Joan Rivers Documentary on PBS

By Charlotte Robinson, September 20, 2014
Since the passing of fierce gay ally Joan Rivers our LGBT community has really lost a hero. Frank Marino star of “Divas Las Vegas” built his entire career impersonating Rivers making him the longest running headliner in Las Vegas. Marino stated, “Whether she knew it or not, she was not only a good friend but also like a second mother to me... This is a lady that not only inspired my career with her amazing talent but was also the one to introduce me to the producers of my first show which kicked off my 30 year career of impersonating her. I can’t imagine what my world is going to be like without having Joan in it every day. If in any small way I can keep her legacy alive in Las Vegas for years to come, it’ll truly be my honor.” This week the E Television Network ran a day long tribute to Rivers with a “Fashion Police” marathon that made you laugh so hard as she roasted celebrities as only Rivers could, you truly felt she was still alive. On Tuesday September 23rd at 10:30P PBS American Masters will present an In Memoriam tribute broadcast of Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work (2010) directed by Ricki Stern & Annie Sundberg. If you haven’t seen this brilliant moving film, this is your chance to really see what made Joan Rivers the legend she will always be. After the broadcast, the film will be available on the American Masters website for a limited time.
