One of the hardest working women in the business, Joan Rivers wears many hats. Comedienne. Author. Actress. Playwright. Talk show host. Jewelry designer. Red-carpet fashion laureate. Joan rose to stardom by creating her own brand of irreverent, unconventional comedy. Within three years, she had her own daytime show, That Show with Joan Rivers — one of the first to be syndicated. She went on to become the first guest host of The Tonight Show. In 1990, Joan won an Emmy® Award for Outstanding Talk Show Host and was presented with her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. By using humor, compassion, and tenacity, Joan triumphed over personal tragedy and attained extraordinary professional success. She embodies class, confidence, and chutzpah in all the right proportions.
