Who cares about dead Don Rickles? (comedy)

One Night Only: An All Star Comedy Tribute to Don Rickles (RIP).

Don Rickles -- comedian and best friend of singer/mafioso Frank Sinatra -- died on his birthday of "natural causes," which is to say of not taking care of himself but boozing it up, eating garbage, and assorted and sundry lifestyle choices. But he was funny, and that probably kept going for a long time. It sure kept him sharp. At least we still have Insult the Comic Dog to amuse us, which it seems Rickles inspired. Thanks, Don.
