Don Rickles…one of the funniest men EVER to walk the planet died today at the age of 90.
I LOVE DON RICKLES..he was, sarcastic, surly, crazy…and a genius.
He was a EQUAL OPPORTUNITY OFFENDER, and one of the greatest roasters ever.
Everytime he was on TV, I had to watch. A lot of times, as comedians got older, their comedy changes. Not Don’s, he knew what worked for him and made it work.
From hanging out with Frank Sinatra, to busting David Letterman’s chops..everyone loved Don.
He was so loved, that comedians even considered it an honor to be roasted by him.
His comedy sometimes covered touchy subjects, but it was always taken as it was meant to be….a joke.
Something that was on my bucket list was to see him in Las Vegas…unfortunately that won’t happen now.
Don died from kidney failure at his L.A. home, he was 90.
Enjoy some of his greatest moments…..SOME OF HIS COMEDY MAY OFFEND
And maybe what he loved the most….roasting his good friend Frank Sinatra
I know that Don is up in heaven right now…busting everyone’s chops…and they are laughing with him.
