Sadly, comedienne Phyllis Diller, who paved the way for funny ladies everywhere, has passed away at 95. Born Phyllis Driver, she was known for her cackling laugh, self-deprecating jokes about her figure and housewife skills, and eccentric attire. She also consistently joked about her husband, "Fang," in her stand-up acts, who wasn't real or even based on any of her real-life husbands. Phyllis began her comedy career in small clubs in the '50s until she was discovered by Bob Hope in the '60s. She went on to appear on TV, star in movies, perform on Broadway, write an autobiography, and more. In honor of the late, great Phyllis Diller, we look back at some of our favorite funny TV and stand-up moments from the queen of comedy.
