Joan Rivers: 1933-2014

Fagburn remembers the Joan Rivers he never knew:

About ten years ago I went to see the recording of a pilot for a Channel 4 gameshow she was hosting.
It was awful, just completely the wrong format for her considerable comic talents, and she clearly hated doing it.
Thankfully there were endless technical hitches that halted filming.
During which Joan kept the audience amused by telling jokes about the then ongoing Michael Jackson kiddy-fiddling trial.
It was one of the funniest things I've ever witnessed.
Sadly, all wonderfully unbroadcastable.
So that's how I'd like to remember Joan.
And not as the racist Zionist bitch whose last public statement was saying Palestinian kids in the Gaza Strip 'deserve to be dead'.

PS Oops! Nearly forgot - she loved The Gays!
