Last week comedy giant, Don Rickles passed away. He lived a long life, passing away at 90 but we could surely use more jesters like him. Fearless, politically incorrect and unapologetic, he was the uber anti-snowflake.
Watch as I show you why if Don Rickles were a young comedian just starting out today, he wouldn’t even be allowed to set foot on campus to do a show.
Compared to the rank and file of Generation Snowflake, Rickles was a sun going super-nova embracing a take-no-prisoners approach to comedy.
Everything was fair game for Rickles, be it race, religion, nationality - all he cared about was making people laugh and if that meant employing tactics of comedic shock and awe, then so be it.
