I don't recognize half of them, but Rickles was great... and probably couldn't make it in today's PC environment. Pryor almost killed me on a couple of occasions... had me laughing so hard I couldn't breathe. What was special was how he insulted his own race, with now backlash. Loved Carlin. And Jerry Lewis was good, but really grew tiresome in his later career.

Good stuff.

It's like making a list of your favorite albums.

We ran into Don Rickles and Dom Deluise in an elevator in Atlantic City.
