Don Rickles has died at 90 years old. He is a comedy legend. I remember watching him on reruns of CPO Sharkey and saw some of his comedy routines and
many appearances on Johnny Carson and other late night shows. He was the "master of insults".
He was one of the funniest people who ever lived, in my opinion. His stand up comedy often included many racial and cultural jokes back in the 70s
when Americans had a sense of humor about the differences between the races and cultures. Some say he was the white Richard Pryor.
R.I.P. Don Rickles. Thanks for the laughs.
Warning: Must have a sense of humor to see this video. Not trying to "trigger" anyone.
They always use the word 'insult' with me, but I don't hurt anybody. I wouldn't be sitting here if I did. I make fun of everybody and exaggerate all
our insecurities. Don Rickles Read more at: www.brainyquote.com...
Again? I coulda SWORN he passed 3 or so years ago... darned Mandela Effect (kidding... mostly).
Anyway, he sorta was a standard for a couple generations, for better or corny worse, but lived a relatively long life that I imagine was better than
most... so ... the afterlife got an insult comic with quite a resume'.
Thanks for the thread and the space EiT. One of my
real look-up-to's is gone, and I felt bad almost all day.
A wonderful guy with a lifetime supply of snarky pills:
RIP Don. I hope you and Blue Eyes are hoisting a
second round as we speak... I'll miss you anyway.
