I went to her performance at the Venetian in Las Vegas; I have seen her perform at the same stage 2 years ago. Some of her materials are the same but most are new.
Joan Rivers has made a career out of making fun of celebrities. Her comic style relies heavily on poking fun at celebrities including herself. She jokes about all classes of people, ethnic groups, and old people (including her). Nobody is off limits to her humor.
She made fun of the following:
a) Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes and Scientology
b) Kristy Alley with her weight and Jenny Craig commercial
c) Cher and her never ending farewell concerts
d) The late Michael Jackson and his numerous cases
e) Chaz Bono, she/he doesn’t look good as a woman and as a man
f) Woody Allen and Soon Yi
g) Catholic priests and their sex offender cases
h) Mexicans and their piñatas
i) Jews and the holocaust
j) Sex and old people
k) Gays and lesbians
She is absolutely hysterical and she has proven herself that she is a fantastic entertainer. She is fresh and energetic considering her age. Her stage performance is more offensive than she is on TV but she is funny nonetheless. She is a natural comic.
You have to understand going in to her show that she is very hardcore; she offends in a loving way but she entertains at the same time. If you have very low tolerance for politically incorrect materials , if you don’t like the F-word, the C-word don’t go.
