Don Rickles will get the Don Rickles treatment from fellow comedians on May 28 on Spike TV during One Night Only: an All-Star Comedy Tribute to Don Rickles with David Letterman, Jerry Seinfeld, Jon Stewart, Jimmy Kimmel and Bob Newhart entertaining and celebrating the comedy icon. The only thing not announced is how quickly the celebration will turn into a roast of the 87-year old insult comic. Robert De Niro, Martin Scorsese, Tracy Morgan, John Stamos, Regis Philbin, Ray Romano and Brad Garrett will also attend the event to honor Rickles’s legendary career. “The genius of Rickles is in danger, nobody is safe, and what you can expect is a night of comedy from these superstars worthy of a legend,” said Casey Patterson, Executive Vice President of Event Production & Talent Development at Viacom. “It truly will be One Night Only.” The 90-minute special will tape at the historic Apollo Theater in New York City only two days before the comedian’s 88th birthday. One Night Only will air on Wednesday, May 28 at 9 pm ET on Spike TV. This time, not even Don Rickles will escape the jabs.
