I found out that my comedic idol, Phyllis Diller, passed away this morning at the age of 95. I just adored her, especially her hilarious laugh. She was one of the first woman who proved that women can be just as funny as men. She helped pave the way for many of my favorite comediennes today like Roseanne Barr and Chelsea Handler.
Her son said that this morning she passed away in her sleep with a smile on her face; what a beautiful way to go.
May she rest in peace and keep the angels laughing their wings off.
