rare treat of dramatic acting from Rickles
25 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just happened upon this episode on a rerun. The premise is Rickles' character is a washed up comedian. He finally gets a shot at redemption after suffering a nervous breakdown on stage. The scene where he is trying out different jokes to a dead-still audience is great. Spoiler alert: However he cannot deal with the crowd's response and has a subsequent breakdown. Very poignant acting on Rickles' part, and although it was somewhat in character as far as being a comedian, it was believable as a portrayal of a broken man. Have seen other comedic roles Rickles had in dramas but this was a rare time he played a dramatic character and it was great.
