“I’ll tell you right up front that I’m going to cry, probably a lot, which is embarrassing,” said Kimmel, his voice already starting to break. “But I’m not good with this sort of thing and I’m sorry, especially to those of you who came here to see the show in person because that’s probably not what you came for, but we lost someone that we and I love very much today.”

Kimmel then aired this hilarious montage of clips of Don Rickles appearing on his show over the years.

But Jimmy Kimmel wasn't the only late night host who paid homage to the legend.

Seth Meyers also took a moment to remember Don Rickles.

RIP Don Rickles. If heaven exists, we know you are there roasting all the angels.
