    A young Rickles starting out today would have had his career killed before it got off the ground by the professionally "offended" crowd.

    "Robin, they wanted to throw me a tribute. Im too busy with AGT, so I gave them permission to honor Rickles instead. You know I dont want any attention. I just want judge, am I right?"

    Why would Howard be invited to a show where you are supposed to be funny?

    Wiggy could still be there. The end of the list of stars reads..."and many more". Maybe he's fallen far enough to be a D-lister who's covered in the catch all "many more"?

    Watching this! It's Funny as fuck! Seinfeld hosting with his new shaved head look. Johnny Depp, Deniro and Scorsese cracking up at the most unPC jokes I've heard in a long time on TV. Every heavy hitter in comedy in attendance, Wiggy and Cunt no where to be seen. It's being held in Wiggy's home town at the Apollo Theater.

    Imagine these Rickles jokes were said today with all the PC no comedy allowed people. Holy shit, it would be a shit storm all over every channel.

    I just saw a clip where he kissed Sammy Davis and said to the audience do I have any black on my lips? The crowd was dying! Can you imagine the hell if he said that today? The PC police would be out for a lynching and Wiggy's vagina would bleed!

    Rickles has the quickest, sharpest wit in American history.

    Definite D-lister... but not worthy of an invitation to a roast where people with actual talent are scheduled to appear.
