The time Joan Rivers took on the heckler

Joan Rivers died today, and my friend Ryan posted this quick video of Joan taking on a heckler a few years back.

Wow. I’m not entirely sure I’d call the man a heckler. He was, rather, a ticked off father with zero sense of humor. This was, after all, Joan Rivers. Everyone is fair game, including herself. And so long as the joke is told with love, and is obviously not seriously meant to hurt people, I think almost anything is fair game.

Still, damn.


I did some googling, and in fact Joan River’s mom went deaf later in life. Rivers’ interview with Joy Behar is really interesting. She gets into a lot of the controversies she created, or at least that surrounded her, over the years.
