hilarious is too small a word
15 January 2004 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

This is Phyllis Diller at her absolute peak of agility and wit - with sight gags you could well die for.

Phyllis' fashions alone almost steal the show - they're completely over the top, just like her character.

Fifteen years or so later Phyllis was frail enough to need to be gently assisted to the stage at Brisbane's Crest Hotel - where she convinced any doubters in the audience that she is indeed one of the all-time greatest stand-up comedy artists. 'Traveling Saleslady immortalises her devastatingly unique style.
