Farewell Phyllis Diller
As you may know, America lost one of it’s funniest ladies yesterday, as Phyllis Diller died at the age of 95. Phyllis was a breakthrough stand up comedienne, in the days when most comics were men. She made us laugh with her outfits, her self deprecating humor and was just plain funny. We will miss her great contribution to making us laugh, and we’ll miss that great laugh of hers.
Here’s an early performance by Phyllis Diller on “The Ed Sullivan Show”.
