Got your attention, didn’t I? But I can’t take the credit...it’s actually from the mind and mouth of one of America’s funniest women, Joan Rivers. I’ve been a fan of Joan Rivers since her first nights of guest-hosting the Johnny Carson Show.
I remember years (and years) ago, I was working for an advertising agency as the one and only copy writer and where I garnered my first experiences a television commercial producer. One of the agency’s largest clients was a corporation that owned a massive nation-wide chain of mall jewelry stores; the store names varied by market. Joan Rivers was the jewelry chain spokesperson and I was psyched because I got to write her quotes and copy and...you know, the whole ‘only one person away from knowing (fill in the blank)’ type of thing. Note: The only downside for me was the project of writing the entire jewelry catalog. Next time you pick up a store catalog, pity the poor person who wrote it as it’s just about the most mind-numbing thing in the world to write, that is, next to a credit card application, but that’s another story.
Years later, I got to perform on stage at the world-famous Comedy Store on the Sunset Strip and all I could think of was that I was standing on the same stage as many very funny women had like Roseanne, Sandra Bernhard and of course, Joan Rivers!
And this Tuesday, December 1st, I’ll be sure to tune into Dr. Jane Greer’s show, DOCTOR ON CALL, as her guest will be one of my all-time favorites, Joan Rivers! By the way, “MEN ARE STUPID AND THEY LIKE BIG BOOBS” is her show title...need I say more?
Yes I must - YOU ROCK JOAN RIVERS!...and those are my boobs!
