Joan Rivers

Emmy Award Winner


Brad Stewart

March 11, 2011


Described as a post-menopausal Lenny Bruce, Joan Rivers delivers a raunchy, politically incorrect evening of stand-up comedy. One of the hardest working women in show business, she is a best-selling author, Tony-nominated actress, playwright, screenwriter, motion picture director, Emmy Award-winning television talk-show host, jewelry designer, businesswoman and mother to "what's-her-name" Melissa. She is on the board of God's Love We Deliver, National Chairwoman of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and gives lectures around the world on suicide prevention and survival. With her trademark mix of outspoken wit, savvy and compassion, she continues to be one of America's most admired first ladies of comedy. THIS SHOW CONTAINS ADULT LANGUAGE AND CONTENT.

*Please note there will be no late seating for this event.

Joan With Daughter Melissa RiversRed Carpet

Where there is a red carpet, there is Joan Rivers with a microphone in hand and her daughter at her side asking her signature question, "Who are you wearing?" Her brutal honesty and stream of consciousness commentating made her a regular on E! Entertainment Television and a trash-talking guilty pleasure for decades. Her new reality show "Fashion Police" is airing now!
