Before the big launch of, one of my favorites passed away. Many people from all over the entertainment world have already paid tribute to the great Don Rickles, who died of kidney failure April 6th.

The Vegas Strip commemorated the life and career of Don Rickles by featuring pictures of him on many of the casino resort marquees.

Don was funny, ballsy and made fun of everything and everyone. Many people have shared clips of Rickles from his appearances on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and The Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts, but I loved his spots with David Letterman. The video at the top of this post is Don doing The Late Show just shy of his 88th birthday. Check it out.

And do yourself a favor — search for clips of Don Rickles on YouTube. You won’t be disappointed.
