    Rest in peace Mrs. Rivers, I'll remember you best as the voice of Francine's very very funny Bubby.

    Here’s a scene from The Muppets Take Manhattan with Miss Piggy and Joan Rivers as we remember her.

    Wow what a sad year this is turning out to be. She may have been a bit controversial at times but we can't deny Joan Rivers comedic timing. RIP to a great comic.

    She was just on Letterman a few months ago, and at her age was still outrageously funny. Thank you for all the years of laughter. You busted my gut more times than I can count.

    R.I.P. to one of the most crass, classless, arrogant, and hypocritical entertainers Hollywood ever produced.

    RIP, her scene in MTM cracks me up every time, and I hope now that when MTM airs on TV they will not cut that scene out. Besides MTM, she was awesome in Arthur, Shrek 2, and The Simpsons, sad news though not that sudden.

    This phrase gets tossed around a lot, but I really think we will never see the likes of her again. She was abrasive and inappropriate, often to the extreme, but she always turned that back around to herself and wasn't afraid to bring up her own troubled life in her act. She certainly was a major influence on a lot of comedians working today.

    RIP Joan! I personally liked she said whatever she felt and didn't give a rats behind what anyone thought. She didn't back down no matter how much she was criticized for it. I don't agree with a lot of her views but she didnt sugar coat things.

    People never gave her enough credit as a comedian. She was an excellent joke writer, and had impeccable delivery. It's a shame a lot of people couldn't look past her harsh exterior to see her brilliance.

    Joan was a lifelong New Yorker. She really wasn't all that Hollywood and that was kind of the point of her shtick. She thumbed her nose at movie stars and was never afraid to turn that same criticism loose on herself. In fact, she was her own worst critic! Here's one of my favorite jokes:

    [​IMG]
    Joan was outrageous, authentic and (from almost every report of those who met her) a very classy lady. Not every joke landed. Such is the life of a comedian. Not every choice she made was ideal. Such is the life if a trailblazer. Her life was full of tragedy and triumph and she never stopped working until the day she left us. I wish we'd have had more time with her, but I'm glad she got to go out on top.
