Jimmy Kimmel Pays Tribute to Don Rickles: 'We Lost Someone I Love Very Much Today' (Video)
On tonight’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the 49-year-old host presented clips of some of Don‘s greatest moments on his show in honor of the legendary comedian’s death earlier today at age 90.
“This is not going to be our usual show tonight,” Jimmy revealed. “And I’ll tell you right up front that I’m going to cry – probably a lot, which is embarrassing. But I’m not good with this sort of thing and I’m sorry – especially to those of you who came here to see the show in person, because that’s probably not what you came for. But we lost someone that we and I love very much today.”
“There will never be another Don Rickles,” Jimmy said before showing the montage. “He was probably the greatest talk show guest of all time. Here he is: Mr. Warmth – Don Rickles.”
