RIP Joan Rivers

Joan Rivers died today at the age of 81.

Born Joan Molinsky, she was a barrier breaker and an icon. Gutsy, honest and ball breaking to the point of being almost rude or insensitive to some, she passes into history as a legend.

She was widely known for her red carpet and fashion commentaries with her daughter, Melissa.

The clip above is from my earliest memory of her, a cameo that she had in 1984 movie, Muppets Take Manhattan.

Sometimes, we don’t see the trailblazers until they are no longer with us. Joan was without a doubt a trailblazer. Without her influence, we would not have the women in comedy that we do today.

My thoughts and prayers are with those who knew her best.

RIP.
