Panel and Performance with Judy Gold and Caroline Waxler. Part of the Series "Not Just Funny Girl: Jewish American Women in Comedy". In Partnership with the Center for Jewish History.
Joan Rivers pioneering work as a female comedian left an indelible impression on the field and on the collective memory of America. From her breakthrough on the Johnny Carson show in 1965, she challenged us to think about gender roles, all the while making us laugh. Come watch highlights of her work, and hear from Rivers niece, Caroline Waxler, and comedian Judy Gold, on how her work continues to inspire the field today.
