Death of a Comic: Joan Rivers

Originally posted on Saturday, 06 September 2014 at ROPL.org.

On September 4, 2014, the world lost one of the most prominent and ground breaking female comics: Joan Rivers. She broke into the world of comedy, leaving the doors wide open for the many female comics who followed. She continued, up until her death, to make us all laugh. Known for her stand-up comedy, Joan Rivers was also a producer, actor and TV show host.

The library has a small display in her honor, with several of the books she’s written. We also own a DVD of her comedy and life, along with a couple of the movies she’s been in. Be sure to come into the library and check them out.
