Phyllis Diller passed away at the age of 95, trailblazing a way for female comedians after her time. When Jerry Lewis and Adam Corolla say that female comedians are not funny, Phyllis Diller shows them just how truly stupid they are.
Phyllis mad herself the butt of jokes from her looks to the outrageous costumes she wore on stage and for interviews.
She did not start being a comedian until in her late 30's which was back in the 1950's. Bob Hope to a liking to her comedic style and featured her whenever he could.
You look at female comedians now like Ellen DeGeneres, Whoopi Goldberg and Amy Shumer, and the comedy is not focused on their looks. Ellen is pure comedy gold and she knows without Diller or Joan Rivers, she would not be where she is today.
Rivers is upset that not most know who Diller is. I do, but that is because of my Grandparents letting me know at an early age, and her voice was unmistakable in cartoons I watched as a kid when she would be a guest star in "Scooby Doo" and others.
She truly was the Queen of one-liners and her set-up and delivery was smooth and quite fast.
Phyllis Diller will not be forgotten, by her peers, by her fans, by anyone. I know this has been used before, but when it comes to her, it is completely true. Right now, she is making God laugh.
Thank you Phyllis for a childhood that wouldn't have been as funny without you.-DocFB
I am not sure what to think of this movie by the preview of "Tower Heist" above. It seems at first Ben Stiller is trying his hand at action movie starring Alan Alda. Then when Eddie Murphy enters it, it has to be a comedy...right? Although I am not sure where the laughs are to be yet.
The movie is directed by Bret Ratner so I know there will be some cool action scenes. I am just....wonderign about the comedy. Ben Stiller has had hit after hit movie and Eddie....has had hits with the Shrek movies recently.
I would like to see Eddie bounce back, I am not sure "Tower Heist" will be his bounce back film though. What do you think of the trailer?-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: Rush Hour Meets 48 Hours Without The Laughs?
Kunis says she has never had a no-strings-attatched relationship before as her "Friends With Benefits" character has. She said:
“Oy. I haven’t, but I can give you my stance on it: It’s like communism—good in theory, in execution it fails. Friends of mine have done it, and it never ends well. Why do people put themselves through that torture?”
Awww. She is right though. For real. Not speaking from personal experience. Ahem. Mila lightened up to show her funnier side, so to speak.
“It’s hard to be funny in general. I think I have a good sense of humor, but I’m not, like, a joke-teller. I get the jokes, which is sometimes half the battle. Believe me, I have no idea why anyone hires me.”
Ahh, Mila, that is the most important part. Laughing at my...er...I mean people's jokes. As for guys wanting to know, she is single. She said it would be hard to date her now as she is booked with movies til January.-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: Jenna Elfman Plays Justin Timberlake's Sister In "FWB"
Sarah Palin was on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" last night and tried her hand at comedy by doing stand-up. Oh Lawd. Comparing Alaska to Los Angeles and talked about the Winter Olympics.
Jay set her up for softball questions during their Q n A such as being caught writing cliff notes on her hand during a speech.
Check out the video of Sarah Palin on The Tonight Show and let us know what you think.-Dr.FB
P.S., for the 2nd night in a row, Leno dominated Letterman in the ratings. Team Coco, where you at?
