Joan Rivers was in Sydney in 2009 to launch the (then) Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras at a small party at the Hilton Hotel, as seen in our snap here with drag queen Mitzi McIntosh. A tiny lady, she took time to talk to every guest and was sweet as can be. And she gave an impromptu performance which mainly centered on superstar Tom Cruise. If only we could repeat the jokes- wicked, hilarious and totally unprintable ! That was Joan. Farewell dear lady.
