‘A real pioneer’

4 Sep, 2014

Letterman reacts to the passing of Rivers:

Here’s a woman, a real pioneer for other women looking for careers in stand-up comedy. And talk about guts—she would come out here and sit in this chair and say some things that were unbelievable, just where you would have to swallow pretty hard… but it was hilarious… the force of her comedy was overpowering.
