    I never got to see him perform, I will always regret that.

    RIP, you hockey puck.

    Saw him in Vegas in the 90s. Was literally sore from laughing the next day.

    Don Rickles was one of the greatest comedians to ever live, and he will be sorely missed.

    I'll just leave this one here without further comment.

    Rickles would always tell the story of how only he would be able to tell any joke about Sinatra to his face and get away with it.

    Went to a few of his shows back in the day and other than Robin Williams and Rodney Dangerfield, was one of the funniest and best. You learned not to sit close - that made you fair game :D

    The man made me laugh throughout my youth and adulthood. He'll be sorely missed. Loved him in "Kelly's Heroes". Even in a semi-serious role he made you laugh. He was just that good.

    In his hey-day, one of my all-time favorite comedians; there were no roasters who could top him, imho.
    Comedy must be good for longevity, Bob Hope (100), George Burns (100) and now Don R at 90, no slacker either.

    RIP Mr. Rickles. The biggest loss will be that snowflakes will never ever be able to see you perform and if they did, they wouldn't realize just how damn funny you were.

    Lot's of great stuff on YouTube ;)
    Not the same as live however it does give you a glimpse in to the genius of the man.
