Don Rickles was the best, very funny, without crossing the line.

I loved him on Get Smart as Maxwell Smart's old army buddy, very funny.

My husband and I had front row seats at one of his shows. He picked on both of us and another couple and then invited us back to his dressing room for drinks. Very nice guy. Don and Bob Newhart were best friends. Newhart's comedy the opposite of Don's. I thought what an odd couple.

He was hilarious.

His lines here were improvised:

"Why don't you get a horse and live in the mountains someplace and don't bother anybody?"

"And everybody's sucking sand."

LMAO.

A one of a kind. Caught a few of his jokes in his later years. RIP

Don was a comedian and there were times such as these when he was the butt (aim of a joke) of the jokes.
