Late Night Roundup: Angry Old Guys Don Rickles and Lewis Black Do Their Things

Two of America’s funniest angry old guys made late night appearances last night. First, “Mr. Warmth” Don Rickles stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to bust Kimmel’s balls for being a “dumbbell host” and to admit he realizes nobody is interested in buying his app. At 86, Rickles is still spry and quick to berate Kimmel at every chance he gets.

The All-Star Version of the Risk! Podcast Is Chock Full of Famous Comics' Stories

Podcast aficionado Joe Berkowitz already introduced us to the Risk! podcast, hosted by The State's Kevin Allison, but the most current episode is a special one.
