An evening pause: Rickles is funny, in his annoying sort of way, but stick around to the end for the finish when Sinatra puts the final nail in the coffin.

    I was barely a teen back then but I appreciated how great those classics (shows and entertainers) were.
    And Rickels still has it.
    If you haven’t seen it, check out the Rickels episode of Seinfeld’s internet program “Comedians in Cars with Coffee”.

    They were very funny and had a lot of class, not a swear word among them!
