Joan Rivers is a force of nature - one of the hardest working celebrities in the world - comedienne, bestselling author, Tony-nominated actress, playwright, screenwriter, motion picture director, columnist, lecturer, syndicated radio host, Emmy Award-winning television talk-show host, jewellery designer, red-carpet fashion laureate, businesswoman and, most importantly to her, mother and grandmother. The daughter of immigrant Russian parents, Joan created her own brand of irreverent, unconventional comedy to forge her remarkable rise to stardom in the entertainment world. Enduring humiliation and privation for nearly a decade playing tawdry clubs, Borscht Belt hotels, and Greenwich Village cabarets, Joan's career skyrocketed in 1965 when she appeared on "The Tonight Show" with Johnny Carson. Using her unique gifts of humour, compassion and tenacity has enabled Joan to triumph over personal tragedy and attain extraordinary professional success. Joan Rivers plays Vicar St. on Monday September 15th. Tickets are €65 from ticketmaster and usual outlets from 9am on Monday July 9th.
