It's disingenuous to call Joan Rivers a piece of work. She was all work, a glutton for execution who was never, ever without a joke. It's hard to believe such a tireless icon's life can just end, but we'll always have the tons and tons of standup, fashion expertise, and general rancor she left behind. And we'll also have the women Joan inspired.
In today's episode of THE SNAP, we salute Joan Rivers and her legacy. This means we're counting up the funny women who followed in Joan's footsteps. Certainly there are plenty of male comics who owe Joan a lot, but — hey! — I just don't feel like talking about them.
