The talk show host and comedienne, Joan Rivers has passed away at the ripe old age of 81. May she find peace and contentment in the hereafter.


Since the past half century, she had been on top of her game. Joan Rivers was known for her witty one-liners and out-and-out straightforwardness that bordered on the risqué. 

She had had many cosmetic surgeries too during her lengthy 81 years. At 1:17 pm, her daughter announced the sad fact that her mother had departed for the next world. 

Joan had had a botched throat operation due to which she had stopped breathing for awhile. She was rushed to an ICU and put on life support. 

It was here that she entered a comatose state and was stuck between life and death since the past few days. Her friends and family members were by her bedside when Joan breathed her last. 

Joan began her career on The Tonight Show and she not only reached heights of success but was known for her biting wit with which she attacked anything or anyone she deemed hypocritical. 

Joan was really into her work. She was hosting the show called Fashion Police. And she was doing two other reality TV shows too. Rivers is reputed to have said that she didn’t need drugs. 

All her life she had spoken the truth and that was enough of a drug for her. She had chosen comedy as an outlet and it had become a way of life for her. She even self-deprecatingly poked fun at her many plastic surgery procedures. 

Joan said in a humorous vein that they would probably donate her body to Tupperware in the end. Throughout her career she canoodled with the likes of such legendary colleagues as Bill Cosby, Richard Pryor, George Carlin and Woody Allen. 

She entered the high stakes market with The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Carson himself once told her that she was going to be a star soon. Joan loved entertaining the public by her wisecrack style of out-loud humor. 

She and her audience were one when they were all laughing uproariously at her shows. Now she is no more with us and the world is a lonelier place without her in it. May she find consolation with her Creator.  

Many celebs and fellows of Joan Rivers paid tribute to the legendary comedian. THR posted reactions of some celebs on death of Joan Rivers which are given below:

David Letterman called Rivers a comedy "pioneer" on Thursday's The Late Show. "Here's a woman, a real pioneer for other women looking for careers in stand-up comedy," said Letterman. "And talk about guts — she would come out here and sit in this chair and say some things that were unbelievable, just where you would have to swallow pretty hard … but it was hilarious … the force of her comedy was overpowering."

Jimmy Fallon choked up while talking about getting a kiss from Rivers on his first Tonight Show. "It was really emotional and really nice. I don't want to show a clip because I don't think it will do her justice," the emotional Fallon said, before encourging people to watch the 2010 documentary Joan Rivers: Piece of Work. "We loved her. We will definitely miss her."

Jimmy Kimmel praised her as a "pioneer for women" who loved her job so much that she "never wanted to stop. He also showed one of his interviews with Rivers, in which she prayed her grandson would be gay so he would be impressed that she knew Judy Garland. "My thoughts go out to Joan's daughter Melissa and her grandson. The good news is there is less pressure for him to be gay now," Kimmel joked. "There is less pressure for all of us to be gay now. We will miss you Joan.

Meanwhile, Jon Stewart ended The Daily Show with a short tribute to Rivers, followed by a moment of zen dedicated to a 1967 standup routine performed on The Ed Sullivan Show. "There are very few people in my business who you could saw are actually groundbreaking talents. Joan Rivers was one of them," Stewart said. "Unfortunately, she has passed away. We send the very best to her family."

Conan O'Brien recalled watching Rivers when she would guest host on Johnny Carson's The Tonight Show. "When she did, it was an event. Everybody in the country would talk about it the next day," O'Brien said on TBS' Conan. "People would gather in the living room. Everyone would howl with laughter. ... At that time she was so outrageous and her comedy — it felt so out of the bounds and people were just blown away."

Craig Ferguson called it "a sad day for us in the comedy community." "We lost Joan Rivers today, one of the all-time greats," he said on The Late Late Show. "Yes, I know, it’s terribly sad. I just hope that when Joan meets the man upstairs he is wearing something she can insult.”

Seth Meyers said during her Late Night appearance last month, Rivers told more jokes faster than any guest he'd had on. "I wish she were here right now, because if she were here right now, she would make a joke about how she just passed away — and she would get away with it, because it would be really funny," Meyers said.

Some twitter responses off different celebs are given below:
