Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work

I grew up on comedy and comedians. Maybe when you had the kind of life I had you appreciated anyone who could make you smile. When I was little it was Bill Cosby. Bob Bromfield in the Cincinnati Enquirer. You get older in your teens and it was George Carlin and Cheech and Chong. On TV it was Carol Burnett, Tim Conway, Flip Wilson, Jonathon Winters, The Smothers Brothers, and  Laugh-In.

And there was this lady. I can still remember her telling a joke about mini and midi skirts. She said there were midi skirts and she liked them because she didn't have to shave her legs. Then minis came back and she looked like a gorilla in sweatsocks. That's funny.

Joan Rivers.
