Earlier this week on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Kimmel opened his show with a touching and heartfelt tribute to his good friend and colleague, the late Don Rickles (who died April 6, 2017 at age ninety).
Kimmel told the story of how the two of them met, how Rickles would give him useful career and life advice and how they would visit one another's homes and families.
He finished up his tribute to Rickles by saying that ninety years was far too little time to have him around. Kimmel stated that Don Rickles was a true comedy legend, and we'd never see the like of him again.
Kimmel then said, "Thank you, Don. We'll be right back with Adam Sandler!"
Wow. Way to drive home your point there, Jimmy!
