Brooklyn-born comedy pioneer Joan Rivers died today after a lifetime of kicking down doors and then making fun of how they looked while she walked over them. Talk show writer and host, director, comedian, actress and grand dame of making you realize those pants look awful on you, Rivers casts a shadow as long as anyone who’s performed comedy. Everyone’s got their preferred way to remember her right now, but we’ll take the time that she hosted the Beastie Boys on The Late Show when they were just teenagers (!), and while playing gracious host to the maybe drunk trio, still managed to let them know that License to Ill was “a stupid name for an album.” You’re in Heaven now Joan, snapping on MCA (who’s also there).
