Late Night Videos: Memories of Joan Rivers on “The Tonight Show” through the years

It’s been fun looking at old Joan Rivers videos on the 88th anniversary of her birth. What a great reminder that her comedy lives on forever.

Of all that Joan accomplished, she really reached the height of her career on The Tonight Show where she got her first big break in 1963 and became permanent guest host in the first half of the 1980s.

After her 1986 appearance as a guest promoting her autobiography, Joan was banned from the show for nearly three decades because of a falling out with Johnny Carson.

His successor Jay Leno never invited her on but current host Jimmy Fallon had her make a cameo on her very first show then in the last year of her life, he had her on as a guest.

She deserved that and more!
