Breathtakingly, achingly funny
on 22 September 2010
This is no 'chicken soup for the soul', this is the kind of humour that the medical profession says we need for a healthy, balanced life. Laughs, the good old-fashioned type that start with a chuckle and then develop into a deep belly laugh, are generated at a dizzily paced rate. Thank goodness for the rewind button, it is needed to catch up on those bits we couldn't hear because we were bent double with laughter.
An Audience with Joan Rivers is slick, professional, self-deprecating, provocative humour. The expletives are natural, every-day stuff so should come as no surprise to any modern audience. But be warned: you will ache from laughing so much, and at times it will be difficult to catch your breath!
