It is sad to confirm that Joan Rivers has passed away. The 81-year-old comedian died peacefully after being in a medical induced coma, followed by life support. Rivers had previously went in for surgery on her vocal chords and became unresponsive. Her daughter, Melissa Rivers, released the following statement regarding her mother’s passing.

“It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my mother, Joan Rivers. She passed peacefully at 1:17 p.m. surrounded by family and close friends. My son and I would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff of Mount Sinai Hospital for the amazing care they provided for my mother.

Cooper and I have found ourselves humbled by the outpouring of love, support, and prayers we have received from around the world. They have been heard and appreciated.

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.”

The current generation is more familiar with Rivers’ recent work on “Fashion Police” and her reality show “Joan & Melissa.” Older generations know Rivers for her stand up comedy. She was a trailblazer for many of today’s biggest female comedians. Here is a look at some of her early stand up.
