Oct. 8, 2010

Joan Rivers is a ground-breaking comedian who has been a ubiquitous presence on television for decades. Her trademark is biting, take-no-prisoners humor, whether she is hosting a talk show, selling jewelry on QVC or providing fashion commentary. This documentary takes a yearlong, behind-the-scenes look at what drove her to become an entertainer and, more importantly, why the 75-year-old keeps looking for new ways to remain in the public eye.

Directed by Ricki Stern and Anne Sundberg, the 2010 film is shown in English. It has a run time of 84 minutes, and is rated R for strong language and sexual humor.
