See Joan Rivers Live at bergenPAC in Englewood, New Jersey Thursday October 22nd at 8pm Joan Rivers. Joan Rivers who is currently appearing on NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice” and celebrating the publication of her two new books Men Are Stupid And They Like Big Boobs and Murder At the Academy Awards, is a force of nature and one of the hardest working celebrities in the world.
Comedienne, Tony-nominated actress, bestselling author, Emmy Award-winning television talk-show host, playwright, screenwriter, motion picture director, columnist, lecturer, syndicated radio host, jewelry designer and cosmetic company entrepreneur, red carpet fashion laureate, businesswoman and, most importantly to her, mother and grandmother. She is exhausted! Most recently COMEDY CENTRAL added Joan Rivers to its Emmy-nominated Roast franchise. The network rolled out the red carpet to Roast one of comedy's most trailblazing female comediennes who is celebrated for her ingenuity, endurance and laughs!
Sure, she’s had some work done (you would too if you were in your 70s and staring down the red carpet). With insane persistence, she created her own brand of irreverent, unconventional comedy and to forge her remarkable rise to stardom in the entertainment world. Within three years of her debut she was hosting “That Show With Joan Rivers,” one of the first syndicated daytime shows. Her own “Late Show with Joan Rivers” was launched in 1986, for which she won an Emmy as Outstanding Talk Show Host the following year–and her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Using her unique gifts of humor, compassion and tenacity has enabled Joan to triumph and attain extraordinary professional success.
Amazingly enough, Joan is always working on new projects. In 2002, she brought her critically acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe Festival one-woman show, “Broke and Alone,” to London’s Theatre Royal Haymarket, and received the first standing ovation at the Theatre in fourteen years. Subsequent performances, including a week at the Canon Theatre in Los Angeles, have all garnered “hottest ticket in town” status. From her signature question, “Can we talk?” (Officially a Federal trademark), to her red-carpet mantra, “Who are you wearing?” the woman who asks the questions that always get the answers. The legendary comedienne, known for her razor-sharp wit and tongue to match, is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon evident from her victory at the Celebrity Apprentice! Don’t miss the radiant Joan Rivers at bergenPAC.
