Comic Don Rickles has postponed his appearance at the Turlock Community Theatre.
The legendary funnyman was slated to appear in Turlock on Jan. 25. But a recent leg infection forced him to reschedule his show. Turlock Community Theatre manager Kit Casey said a new date has yet to be set, but it should be sometime in the next few months. Tickets are $69-$129.
Rickles, 87, has joked on Twitter about his recovery, saying he has stolen his dog’s leash and is having his wife take him on walks instead.
