Rest In Peace, Ms. Rivers
What the fuck is happening? We lose two of the most heavy hitting comedians in the last millennium in the span of a month… Too many over the past year. Who did we piss off? Is there some sort of cosmic unbalance? Or comic unbalance? Do we owe somebody money?
Comedienne Joan Rivers passed away today following complications from minor throat surgery a week ago, in New York. She was 81.
“It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my mother, Joan Rivers.
She passed peacefully at 1:17 p.m. ET surrounded by family and close friends. My
son and I would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff of Mount
Sinai Hospital for the amazing care they provided for my mother,” Melissa Rivers, 46,
said in a statement given shortly after her mothers’ passing.
For more than 50 years, Joan Rivers blazed the way for women in comedy, we’ll miss you on the red carpet and your cameos in shows like Louie. 2014 can lick me…
