She really was the first female comic who never held back. I enjoyed her back in the day on Hollywood Squares.
In in her last onstage performance, Joan Rivers was presenting new comedy material at Manhattan's Laurie Beechman Theatre on August 27th. According to one fan who saw the show, she had joked about her own mortality mere hours before suffering a heart attack that landed her in the hospital.
"I could go at any moment. I could lay here and go over... and it would be in the papers and you all could look at each other and say I was there the night Joan Rivers passed."
Hilarious....not enough comedians brave enough to push the bar....
Who will push the limits the right way the way Joan could.
She was great on that show along with Soupy Sales et.al.
RIP Joan..Say hello to Johnny for me !
He might still be holding a grudge. Hopefully they can work it out.
A true comedy legend. Fearless, funny and the only woman to ever host a network late night show.
I admit I was never a fan of Joan Rivers but always* respected her wit, drive and place in history. There were of course comedic women talents way before Joan Rivers (such as Sophie Tucker) but Joan made comedic women a main stay for the masses. She took the torch one step further than Phillis Diller.
RIP Joan Rivers
To make people laugh is a talent. To make the world laugh is a gift. Thoughts & prayers are with Joan Rivers' family. She was one of a kind.
A bold, very funny lady. Always enjoyed her and will miss her great wit.
That was my first real exposure to her. To me she made the show!
She was pretty freakin' awesome.
Heaven just got a lot funnier today. R.I.P.
Very sad news. RIP Joan.
I spent several years hanging out at Saturday Night Live on Saturday nights and then going to the after parties. I had a friend who was an associate producer. Met Joan Rivers when she hosted the show in the early/mid 80s. She was so nice, quick and so funny. Talked to everyone who wanted to talk to her. She asked me what I did on the show and I told her I didn't work there and I was a sales manager for a computer company. She then asked if I was Jewish. When I said yes, she said, I need to introduce you to my daughter but she's a little too young for you.
Joan and Lucy, now cracking wise together. R.I.P.
I met Joan Rivers a lifetime ago at a local theatre in the round. She was gracious to all of us. Ms. Rivers was able to connect with an individual very quickly. I still remember that meeting. Great lady.
I know I already posted already in this thread. What I didn't tell you is I cried when I heard the news of Joan's death. I'm a manly guy and I cried... There I said it...I loved here since the 60's. Didn't matter to me that she made fun of everybody because she made fun of herself more so than anyone else. I have total respect for her. I hope she's in a better place now......
News reports were confused at first. For a while I had the impression she was undergoing another round of cosmetic surgery, but they showed an Endoscopy center, and my impression now is that she was being scoped for an issue with her throat, usually a minor procedure, as I acknowledge that anesthesia always carries some risk, especially for the elderly.
