It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to a woman that meant a lot to not only the funny women in the industry, but all of us that know what it means to laugh out loud. She did it first, and some would say the best, and for that, we are eternally grateful. If Joan taught us anything, it was how to be authentic, beautifully flawed and never apologetic for who and what we are.
Yes, the world is a little less funny without Joan. Our thoughts are with her family at this time.
