“It was such an honor to see Don again,” said Hammer. “This was an amazing evening. Don is very busy with his travels and took time out of his schedule to meet with me before his show and gave a sample of his act…the guy is damn funny even off stage. Thank you for the shout out during your show, Don. Also, a big thank you to Terry Jenkins (director of entertainment Boyd Gaming) and Tony O (Don Rickles Manager).”
Don Rickles has received two Primetime Emmy Awards, including Best Individual Performance in a Variety or Musical for the 2008 HBO special “Mr. Warmth: The Don Rickles Project.” In 2009, cable network TV Land honored Rickles with the “Legend Award.” Rickles’ best-selling memoir “Rickles’ Book” was released in 2007, and was followed up with the 2008 title “Rickles’ Letters.” In addition to recurring dates in Las Vegas at The Orleans, Rickles continues to be a popular performer in venues throughout the country.
