Don Rickles; Dead at 90

Don Rickles, legendary insult comic, dead at 90 -

I can only imagine how entertaining it would be with the reunion between him and Johnny Carson at the Pearly Gates right about now.

He got funnier as he got older. +1 to RIP.

IIRC, he was recently on the Jimmy Kimmel show and didn't show any sign of decline. He was always so funny and never afraid to say anything, RIP.

He was funny. I saw him in quite a few character roles over the years. I always enjoyed seeing Don Rickles. His work will live on.
