  1. I am looking forward to watching and hope it will be a beautiful tribute to a wonderful life. She spread joy and laughter to so many for so long, nevertheless gone too soon.

  2. I love you Joan and you are an icon never to be forgotten. I know your in heaven making the angels laugh and driving Carson crazy. Thanks for all the laughs.

  3. NikkiRuthe – from TEXAS: Have always loved her for many many years.. – her journey to from where she came from to where she was just before her untimely death. She shows us all no matter where you come from you can make it. She will be missed by more than the family can imagine. I always was able to see her even on QVC… such a Lady!

  4. I still can’t believe she’s gone. She was bigger than life, and is totally unforgettable. RIP, dear Joan~ Miss you so much~

  5. I have this on DVD,it’s well worth watching,and shows how hard working she was,and an all round nice lady

  6. Thankyou for doing this show tonight- I look forward to watching. There is just something about Joan Rivers that touched many so deeply – she has that special “it” factor, even now. Joan will be greatly missed-

    1. I still miss her every day the way I miss my loving grand mom. She made me laugh so much just like ms joan. What a great mom u have Melissa. God bless always LUCIANA.

  7. Hey Joan I am ur fan all the way from New Delhi India,I have watched your videos on you tube and lemme tell u that ur the epitome and queen of comedy and you had the best gift for every one in the world in form of comedy and to make every one laugh with confidence as a stand-up comedian is not every one’s cuppa tea ,u had a god gifted talent which will now be only seen on social media no more live Joan Rivers.Fortunate are those people who met you and whom you made laugh even at the cost of cracking a joke on “Vagina” & “5 O’Clock shadow on Butt” I nearly fell off my couch.I don’t care what others say but you have created a special place in my heart and comedy is something that I always appreciate and admire and you will be one person who will nevva be forgotton Joan.RIP maybe we shall meet someday high up in sky making every one laugh!!! Love You Joan Rivers !!!!!!! Muahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh !!!!!!!! Its hard to believe that you are no more :((

  8. It has something else listed. ?. The Boomer List. I will dvr and hope they show Joan in its place.

  9. I saw this years ago and it made me really love and respect her so much. I already liked her but this made me really love her and truly defend her. I’m still doing that, when people are saying anything negative about her I make sure to let them know things about her they didn’t. Especially how much she loved her grandson and that she said she only goes on vacation twice a year, one week taking her grandson one place then another week taking him somewhere else. I will always do this for Joan because she deserved it.

    Man, it’s going to be weird not having her on talk shows or Fashion Police every Friday from now on. Very strange. We fans are and will always be there with Melissa and Coop.

  10. Joan your loved and missed by so many peolple! especially me! You made me laugh so many years! When you left a piece of my heart went with you!:( You were and always will be a special person that I amired so so much!<3

  11. I have Seen this in the past and was hopping it would air again soon! Thank you, a wonderful film.

  12. The one and only! I so enjoyed her career watching it before my eyes on TV. I remember when she talked about losing her husband, Edgar. She spoke of eating at a restaurant with her daughter, and her daughter looked at her and said, “If dad say these prices he would have just died”. I believe then she said she knew it would be ok. Love Joan!

  13. I am with you Nancy.. I am totally broken. Sad and crushed. At the same token, I watch her on tv and break into laughter.. So she heals the sadness all over again. .Thank you Joan ..! No one can EVER take your place !! BRAVA !!

  14. A true original, a true innovator, a true icon, a true American treasure, a true genius, and a true humanitarian…my heart still weeps.

  15. Joan Rivers was an absolute blast! She is irreparable, she was timelless, stunning, , l think she was beautiful! I wouldn’t MISS IT!
