The funny and elegant and pretty Phyllis Diller stops by!
22 March 2016 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This "Muppet Show" episode from season one number 18 from 1976 featured the funny and wild and crazy pretty old beauty the legendary stand up comedian Phyllis Diller. And true the episode is funny with it's skits and even though the jokes are bad from Fozzie the Bear, Phyllis tells him if it doesn't work out as a comedian he may continue to lie to himself and be a politician as she implies that all politicians lie in their jobs! And even Mrs. Diller gives beauty advice to one of the Muppets who wants a face lift! Phyllis Diller also tells how unlucky she is, but makes the most of it with good humor and jokes telling that their is always a chance for a better life. Phyllis shows that she is more than just an old beauty by showing her talent of playing a musical instrument to close the show! Overall this was one feel good funny wild crazy time with the Muppets and the funny elegant beauty comedian known as Phyllis Diller.
