90 years old.

Not my favorite comedian and I think he was miscast as Asmodeus. However, I know he was popular or he would not have been in the business for so long. RIP Don.

James: Thanks, Artie.
Artemus: "Thanks Artie"! Is that all you can say to me? I've just come back from the grave, risen like Lazarus, and that's what you say? "Thanks, Artie"?
James: Thanks, Artie.
Artemus: It's a pleasure.

Rickles was never a favorite of mine. In general, I don't care much for comedians - I find most of their humor too harsh for my liking.

But here's an interesting clip with a few familiar faces(forward to 4:10)

The clip was hilarious. I always liked Don Rickles. I fondly remember watching the Dean Martin Roasts. My favs were Foster Brooks, Red Buttons and Don Rickles.

And... my kids basically knew him as Mr Potato Head. I remember him mostly from Johnny Carson. Asmodeus was a definite miscasting; to this day when I watch the episode, I still expect him to start calling everyone a hockey puck.

I agree with most here who are saying he wasn't a favorite, but he could be funny at times. He definitely was miscast in www.

I always liked watching him on the talk shows. He was a regular my whole life it seemed. Most recently saw him often on Jimmy Kimmel's show. Jimmy got real emotional when Don passed away. Almost made me cry too! I have his WWW autograph card a few times...I think 3 in fact, for the trading card binder collection.
