Quote:Don Rickles, the acidic stand-up comic who became world-famous not by telling jokes but by insulting his audience, died on Thursday at his home in Los Angeles. He was 90.

The cause was kidney failure, said a spokesman, Paul Shefrin.

For more than half a century, on nightclub stages, in concert halls and on television, Mr. Rickles made outrageously derisive comments about people’s looks, their ethnicity, their spouses, their sexual orientation, their jobs or anything else he could think of. He didn’t discriminate: His incendiary unpleasantries were aimed at the biggest stars in show business (Frank Sinatra was a favorite target) and at ordinary paying customers.

Thanks for the laughs Don, you were the king of non PC, and continue to influence great comedians like Dave Chappelle and others that are not brain dead snowflakes.
R.I.P. Sir.
İmage

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

I think Jerry Lewis was a rare guest rat packer but not a permanent member.

He probably stuck around because of a good quality life with his wife (they were married in 1965) and daughters.

Well, compared to the 'raw' comedians we have now, I'd say he was tame with the roasting/insulting.
