  Name: Joan Sandra Molinsky                                                           
  Born: 8 June 1933 Brooklyn, New York, U.S.                                           
  Joan Rivers (born Joan Sandra Molinsky on June 8, 1933) is an American               
  comedienne, actress, talk show host, businesswoman, and celebrity. She is known     
  for her brash manner and loud, raspy voice with a heavy metropolitan New York       
  accent. Rivers is the National Chairwoman of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and     
  is a board member of God's Love We Deliver. Like the ground-breaking Phyllis         
  Diller, Rivers' act relied heavily on poking fun at herself. A typical Rivers       
  joke about her unattractiveness: "I used to stand by the side of the road with a     
  sign: 'Last girl before freeway.'"
