A Piece of Work

I saw the new film about Joan Rivers, "A Piece of Work" last night and very much enjoyed it. Joan is a workaholic, and she trailblazed the way for talents like Kathy Griffin, Wanda Sykes, and Ellen DeGeneres... Joan lives life to the hilt at 75, and loves to work - she considers herself an actress and works like nobody could believe. I especially enjoyed the glimpses of her palatial apartment, very French. I once attended her show as an audience member when she was on television, and the energy she brings to a stage is incredible. Phyllis Diller started her career late in life, and kept going into her nineties, and that is what dear Joan is hoping to do as well. Good for her, work is what keeps her forever young... Joan is a real New Yorker, and work equals glamour in the city that never sleeps ! DF *****
