I was quite surprised that there wasn't a thread already for this amazing lady.

At 77 Joan is as sharp, cutting and funny as ever. She's been in the biz for years, had some personal problems but still comes out fighting.

I watched her 'A work in Progress' recently and have the so much respect for her. Who knows where her career could've gone if Johnny Carson hadn't ruined her chances at NBC?

I agree she is one of my favourites

:D
Now to look for a Jackie Mason thread :)

She was due to be in London for shows too.

Some people had tickets.

RIP Joan Rivers - the woman who was right about Obama but sufficiently diplomatic not to say where the bodies had been buried prior to 2008.

I had the pleasure of working with her once.
A very funny lady with unbelievable energy for any age, let alone hers. Oh, and incredible heels!

You've all just prompted me to watch about an hour of different Joan Rivers clips. Such a funny lady :)

My already-considerable respect for Joan went up several notches when she suggested that, with the divorce statistics what they are, some of those 911 widows must have jumped for joy when they husbands were killed and they got (up to) $7 million apiece in compensation.

The very best comedy is often based upon unpalatable and unspeakable truths.

I always love when people critique racism by being racism.

You're being ironic aren't you.

She openly supported genocide & an ongoing illegal occupation in Palestine.
If pointing that out makes me a "racist", I suppose the next insult you'll hurl at me is that I'm an "anti-semite" too....
