Don Rickles was just the greatest. The most fascinating thing about him was that, despite his on-stage character being literally the rudest person imaginable, it somehow made him all the more lovable. Not everyone can pull that off (in fact, almost no one can)
Everyone's been tributing Rickles but here are two of my favorite clips. First, Jimmy Kimmel got choked up talking about his friendship with Rickles over the last 10 years or so. Second, a clip from the Johnny Carson tonight show where Carson finds out Rickles broke a cigarrette box on Johnny's desk, so Carson storms onto the set of Rickles' sitcom to call him out. Both of these I first came across at the AV Club.
THEY KNOW WHO I AM!!!!
