Joan Rivers filmed this special at age 78- which is amazing because she has the energy level of a 20 year old and her humor could not be more current. There are some truly heinous and hilarious jokes in here. It has a solid five stars on Netflix.
Joan Rivers was a trailblazing legend and there was no one like her. She was one of the first female comediennes at a time when women were essentially second class citizens. She was a survivor of much hardship (among other things, her husband committed suicide). She was a lovely Jewish woman who made Auschwitz jokes that made people howl with laughter and nervousness. Joan wasn’t afraid to piss people off and she was a great teacher- she enlightened people and showed them where they were taking themselves and various issues way too seriously. God bless you Joan.
Here’s Joan Rivers vs. a heckler. It’s awesome:
