Legendary Comic Don Rickles Dies at 90

Recommended Posts

Legendary comic Don Rickles, a rapid-fire insulting machine who for six decades earned quite a living making fun of people of all creeds and colors and everyone from poor slobs to Frank Sinatra, has died. He was 90.

Rickles died Thursday at his home in Los Angeles of kidney failure, publicist Paul Schrifin announced.

Sarcastically nicknamed "Mr. Warmth," Rickles had mock disdain for stars, major public figures and all those who paid to see him, tweaking TV audiences and Las Vegas showroom crowds with his acerbic brand of takedown comedy. A good guy and devoted husband away from the stage, Rickles the performer heartlessly laid into everyone he encountered - and they loved it.

I'd love to see Rickles unleash his 60's era vintage standup insult routine upon a venue at UC Berkeley filled with SJW's, snowflakes and communist professors.  :gsbrnint:  :nukeanimated:  :smiley_flowers:

No kidding. The Three Stooges, Richard Pryor, Jerry Seinfeld, Rickles -- would be considered too violent or edgy for today's snowflakes. Well, there is one group that's OK to beat up in comedy clubs -- Trump and conservatives. On those Dean Martin comedy roasts, Rickles brought down the house. And never cracked a smile.
