In the wake of Joan Rivers‘ death, everyone is paying their respects to the legendary comedian.
Naturally, Rivers touched a lot of people during her lifetime, but possibly none more so than those in the comedy community.
As such, many late-night talk show hosts spoke about Rivers’ passing on their respective shows last night.
David Letterman said,
Here’s a woman, a real pioneer for other women looking for careers in stand-up comedy. And talk about guts — she would come out here and sit in this chair and say some things that were unbelievable, just where you would have to swallow pretty hard… but it was hilarious… the force of her comedy was overpowering.
Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel and Conan weighed in as well. The world suffered a great loss yesterday. At least we can always revisit her comedy and smile.
