ABSTRACT
Don Rickles, a stand-up comedian renewed for decades of insulting everyone under the Sun with a razor-sharp cynical wit, rules the day in Mr. Warmth: The Don Rickles Project, a documentary combining clips from Rickles' never-before-taped Las Vegas routine with interviews from some of comedy's biggest contemporary names to provide viewers with a true-life tale of one of the last of a dying breed of performers.
