I fucking loved Phyllis Diller, one of the funniest women ever, even funnier than a lot of younger women today, IMO...she was truly one of the greats. She was up there with Woody Allen, Milton Berle, Jack Carter, Pat Cooper, Don Rickles, George Jessel, Lou Jacoby, and so many other golden age comics from decades past...even George Carlin (before he released his AM/FM album). She deserves to be up in the top comedians of all time...she belongs up there.
...and don't even wonder about my age on this. So what if she was around since the 50s? I'm 27 years old and I know exactly who Phyllis Diller is, so younger people who have no idea have no excuse.
I really am a big fan of comedy, and she was one of the best. RIP
