You'd recognize her pulled, pinched, and smoothed face anywhere. Her loud and raspy voice with its thick New York accent making jokes about eyesores of outfits, unfortunate events, celebrity stupidity and, of course, herself. Sometimes they laugh. Sometimes they don't. So it goes in the life of Joan Rivers.
Rest assured that when Rivers brings her stand-up act to Chandler Center for the Arts nothing will be off the table. The 78-year-old comic still riffs on cultural taboos like there's no tomorrow.
So it's probably best to leave the kiddies and those easily offended at home during her performance on Friday.
