* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: He always makes clear that his routines don't come from malice and that he never goes after someone he thinks won't be able to get him back just as hard. This is the reason why he can go full-bore against people like FrankSinatra and ClintEastwood and have them laugh merrily along and hug him with warmth and affection afterwards.

* TheMafia: Rickles' has spoken about performing at clubs run by the mob and how he's seen other comics get beaten by heavies for offending the wrong person (and how, in once, instance FrankSinatra demonstrated his own clout by stopping one such beating with a simple word). He also has a story where his mother told a table full of mobsters that she didn't want them carrying guns around her son when he was performing and how each and everyone of them, out of respect, promptly pulled out their guns and placed them on the table in the most polite way possible.

Born May 8, 1926, Rickles left his wartime service in the U.S. Navy in 1946 and headed not for the nightclubs of the BorschtBelt, but straight for the prestigious American Academy of Dramatic Art. Serious about the craft of acting, genetics determined that the bullet-headed Rickles would never be a leading man, and years of mostly fruitless effort proved that the path to a career as a character actor was going to be long. Comedy seemed to be a quicker, if no less difficult, path. Over the years, Rickles discovered that traditional gags didn't really work for him, but "working the audience" did.

Nevertheless, Rickles continued to shine as a hugely popular live performer. In 1985, Republican-convert Sinatra showed his support again by insisting Rickles be included on the bill at President RonaldReagan's second inauguration. A lifelong Democrat, Rickles considers his performance at the event a career highlight. He and the Chairman again appeared together at the inauguration of UsefulNotes/GeorgeHWBush in 1989.
