It's no surprise to anyone that Joan Rivers paved the way for many, many comediennes!
She was the one who did a lot of the things they do now… first!
So it's understandable that most of the women in comedy view the Fashion Police host as one of their biggest idols!
This makes it that much harder for us and everyone to believe that she's actually gone. Totally heartbreaking.
Joan, I love you. So much. My heart is broken.

My fav joke in "A Piece if Work" looking at the wine's vintage and saying "May" Relevant and funny all the way to the end. Thank you Joan.

Joan Rivers. :( If you are young and only know her from Fashion Police, watch the doc "A Piece of Work" to see what a true pioneer she was!
