What a sad loss for the comedy world. Don Rickles has passed away at the age of 90 due to kidney failure. He died at his home in Los Angeles this morning and it's been confirmed by his publicist Paul Shefrin.
Don will always be remembered as the comedian who was so quick witted to fire back at hecklers in the audience. That was everyone's favorite part of the show, when people would try to go after him and he would just pepper them with insult after insult.
On the big screen in Casino, as Mr. Potato Head in Toy Story, and in Dirty Work. Or maybe you liked him on The Beverly Hillbillies, Gilligan's Island, The Lucy Show, The Munsters, The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Andy Griffith Show, F-Troop and of course the Dean Martin Roast specials.
