Joan Rivers -elite dailyJoan Rivers -elite daily

Joan Rivers passed away earlier this afternoon, and the world is a little less funny.

It’s a major blow that extends past the world of comedy.

In order to honor her memory, we’ve uncovered this clip from a little-known interview done with Joan by the Comedy Hall of Fame.

The interview was conducted about four years ago and is just now becoming public. In the clip, Rivers speaks about how she got her big break on her way to becoming a comedy superstar.

She talks about the assist she got from Bill Cosby, and how she hit it off with Johnny Carson when she first appeared on his show. It lends great insight into this one-of-a-kind talent.

She will sorely missed. At least we have her comedy to guide us through.
