Don Rickles Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Don Rickles was born of Lithuanian descent on May 8, 1926 in Queens, New York City USA, and spent his childhood among Jewish people. Don is best known from “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson“, but is genarally famous for his insulting techniques in his popular comic acts.

So just how rich is Don Rickles? Sources estimate that Don’s net worth is $30 million, which he has  managed to save while working not only as a stand-up comedian, but also while acting, including on TV.

Don Rickles Net Worth $30 Million

After graduating from Newtown High School, Don Rickles joined the US Navy, serving during World War 2 and until 1946. In 1948 he enrolled into the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, which led to Don   appearing in a few TV shows, which started his net worth growing. However, these minor roles did not lead Don Rickles to huge success, so he decided to pursue a career in comedy, which he started by performing in some New York City clubs as a stand-up comedian, which considerably enhanced his net worth. It was in these clubs that Don began featuring insulting humor, which idea he got from Jack E. Leonard, and was probably the reason why Rickles received so much recognition from the public. Using this unique technique, Don Rickles net worth grew much bigger.

His technique led to Don Rickles being nicknamed as The Merchant of Venom and Mr. Warmth. An interesting fact is that, at the beginning of his performance, there was always the same song played which is called La Virgen de la Macarena.

It was in 1958 when Don Rickles started performing as an actor. His film debut is considered perhaps coincidentally to be “Run Silent Run Deep”, released in 1958 and based on the US Navy submarine corps. Don Rickles net worth increased with other movies, some of which were indeed successful. Probably, it was in the 1960s when Don Rickles got most attention: he was offered roles in various productions, sitcoms as well as in dramatic TV shows and in films. One of the best movies Don Rickles has ever appeared in is considered to be “Kelly`s Heroes”, in which Don starred along with Clint Eastwood and Donald Sutherland. His other film credits include “The Rat Race”, “Bikini Beach:, “Pajama Party”, “Enter Laughing”, “Love Machine”, “Dennis the Menace Strikes Again”, “Zookeeper”, “Small Fry”, and “Partysaurus Rex”.

As for television, Don Rickles is known from a wide range of  shows and sitcoms, including “Four Star Playhouse”, “The Thin Man”, “Wagon Train”, “Hennesey”, “The Addams Family”, “The Dick Van Dyke Show”, “The Wild Wild West”, “The Lucy Show”, “I Spy”, “Get Smart”, and “Sanford and Son” all of which were popular in several countries around the world as well as the USA, and were broadcast from the 1960s until about the year 2000.

As for Don Rickles personal life, he is somewhat unusual in the entertainment world in that he has been married to Barbara Sklar for 50 years; they had two children, but son Larry died in 2011. He counts comedian Bob Newhart as his best friend, which is interesting as the latter’s style is self-deprecating and laid back, the exact opposite of Don Rickle’s. They are both still in demand to appear on late-night shows, such as with Jay Leno.

#Quote
1 [About Frank Sinatra] When you enter a room, you have to kiss his ring. I don't mind, but he has it in his back pocket.
2 I'm not a big one for jokes. I can't tell a joke, believe it or not. If you gave me a thousand bucks and said, "Don, get up at a party and tell a joke", I'm the worst.
3 [about Sammy Davis Jr.] You can't get Negro help like that, anymore. Wow, to have a guy who can sing, dance--and dust!
4 [to Frank Sinatra, who arrived during his act] C'mon in, Frank. Make yourself at home--hit somebody.
5 [Asked by Jay Leno if he ever worries that his insult comedy might be too offensive for the audience] You know, every night when I go out on stage, there's always one nagging fear in the back of my mind. I'm always afraid that somewhere out there, there is one person in the audience that I'm NOT going to offend!
6 Whatever you do to gain success, you have to hang in there and hope good things happen. Always think positive.
7 If I were to insult people and mean it, that wouldn't be funny.

#Trademark
1 Good-natured insulting of the audience and society in general
