Comedienne Phyllis Diller Dead at 95Submit Comment
Phyllis Diller, who was considered the first American woman to become known on a national level for stand-up comedy, died Monday in Los Angeles. She was 95.

Diller got her first national TV exposure in 1950 as a contestant on Groucho Marx's quiz show "You Bet Your Life." She was particularly popular in the '60s and '70s, appearing on the top comedy, quiz and variety shows of the day, including "What's My Line?," "The Andy Williams Show," "Get Smart" and "The Carol Burnett Show."

Her first film role was in William Inge's "Splendor in the Grass" (1961), starring Warren Beatty and Natalie Wood. More recently, Diller appeared on such TV shows as "Boston Legal," "The Drew Carey Show," "7th Heaven" and soap opera "The Bold and the Beautiful." She also voiced characters on "Family Guy," "King of the Hill," "Robot Chicken," "The Wild Thornberrys," "Hey Arnold!," "The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius" and Pixar's "A Bug's Life."

The balls on Diller!!

She had national recognition in the 60s as the stand up in its infancy form along with Cosby, Carlin, Bruce, & Pryor hitting the US with all of this AND BEING A WOMAN?!!

And after all that, still kept working into her old age!! Love her or hater, but the respect for her is there...in spades!!

RIP, ma'am.
