Legendary Comedian Phyllis Diller Dead at 95

Phyllis Diller, the legendary comedian who paved the way for many female comics who followed her, has passed away at the age of 95.

The comedian died in her Los Angeles home surrounded by loved ones. She had recently hurt her hip in a fall and her health had been on the decline ever since, according to TMZ.

Phyllis‘ career began back in the 1950s. She starred in many specials alongside Bob Hope and also had her own series, The Phyllis Diller Show.

Our condolences and prayers go out to Phyllis‘ family and friends during this difficult time.

    I’ve been browsing online greater than three hours these days, but I by no means found any fascinating article like yours. It is lovely price enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content material as you did, the web can be much more helpful than ever before.
