“Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work” hits theaters today; She talks to AfterElton about that and more!
My weekend is pretty packed with LA Gay Pride events otherwise I’d be in a movie theater taking in Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work.
Can’t wait to see this new documentary which follows Joan Rivers, who turned 77 a few days ago, all around during her 75th year.
She’s a busy woman and a real force of nature so it should be very interesting and entertaining.
Brent Hartinger talked to Joan for AfterElton.com and writes that Miss River is “a jumble of contradictions: insecure, yet unflappable; heartless, yet compassionate; funny in her act, but completely serious about her profession. She leads a ridiculously lavish lifestyle, but still regularly hones her act in dingy, small New York nightclubs, delivering some of the funniest, frankest material of her career.”
Brent asks Joan why it is that she has connected with gay men from the very early days of her career in Greenwich Village: “I just think that gay men and I love the same things, and how lucky for me,” she says. “And all my friends, I look around my table … I’m having 12 people to dinner and there’ll probably be two straight couples, and me, and seven gay men.”
