Jimmy Kimmel Breaks Down in Tears During Touching Tribute to Don Rickles

Jimmy Kimmel Breaks Down in Tears During Touching Tribute to Don Rickles

Kimmel could barely hold back tears as he dedicated his opening monologue to Rickles - his friend and the "greatest talk show guest of all time".

Rickles, who said he devised his brand of mockery-based humor because he was no good at telling traditional jokes, had developed a bacterial infection in recent months that led him to cancel a number of performances. He gave me advice-and good advice, not the advice people give you just to hear themselves giving you advice.

"Again, I'm sorry if you're just hearing this for the first time today, but Don Rickles passed away this morning. Never. Hanx.(sic)" Billy Crystal described Don's passing as "a giant loss", while Jim Gaffigan praised him as a "legend". Kimmel tried to book Rickles on his show but it took four years to pull it off.

Talk show host Larry King tweeted: "A national treasure is gone".

"He would always ask about my parents and my kids and really wanted to know how they were", he said. "And he helped all of us through it", Kimmel remembered. "You keep my name alive!'" "And I was fortunate enough to not only have Don on this show, as my guest, but to also become close to him. which was a lot of fun for me".
