Don Rickles, legendary insult comic, dead at 90

(CNN)Don Rickles, a comedian and actor known for his abrasive humor, died Thursday from kidney failure at his Los Angeles home, according to his publicist Paul Shefrin. Known as the world's greatest insult comic, Rickles enjoyed a career which spanned centuries and found him performing in everything from nightclubs to a Martin Scorsese film. He tried his hand at performing comedy in nightclubs in between acting gigs and it was there he found his true calling by taking on hecklers. Sinatra took such a strong liking to the comic that Rickles became an honorary member of the Rat Pack and the singer helped to open doors for him and his caustic wit.
