  •  I saw Phyllis Diller a dozen or so years ago (8+ / 0-)

    Tragically, the show was a couple of days after a limo driver was killed with Phyllis in the car. The driver had picked her up and was driving late at night to a small town venue. Lost, ended up in the ditch, the driver got out of the car and tried to get it out of the ditch alone, but the car ended up running her over.

    Phyllis went on with her set of shows, but you could tell she was deeply affected by the tragedy. She was clearly off her game, understandably so, and did a fairly short set.

    The driver was a huge fan of hers, and won a contest to be able to pick her up and drive her to the various gigs in the region.

    What a sad tale it was.
