Joan Rivers on Audience Flops

  • Aired: 01/08/2009
  • 01:25
  • Rating: NR
“It was all about, ‘we don’t talk about these things,’” explains comedian Joan Rivers. In this interview outtake, Joan recounts a series of flops and failures, and the tepid audience response to her material. Her frank attitude on then-taboo subjects such as pregnancy, marital affairs, and sex was met with gasps, but later proved to be fundamental to her groundbreaking career in the industry.
