Richard Lewis went to social media to mourn the death of Don Rickles
— but the 69-year-old comedian looks shockingly sick himself! The National ENQUIRER
caught him picking up a pizza while looking like he hadn't eaten in ages. It was a troubling turn for the comic who once claimed he was "lucky to be alive" after decades of drugs and drinking!
The beloved comic currently isn't booked for any shows — and, as seen in this video, sounded weak and strained while talking to photographers outside of the L.A. pizzeria. Richard even joked about his "new diet," saying: "I only eat the crust."
But there's nothing funny about Richard's scrawny build, with the comic looking like he's down to skin and bones beneath his traditional all-black attire.
And while the comic seemed happy to talk, but he also seemed to tire easily — and quickly flipped the bird to a photographer to let him know that the public appearance was over!
