Don Rickles is one of comedy’s most famous funnymen. For over 55 years he has appeared in top showrooms and concert halls throughout the U.S. and internationally. He is regarded among the world’s top entertainers.
Rickles was born in New York City, May 8, 1926, to Max and Etta (Feldman) Rickles. He grew up in the Jackson Heights area of New York. After graduating from Newtown High School, Rickles enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served for two years during World War II on the USS Cyrene as a seaman first class. He was honorably discharged in 1946. Soon thereafter, he studied and graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Unable to get a significant amount of acting work, Rickles began doing stand-up comedy. He became known as an “insult” comedian as he would respond to his hecklers. The audience seemed to enjoy these spontaneous barbs more than his prepared material and he developed a style which featured making fun of people. When he began his career in the early 1950’s, he started calling ill-mannered members of the audience “hockey puck,” a term associated with Rickles to this day.
