quite the rough early life. His mother left when he was just 2 years old. His father abused him both emotionally and physically, and eventually placed him in an orphanage at 4 years old. His paternal grandmother Nonna Addotta then took him in to live with her and grandfather Gaspare, both from Sicily!


Author:
In his autobiography last year, "Confessions Of A Comedian", Addotta describes that his grandmother was an associate of the Bonanno crime family.
