Powerful. Personal. Wow!

Jimmy Kimmel’s tribute to Don Rickles


First, my thanks to my good friend, Bob Wood, for not only bringing this to my attention, but for providing the title with his words.

If you think you’re funny and that you can’t or shouldn’t do anything that’s not funny because of your listeners’ expectations, think again.

The unexpected is always an attention-grabber.

When you trust yourself and your listeners enough to be authentically vulnerable in their presence, it brings them even closer to you.

If all you ever try to achieve on your show is laughs, you’re missing a huge opportunity.
