Watch: New AARP Digital Series 'Dinner with Don' Premieres With Guest Sarah Silverman
Don Rickles, along with AARP Studios, created a special 13-episode series, Dinner with Don, to celebrate the life and legacy of the groundbreaking comedian. The show features a bevy of celebrity guests that all sit down to break bread and sip cocktails with Rickles. It was Rickles final project before his death at the age of 90 in April 2017.
The 13-episode series' roster includes the likes of Jimmy Kimmel, Snoop Dogg, Amy Poehler, Zach Galifianakis, Paul Rudd, Billy Crystal, Rich Eisen, Vince Vaughn, Marisa Tomei, Jonathan Silverman, Judd Apatow, Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese. The concept first started out as a way for younger industry icons to connect with an older generation through storytelling and shared experiences. “With Don’s passing, the series turned out to be a touching and hilarious tribute, featuring his very last work," said Jeffrey Eagle, VP of AARP Studios.
