CLASSIC DON RICKLES TV SPECIALS, UNCUT!
Don Rickles is one of comedy’s most famous funnymen. For over 55 years he has appeared in top showrooms and concert halls throughout the world. He is regarded among the world’s top entertainers. Rickles earned the nicknames “The Merchant of Venom” and “Mr. Warmth” (coined affectionately by Johnny Carson) for his style of humor in which he pokes fun at people of all ethnicities and walks of life.
