Another comedy legend gone. Joan Rivers passed away today after her life support was switched off following a heart attack last week. I remember when I was about 13 I bought a comedy album called “What becomes of a Legend” by some woman I had never heard of, I played that album until the grooves wore out. A few years back , when Joan was in her late 70s , I saw her perform live in Sydney. It was friggin hilarious. She was on stage for a good 2 hours and didn’t miss a beat. What surprised me the most was how much local and current events she had researched and used in her show. Love her or hate her, she was a legend. Nearly all my favourite comedians are now gone, Freddie Prinze, George Carlin , Jonathon Winters, Robin Williams and Joan Rivers. What a bummer.
