Wow. Two comedy legends gone within a month.
I have to say I’m not as broken up over the loss of Joan Rivers as I was over Robin Williams. Her acerbic wit was great. Although her acerbic style was never one that I wanted to emulate, if for no other reason than I’m not that plugged into popular culture. Yet, I will still miss her.
We saw her at Harrah’s earlier in April. She joked that she’s old and “could go at any time” and that if she died during the show “you’ll be able to talk about it at parties for years”. I’m glad I can’t really do that. I’m also glad that I got the chance to see her live.
That comedy club in heaven is getting a pretty amazing lineup.
