RANT: Comedian Joan Rivers Dies at 81; Requiescat In Pacem

Comedian Joan Rivers Dies at 81
Joan Rivers, a talk-show host, actress and red-carpet critic who rose to the top of comedy’s ranks while unapologetically skewering everyone and everything she passed along the way, died Thursday in New York following complications from a medical procedure. She was 81 years old.

Ms. Rivers rose to prominence in the 1960s and 1970s on the talk-show scene. After first appearing on “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” in 1965, Ms. Rivers started a talk-show career that included stints on “The Tonight Show” and “The Late Show Starring Joan Rivers” on Fox in 1986. Ms. Rivers become a permanent fixture on TV after that, most famously as a critic of celebrity fashion.
