Jimmy Kimmel paid a heartfelt tribute to his friend Don Rickles, who died Thursday at age 90.

Don Rickles, the master insult comic who created laughs with ridicule and sarcasm in a decades-long career that earned him the facetious nickname "Mr. Warmth", died on Thursday at his Los Angeles home from kidney failure, his publicist said.

The monologue from last night's Jimmy Kimmel Live was not the show's standard fare. In fact, he struggled to hold back the tears and got very emotional. "And I'll tell you right up front that I'm going to cry - probably a lot, which is embarrassing".

'But we lost someone that we and I love very much today, ' he said, only hours after learning of Rickles's death. Kimmel tried to book Rickles on his show but it took four years to pull it off. "And I know it's insane to say he was too young".

In 2005, he appeared on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno shortly after Carson's death to recall and remember the many appearances of internationally renowned celebrities on Carson's show and the impact the talk-show had on American popular culture.

"He was a amusing guy; I know that's not a news flash". "The Late Show" host Stephen Colbert shared his own anecdote about meeting the comedian backstage at the Emmys. "Who needs Sinatra, your picture of us together is much more important".

Kimmel was not alone in his late-night remembrances of Rickles. Just endless mischief and nonsense, and a guy who would make the audience go completely insane.

Rickles was known for poking fun at people, regardless of the color of their skin or their profession.

In 2014, the legendary director joined "Casino" star Robert De Niro in roasting Rickles during Spike TV's "One Night Only: An All-Star Comedy Tribute to Don Rickles". He also helped Rickles become a headliner in Las Vegas. "He just looked at me and said, 'Oh, I'm so sorry to hear Saturday Night Live was canceled.' I was like, 'Oh, it wasn't canceled.' He just went, 'A guy can dream!'" Our thoughts are with his family.

Kimmel reminisced about a dinner party he enjoyed with Rickles once at Mario Batali's Los Angeles restaurant Mozza.
