Bravo, Ms. Rivers: 'Joan Rivers: Before Melissa Pulls the Plug' (2006)
Yes, that was indeed the title of her 2006 special for the Bravo Network. This clip is just one example of how Rivers tore up the boards in her seventies and beyond. Within the first few minutes, she charges onstage, verbally dismantles the set and superfluous four-piece orchestra, talks about how cheap host network Bravo is, dishes on old people, ugly people and bitches about her most obvious heir (and competition), Kathy Griffin. The title also happily reflects how little fear she had while joking about death.
