Matilda’s Lab Hall of Fame – Joan Rivers

ML WOF Joan Rivers.jpg

I, like many others, greatly this miss this true queen of comedy. She was wickedly witty, a master of shock humour and self deprecating to a level that would make most british comedians blush. As exceptional as she was as a comedienne, what she did share with many of her contemporaries was a high level of education. Her BA degree from Barnard college included anthropology (the study of humans). You could even argue that observational comedy and anthropology are one and the same thing.

She joins the other high profile names here in the Matilda’s Lab Hall of Fame.
