Legendary ‘Mr. Warmth’ Don Rickles returns to Lake Tahoe
The legendary Don Rickles returns to South Shore Lake Tahoe for a one-night stand at MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa, Saturday, Feb. 16, to unleash his vim, vinegar and venom.
The lovable Rickles honed his craft to perfection with 60 years in nightclubs and major showrooms and venues throughout the country, winning favor and friendship among entertainment legends Frank Sinatra, Jackie Gleason, Dean Martin and countless others.
Most people identify Rickles by his many appearances on television with talk show hosts Johnny Carson, Larry King, Jay Leno and David Letterman. He recently starred in the highly acclaimed, John Landis-directed documentary “Mr. Warmth: The Don Rickles Project,” which debuted on HBO in December 2007, after having screened at the New York Film Festival and the AFI Fest in Hollywood.
His movie career highlights include his appearance in “Casino,” which starred Robert De Niro, Sharon Stone and Joe Pesci, and was directed by Martin Scorsese; computer animated features, “Toy Story 1 and 2” for Walt Disney Pictures; and the now cult classic, “Kelly’s Heroes,” as well as early career roles in “Run Silent, Run Deep” and “Rat Race.” He starred in live stage productions and has had two best-selling comedy albums. In Spring 2007, Rickles became a best selling author with the release of Rickles’ Book by Simon & Schuster.
MontBleu guests will see Rickles in action at South Lake Tahoe for the first time in seven years. Entering from stage-left to his arena under the strain of theme song, “El Toro”, folks in the front can expect to be verbally charged.
Tickets are $50/$60 plus tax. Reserved seating is available. To purchase tickets, call the MontBleu ticket office at 775-586-2000 or at 1-800-648-3353. Tickets are also available from Ticket Master, visit http://www.ticketmaster.com.
