Don Rickles Dies at 90


(NBC News) Don Rickles, the legendary comedian whose acid-tongued insults and cantankerous persona delighted audiences for generations, died Thursday, his publicist confirmed to NBC News.

He was 90 years old.

Rickles, whose career spanned more than seven decades and included roles in films like “Casino” and the “Toy Story” trilogy, was a fixture on the late night talk show circuit.

He mastered a take-no-prisoners stand up style that earned him a fitting nickname– “The Merchant of Venom.”
