JOAN RIVERS is an internationally renowned comedian, Emmy-award-winning television talk-show host, Tony-award-nominated actress, bestselling author, playwright, screenwriter, film director, columnist, lecturer, syndicated radio host, jewelry designer, cosmetic-company entrepreneur, and red-carpet fashion laureate.
Joan Rivers is a true pioneer, creating her own brand of irreverent, unconventional comedy and forging her remarkable rise to stardom in the entertainment world. Enduring tawdry clubs, Borscht Belt showrooms, and grimy Greenwich Village cabarets, her comedy career skyrocketed in 1968 when she first appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. An entertainment legend, Joan was the first woman to break the glass ceiling of late-night television. After she was chosen to be the only permanent guest host on The Tonight Show for three years, she went on to become the first woman ever to host her own late night talk show, The Late Show Starring Joan Rivers on the Fox Network.
Joan continues to dazzle live concert audiences both in this country and abroad. In 1989, Joan triumphantly returned to daytime TV with The Joan Rivers Show. After creating and hosting Live from the Red Carpet for E! (1996-2004), Joan returned to anchor that network’s hugely successful franchise Fashion Police, hosting both its hour-long weekly broadcasts and its awards-season specials, reaching more than 10 million people worldwide.
