The Legacy of Joan Rivers
Part of a series co-sponsored by the Forward, the AJHS and JWA.

Joan Rivers' pioneering work as a female comedian left an indelible impression on the field and on the collective memory of America. From her breakthrough on the Johnny Carson show in 1965, she challenged us to think about gender roles, all the while making us laugh. Hear from Rivers' niece, Caroline Waxler, and comedian Judy Gold, on how her work continues to inspire the field today.
