Amazingly Entertaining!
6 April 2016 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Might be giving this more stars than typical but I was absolutely shocked at how funny Ms. Rivers is at the early stage of her career. When her first guest, the King of Comedy Johnny Carson, is completely overshadowed with her quick wit, solid stage presence, and natural stature, I was very impressed. I enjoyed seeing her diplomatic maneuvers with tricky guest and audience interactions as well as keeping up a fast pace to maintain interest.

Jerry Lewis comes off very preachy and confrontational with a noted medical authority, but Joan keeps her cool demeanor and placates the high maintenance guests with aplomb. I found the format of guest expert and celebrity to be challenging but she carried it off easily. I was disappointed this show was cancelled after one season.

High recommend for quality TV programming, Ms. Rivers early performances, and top notch entertainment overall. RIP
