While making an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote his new original Netflix movie Sandy Wexler on Thursday evening (April 6) in Los Angeles, the 50-year-old entertainer reminisced about some of his time with Don in honor of the legendary comedian’s death that same day at age 90.
Jimmy, who also presented a montage of some of Don‘s greatest moments on his show, began by remembering an occasion when Adam and Don were on the show together.
Don, known for being an insult comic, shouted, “let’s take up a collection and buy Adam a suit.” On another occasion, Adam was having dinner with Steve Buscemi just after the release of Reservoir Dogs and Don happened to be there. The comic threw a barb at Buscemi, joking, “I saw your movie, Mr. Pink, more like Mr. Stink.” And then he turned his attention to Adam, quipping, ‘I saw Happy Gilmore, it’s amazing how no talent can get you a movie.’”
