Joan Rivers is sooooo not funny.
13 August 2002 | by (Northbrook, IL, USA) – See all my reviews

You know what the whole point of this TV special was? To roast the fictional Heidi Abromowitz. Joan Rivers and her friends spent 50 minutes thinking up different ways of calling Heidi a tramp. ..... .....

I'm sorry. Were you looking for more? Really...what I stated above was the whole TV special. Talk about dreadfully dull. 1/10
