Ramblings of an old Doc

 

Don Rickles is no more...

He was pretty much an unknown until one night in 1957, when Frank Sinatra walked into a club during his act.

“Make yourself at home Frank. Hit somebody.” said Rickles. Sinatra roared — with laughter.

In 1985, when Sinatra was asked to perform at Ronald Reagan’s second Inaugural Ball, he insisted that Rickles accompany him for a comedy routine. Rickles, naturally, did not spare the president (“Am I going too fast for you, Ronnie?” he asked).

Well...he's gone, and it's a damned shame.

R.I.P., Don. You done good.

A bygone Era. Growing up I used to watch the Dean Martin Roasts and Don Rickles was nearly always there. Really is a damn shame. R.I.P. Don Rickles.

Want a few of those laughs. I visit from time to time for laughs.

Just Google this      Dean Martin Roasts                and enjoy the you tubes.

He had a style all his own, a very quick-witted funny man. R.I.P. Don Rickles.
