A DON DEAL

Closer Weekly - - News -

Leave ’em laugh­ing. Be­fore pass­ing away in April, comic Don Rick­les teamed up with AARP for one last ven­ture — an on­line talk show called Din­ner With Don. Fea­tur­ing Don con­vers­ing with such no­table hockey pucks as Billy Crys­tal, Robert De Niro and

Jimmy Kim­mel, it was cre­ated, ac­cord­ing to AARP Stu­dios VP Jef­frey Ea­gle, “to bridge older and younger gen­er­a­tions of comics and ac­tors through laugh­ter and shared ex­pe­ri­ences. With Don’s pass­ing, the se­ries turned out to be a touch­ing and hi­lar­i­ous trib­ute.” The first episode pre­miered on Sept. 25 with rap­per Snoop Dogg.
