Personal Quote:

[on his lifelong friendship with comedienne Joan Rivers]: I'd gotten to be friends with Joan; who I adored. I actually got to see Joan, over for Johnny Carson; when I was a kid in Las Vegas. My parents took me, I was like 4 years old; it was like 'Let's go to Vegas,' like I was. We were there and met her there and I got to be friends with her, again, a couple of years ago. See more »

Trivia:

Hardwick met a struggling comedienne, Joan Rivers, where he and his family went to see her do an opening act for Rivers's own mentor Johnny Carson, in Las Vegas, Nevada, when Hardwick was just a little boy. They were friends for 39 years, until her death in 2014. See more »
