Jimmy Kimmel Cries Over Don Rickles' Death in Deeply Personal Tribute

Jimmy Kimmel Cries Over Don Rickles' Death in Deeply Personal Tribute

Late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel honored the late Don Rickles with a heartfelt tribute on his show Thursday night.

Legendary comedian Don Rickles has died at his home at the age of 90, according to his publicist. In fact, he struggled to hold back the tears and got very emotional.

In 1965 an appearance on "The Tonight Show" with Johnny Carson gave him his national breakthrough and he quickly became a regular guest.

"Ninety years with Don Rickles weren't enough", Jimmy Kimmel tweeted. "He'd always say, 'Keep my name alive, ' he'd tell me to keep his name alive, which I thought was amusing, you know, because, 'You're Don Rickles!".

Nat Geo has the bright idea to renew Genius

The passing of Don Rickles earlier on Thursday marked the end of a career that stands next to the greatest of all time.

Rickles starred in a number of films and made several appearances on TV, but his most famous role (that kids will actually know of) is when he played the voice of Mr. Potato Head in Disney's famous Toy Story series.

Late Night's Seth Meyers paid tribute to "one of the all-time greats", telling the story of meeting Rickles at a party when he was still on Saturday Night Live.

Speaking about his in-your-face insulting humour, Don said to the New York Daily News in 1996: "If I were to insult people and mean it, that wouldn't be amusing".

But spend time with Rickles, and you realize it's an act, Stewart says: "He's a comedic actor who created a character antithetical to his heart". Kimmel said he called him Mr. Warmth, and that the insult comic would often write him letters and help him through tough times.

"And then he just went, 'Ugh, a guy can dream", Meyers concluded.

"I was lucky to know him".
