Comedian Don Rickles has once again proved that he could make people laugh. He bagged this year's Emmy Award for outstanding individual performance in a comedy, variety or musical program. He received two standing ovations during the function - one when he went on stage as a presenter with Kathy Griffin and another when he received the award.
Mr. Johnny Carson called Don Rickles as 'Mr. Warmth', and interestingly, Rickles appeared in the John Landis directed film titled Mr. Warmth - The Don Rickles Project, which was about his life and 60-year-career in the show business.
