  • Joan Alexandra Molinsky, widely known by her stage name Joan Rivers, was an American actress, comedian, writer, producer, and television host widely noted for her often controversial comedic persona — where she was alternately self-deprecating or sharply acerbic, especially toward celebrities and politicians. Also widely known for her red carpet interviews, Rivers co-hosted the E! celebrity fashion show Fashion Police and starred in reality series Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best? with daughter Melissa Rivers. Rivers marketed a line of jewelry and apparel on the QVC shopping channel, and was the subject of the documentary Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work. Rivers came to prominence in 1965 as a guest on The Tonight Show. Hosted by her mentor, Johnny Carson, the show established Rivers' comedic style. In 1986, with her own rival program, The Late Show with Joan Rivers, Rivers became the first woman to host a late night network television talk show. She subsequently hosted The Joan Rivers Show, winning a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Talk Show Host. [undefined]
