RIP Phyllis Diller, 1917-2012
Comedy legend Phyllis Diller has died at age 95.
Phyllis began her career all the way back in 1952 — and rose to fame with her TV specials alongside Bob Hope in the 1960s.
Later that decade, Phyllis starred in her own show called “The Phyllis Diller Show” … as well as a variety show called “The Beautiful Phyllis Diller Show.” She was also a regular on “Laugh In.”
She also posed for Playboy — but the pics were never published.
Diller remained spunky to the very end, famously appearing in the 2005 movie “The Aristocrats,” telling an x-rated joke … better than comics half her age.
Joan Rivers recently appeared on “Watch What Happens Live” and said, Diller “broke the way for every woman comedian.”
