Joan Rivers was able to bring laughter to every situation, always punctuating the moment perfectly with a joke. From her days with Johnny Carson to her moments with the Joan Rangers, she exuded a fearlessness many admired. Joan was never afraid to push the envelope and she was clearly never worried about rubbing anyone the wrong way. She said, “I succeeded by saying what everyone else was thinking.” This coupled with her ability to find comedy in every situation was Joan’s revered craft. The comedic genius once said, “Humor doesn’t come out of the good times, it comes out of the anger, pain and sorrow. Always the anger.”
As WE join countless friends, family and fans who continue to cope with this incredible loss, we find comfort in reminiscing about our favorite moments; the times Joan made us laugh so hard we started to cry and found it difficult to catch our breath. In a statement yesterday afternoon, Melissa said, “My mother’s greatest joy in life was to make people laugh. Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon.”
To honor this wish and to pay tribute to the iconic Joan Rivers, WE wanted to share with you the top Joan Knows Best moments that will continue to have us in stitches for years to come.
