Can you guess which classic show Don Rickles is on?

He brought his hilarious personality to dozens of sketch shows, sitcoms and even branched out into science fiction.

The nickname "Mr. Warmth" fit Don Rickles about as well as a tutu on a hippo, at least as far as his stage personality went. He was the king of comedy roasts and never met someone he couldn't take a humorous jab at.

Offstage, Rickles was known for his big heart, the complete opposite of the grouchy characters he played in movies and on TV.

My favorite Rickles appearance was not a comedy at all, but as the general manager’s henchman and floor security enforcer in Casino.

* Don Rickles is like 3 Stooges. Most guys enjoy his comedy while most gals do not. Yet he indeed made televised roasts fun to watch! ☺

* Great actor & comedian. He could insult anyone in audience yet never used any ethnic slur. He made any televised roast fun to watch. ☺

loved Don's comedy. also loved him when he appeared on the johnny carson show. Johnny would introduce him as "Mr. Warmth". Man you talk about two guys that cared for & respected each other it was those two. Rickles would always tell Ed McMahon that it wouldn't be long till he had Johnny's job. big laughs when those guys where sitting together. now all you get from the late night guys of today is having to hate the ex-president D.J.T. for their routines. there whole shows revolved around hating that man. shame what's happened to late night comedy these days. that's why i love watching MeTV for the CLASSICS.

I could be wrong, but I think it was Carson's show that always played the song of a matador entering the bull ring when Rickles came onstage.

yes RichLorn i think you are correct. but he also introduced him as Mr. Warmth followed by Matador song entrance. which Don would ham-up to the fullest.
