Joan Rivers - A Piece of Work trailer

Here she is, comedy pioneer Joan Rivers. She's in her 70s. She's a workaholic. She has a library-sized card catalog of jokes in a built-in at her house. What's not to love?

Kathy Griffin loves Joan Rivers.

Joan Rivers is completely inappropriate most of the time and has been for more than 40 years.

Joan shares the spotlight with her co-star.

The very first guest on The Joan Rivers Show, 1986.

Joan spins her magic in 1982.

Joan Rivers - A Piece of Work is currently screening at festivals and will be the closing-night film at the SF International Film Festival on May 6 at the Castro Theatre (of course!). She's scheduled to be at the closing night party at 1015 Folsom (of course!) after the film.

Joan Rivers has had such a tough life, and such a demanding career, it’s only right someone finally made a documentary about her. She’s been as groundbreaking as George Carlin or Richard Pryor, and it’s about time we let her know we noticed.
