‘Phyllis Diller’ Legendary Comedian Has Died! (Watch Video)

‘Legendary Comedian’ Phyllis Diller has died. The wild hair, queen of comedy passed away on Monday at her home in Los Angeles. She was ninety five years old.

She had been suffering some heart problems in past years and she reportedly declined in health after a fall. She had been surrounded by her family and she did die peacefully.

“She was a true pioneer,” Diller‘s longtime agent Fred Wostbrock tells Entertainment Weekly. “She was the first lady of stand-up comedy. She paved the way for everybody. And she conquered television, movies, Broadway, record albums, nightclubs, books, and radio. She did it all. A true pioneer.”

Diller (Phyllis Dirver) was born in Ohio begun her career in tiny clubs. Her jokes were mostly about her lousy housekeeping, and as she liked to say, “The only thing domestic about me is that I was born in this country.”

Following her retirement she went onto her other loves,  painting and piano. She is survived by three of her children.
