Don Rickles Tribute From Kimmel Is So Good It Had Jimmy Crying
I’m sure you’ve heard by now, but the great comedian Don Rickles passed away yesterday in his Beverly Hills home the age of 90. Don was a comedian’s comedian, a funny man beloved by the funniest of men. You might know him as the voice of Mr. Potato Head in the Toy Story franchise, or you might know him as a regular fixture amongst the Late Night talk show scene.
There will be many Don Rickles tributes over the coming days, but I’m certain we won’t see anything as emotional as Jimmy Kimmel‘s. To kick off last night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, an emotional and hilarious tribute to Don was shared and it had Jimmy crying before the even started with the tribute (video montage of Don below):
Jimmy also ran a short montage of his favorite Don Rickles moments:
Jimmy Kimmel’s special guest last night was Adam Sandler, and the two also took some time to pay tribute to Don Rickles together.
All the feels.
