TRIBUTE : JOAN RIVERS .. 1933 - 2014

It was with great sadness I write this post on hearing of the death of one of my favourite ladies, a true great and an irreplaceable legend of comedy and one of the nicest persons you could meet. Joan 
Backstage in 2010 with Joan C & Sacha Newley
Rivers was also a very good friend to Joan for many years and as we remember her, here are some photo's of the two legendary 
With Lynda Carter & Michael Feinstein
Joan's over the years.. A memorable encounter in 1984 on 'The Tonight Show' in which Miss Rivers hosted, where Joan was a guest and Joan R asked Joan C 'who was the best lover you ever had?'.. Joan answered in her inimitable style.. 'Your husband!'..
The Two Joan's on The Tonight Show
I myself have met Joan many times over the years and she was always warm, friendly and always delighted to chat. I had been looking forward to seeing her next month on her UK tour.. Which in a cruel twist of irony was called .. 'Quick Before They Close The Lid Tour'..
Sadly it was not meant to be.. However I will always cherish all the
Joan & Percy with Martha Stewart & Joan R in 2013 at Dennis Basso
laughter she has given me over the years and the memories of seeing her both on stage and off.. God bless, dear Joan..
