Legendary insult comic Don Rickles has passed away at the age of 90 from kidney failure. His career spanned six decades, and while he trained as a serious actor, he is best known for his abrasive stand-up comedy act.

Here is a fine obit from Variety: Don Rickles Dead: Insult Comedian Was 90 | Variety

Rest in peace, Mr. Rickles, you deserve it.

I was very sad to hear this news. I almost thought he wouldn't pass, he'd been around so long.
Stand-up, TV, movies AND served in the United States Navy in WWII.

I only saw him on the late night talk shows a couple of times, but he always received a standing ovation. He will be missed.

RIP Mr. Rickles. One of the greats and truly a legend. Nobody today even comes close.

I envision him at the pearly gates and very likely delivering fitting insults to the angels and to the almighty himself along with his son, but they're all laughing and being entertained while welcoming Heaven's master of insults for all eternity.
