I saw him a couple years ago in Vegas.  88 years old and he was just zinging people in the audience!  :lol:

Was he doing politically incorrect jokes?  He got away with it?

Anyone see Jimmy Kimmel last night? He was having a hard time keeping the tears back during a long tribute to Rickels. Apparently they were the best of pals and had been for years.

At times he was funny but in today society he would be insulting and kind of a bully.

That tells us more about society these days than about Rickles.  Watching that clip makes me remember back to when people were allowed to laugh.

He was also a Navy vet (Pacific) aboard the USS Cyrene which was the flagship for all PT Boat action in the 7th Fleet...Run Silent Run Deep (clip above) was typical of Rickles's serious side.
