Awful news to see trending on twitter. But unfortunately another Hollywood Legend and Icon has left us. Don Rickles was the king of insult comedy. It didn’t matter who you were, what you did, or where you came from. Don Rickles would treat everyone the same with his shtick. It was quick, lethal, and funny. Very funny.
I could go on and on about all the performances, films, and of course Tonight Show appearances. But it wouldn’t do the man justice. So instead, please soak in his greatness with these clips.
