Don Rickles, Equal Opportunity Offender of Comedy, Dies at 90

Recalling the first time he saw Mr. Rickles perform, Mr. Poitier said: “He was explosive. He was impactful. He was funny. I mean, outrageously funny.” Mr. Rickles got his first break, the story goes, when Sinatra and some of his friends came to see him perform in 1957 – in Hollywood, according to most sources, although Mr. Rickles himself said it was in Miami.
