He's probably trading barbs and insult jokes with Joan Rivers in the afterlife now!

An almost sui generis comedian. What a loss.

If you ever watched the Dean Martin or Friar's Club celebrity roast shows a few decades ago, Rickles always came on as the last roaster and batted cleanup. No one could follow him.

He even surpassed his insult predecessor, the great Jack E. Leonard.

I used to like it when he would slowly come out from behind the curtain on the Tonight Show while the band played the loud trumpets blaring Spanish song that a matador would get coming into the ring, and Carson would laugh, but look wary. But some of the ethnic insults/mimicries that he did back in the day on shows like The Tonight Show would never fly today. But that isn't unique to him, if you watch the Dean Martin Roasts on youtube you will see some jokes about black roasters that also would not fly today.
