7 April 2017

Don Rickles, the master insult comic died on Thursday at Los Angeles home from kidney failure. He was 90 years old and he created laughs with ridicule and sarcasm in a decades-long career. His nickname is Mr Warmth. He devised his brand of mockery-based humor because he was no good at telling traditional jokes. Rickles' last appeared on stage in Las Vegas in late October. But he continued to work after falling ill in February, taping segments of an upcoming internet series for the AARP titled "Dinner with Don," hosting one-on-one conversations with various celebrities.
