Like the rest of us today, I was saddened by the news of Joan Rivers’ death. As a female comedian I admired her and thought she was damn funny. She paved the way for us female comics. Back when she first started doing comedy there was her and Phyllis Diller, that was it. It is an aggressive, male dominated profession, even to this day.
I will miss you Ms. Rivers and I appreciate all you have done for the ladies in stand up comedy.
