Comedian Don Rickles Was at His Best on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show

Hey, everybody from outside the United States--you'll never get a better feel for 20th Century America (and it's humor) than these clips so please take advantage now! (Especially you people from countries that restrict personal speech and expression.) And for all you younger people, THIS is what it was like to live in a non-PC world where everything goes (as long as it wasn't against the law)!! Trust me: it was so much more fun.
Over the course of 30 years, Rickles would appear on Carson’s show more than 100 times, each time bringing a blast of energy onto the set. Here’s a look at some of Rickles’s best appearances on Carson’s Tonight Show.
