Don Rickles is one of the 20th Century's most famous funnymen. For almost 40 years he has appeared in top showrooms in Atlantic City, Reno, Lake Tahoe and Las Vegas. He is regarded among the world's top entertainers. Rickles has acted in comedic and dramatic roles, but is best known as an insult comic.

Don Rickles is also highly visible on TV, as well as in motion pictures, including appearances in Universal Pictures' Casino, directed by Martin Scorsese, appearing with Robert De Niro, Sharon Stone and Joe Pesci, Toy Story, a revolutionary computer animated feature, 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 is also seen in the mega-hit Toy Story 2. Additionally, he has starred in live stage productions and, along the way, has had two best-selling comedy albums.

It is well known that Rickles has nothing against the people that he insults during his routine, and that it is all just part of the act. Although sarcastically nicknamed "Mr. Warmth" due to his offensive and insensitive stage personality, in reality most know him to be actually quite genial and pleasant. It has been said that being insulted by Rickles is like "wearing a badge of honor". 

Michael Martocci is a special talent. He's not an impersonator, but a gifted singer who performs Sinatra's catalog with a genuine stage presence and swagger reminiscent of Francis Albert.
