Dimmed Wit: Broadway Does Right By Joan Rivers Comments (0)

Joan-Rivers

Caught some footage of Broadway's lights going out at 6:45PM tonight for a minute in honor of the life of Joan Rivers. Quite a few people were gathered; many cheered.

After the jump, check out the video.

The New York Daily News is reporting that Rivers may have died as the result of an imprudent action taken not by those at Yorkville Endoscopy, but by her own physician; a source says her one of her own doctors was with her at the time of the procedure that she signed off on and when he saw something worth taking a closer look at, he asked if he could do a biopsy on the spot. The clinic's staff agreed, and a very dangerous biopsy—something Rivers had no idea would be happening—was undertaken, causing her throat to close.

If that's really what happened, she probably never really had a chance...

By all accounts, the memorial for Joan Rivers today was hilarious, sad and classy. Both Audra McDonald and Hugh Jackman performed, with a eulogy by Howard Stern and remembrances by Margie Stern, Cindy Adams and, of course, Joan's daughter Melissa.

Rivers

Great clip from 1986 from Joan Rivers's failed talk show: Joan interviews Sylvester (September 6, 1947—December 17, 1988)—following a rare national TV performance—and the diva brings up the fact that herself, Rivers and fellow guest Charles Nelson Reilly (January 13, 1931—May 25, 2007) did a benefit for AIDS in 1983, way before other celebs made it a cause celebre.

Sad that all three are now gone...

Well, this has felt inevitable ever since word broke that Joan Rivers had gone without oxygen for an extended period of time after she stopped breathing during a routine throat procedure at Yorkville Endoscopy in New York City:

The iconic entertainer has died at 81 in a private room after leaving intensive care and being removed from life support.
