It is hard to make people laugh when they are mad at you. Joan Rivers is a very funny woman…she is gifted with her timing and her observations on things that amuse folks…but, what Joan does do that just isn’t funny, is cuss. Over the years it has become a mainstay of her routines to insult people, curse, or she uses the “B” word to address people in place of their name. It isn’t funny; and, you would think that someone who was 75 years of age would realize that by now.
Joan was on a talk show during in Britain when she cursed about a guest host; Russell Crowell, the movie star. She allegedly said that she thought that her language could be beeped out; but to me that is just disrespectful of her audience. She did apologize; however, she was asked to leave during a break in the show.
It just seems to me that an entertainer of her skill could be a little more appropriate in her public appearances. I think comedians like to do shock comedy…but, to me it is a cheap way to get a laugh…as i said..with her experience and skill; Joan Rivers is capable of so much more than she gives; when , she resorts to those kinds of cheap laughs.
