In a special tribute show to air Friday, August 9, the 70-year-old funny girl was surprised by a bevy of famous faces including Regis Philbin, Joan Rivers, and Meredith Vieira!

We cannot wait to see this special tribute!
Joy's last official taping is Thursday August 8 and we'll def. be tuning in for the tears!
