Don Rickles (1926-2017)

"Don Rickles was an insult comic in the same way that Picasso painted squares. Rickles, who died today of kidney failure at the age of 90, could seem antiquated to contemporary eyes, but there’s a reason fellow comedians revered him. Rickles’ shtick was simple: Find people in the crowd and make fun of them. (He asked nightclub owners to seat the funny-looking patrons up front.) But even into his later years, he worked variations on that simple theme with dizzying speed, and with a singular lack of fear." [Slate]
