    Rest in Peace Don- one of the greats indeed ! Funny as hell. I loved it when he was on the Johnny Carson show- probably one of the few comedians with a quicker wit and humor than Carson. He would put Johnny through his paces on that show- then Carson couldn't stop laughing . Incredible talent. We need more like him these days. I put Rickles in the same league as Sam Kinison & Rodney Dangerfield as comedians. Priceless. Peace out, Mr. Flipper

    what Flipper said, except for Kinison,he was funny, but not in Rickles territory - in my opinion of course.

    Someone above mentions he has as much energy as Robin WIlliams, energy yes, but you can't say the two of them are alike in any way, Rickles was a natural, Williams was just acting that way to so folks would pay more attention to him, it was his ego, same with Jim Carrey, both of them not funny, and nowhere near Rickles, a natural, funny comedic legend.
