In order to honor legendary comedian Don Rickles after he passed away yesterday, many fans and outlets are circulating a 2014 roast of the Hollywood star by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
The two funny ladies of TV lovingly took jabs at Rickles, in much the same manner Rickles had poked fun at others throughout the years in his comedy routine. His specific brand of humor made him famous as one of the world’s first insult comics.
Rickles was also present at the roast, and can be seen laughing at Fey and Poehler’s jokes several times. It appears he was able to take it just as well as he was able to dish it out.
The comic passed away at age 90 yesterday, on April 6, from kidney failure. Rickles was still working up until the end, as he was scheduled to return for his role as Mr. Potato Head in “Toy Story 4”, though he didn’t get the chance to record his dialogue before his passing.
You can watch the full tribute and roast in the YouTube clip above.
