Don Rickles Early Life Story, Family Background and Education

Rickles was born Donald Jay Rickles in Queens, New York, on May 8, 1926. He was Jewish. His father Max Rickles (1897–1953) emigrated in 1903 with his Lithuanian parents from Kaunas (then in the Russian Empire); his mother Etta Rickles (née Feldman; 1898–1984) was born in New York City to Austrian immigrant parents. Rickles grew up in Jackson Heights.

After graduating from Newtown High School in 1944, he enlisted in the United States Navy and served during World War II on the motor torpedo boat tender USS Cyrene as a seaman first class. He was honorably discharged in 1946. Two years later, intending to be a dramatic actor, he studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and then played bit parts on television. Frustrated by a lack of acting work, Rickles began performing comedy in clubs in New York, Miami, and Los Angeles. He became known as an insult comedian when he responded to his hecklers. The audience enjoyed these insults more than his prepared material, so he incorporated them into his act.

When he began his career in the early 1950s, Rickles started to call ill-mannered members of the audience “hockey pucks”. His style was similar to that of an older insult comic Jack E. Leonard, though Rickles denied Leonard influenced his style. During an interview on Larry King Live, Rickles credited Milton Berle’s comedy style for inspiring him to enter show business.

They had two children: Mindy Rickles and Larry Rickles. According to Rickles’ memoir, his grandchildren Ethan and Harrison Mann are much more impressed by his role as Mr. Potato Head than by any of his other achievements. Barbara Rickles died from non-Hodgkin lymphoma on March 14, 2021, exactly 56 years after the couple were married.

Rickles befriended mobster “Crazy” Joe Gallo following a performance at the Copacabana in 1972. Gallo, whom Rickles had ribbed mercilessly during his set, despite being warned not to do so, accepted Rickles’ ribbings in good humor and invited him to Umberto’s Clam House after the show. Rickles declined the offer. That night, a gunfight erupted at Umberto’s, killing Gallo.

Rickles performed at the inaugurations of Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush with his friend Frank Sinatra, although Rickles himself was a “lifelong” Democrat.
