Emmy-winning comedienne Joan Rivers conjures chuckles with stand-up inspired by her family life, celebrity encounters, and adventures on television shows such as The Celebrity Apprentice and E!’s Fashion Police. Impeccably timed and saltier than a pickle juggling soft pretzels, Rivers’s routine pairs classic jokes with off-kilter observations. In addition to making TV history as the first sole guest host of The Tonight Show, the entertainer helped launch the Fox network with The Late Show Starring Joan Rivers in 1986. Though no two shows are identical, this performance may touch on Rivers’s travels to England or lessons learned while proffering jewellery on QVC. Armed with a keen fashion sense and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, she also excels at scrutinizing red carpets before taking them home to use as afghans.
