Today the master of insult comedy has passed on to the other side to even up the score! Don Rickles was a comedy genius who established the insult genre while never appearing nasty. There was always warmth and a wink behind every joke and nobody was exempt from his humour – even himself.
What’s more important is that he was a genuinely lovely person who was charming to who he dealt with. Nobody made me laugh harder!
Vale Don Rickles.
