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.

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! ☺
