Phyllis Diller, Outlandish Comedian

I found this at http://upload.wikimedia.org
Phyllis Diller,
zany housewife,
stand-up comic,
with the electric hairdo,
with the outlandish wardrobe,
with her trademark laugh,
Phyllis Diller has died.
She was 95.

Phyllis Diller
with her eccentric stage persona,
Phillis Diller,
“The Elizabeth Taylor  of the Twilight Zone.”

Phyllis Diller was a “late bloomer” starting her career as a comedian at the age of 37.  Her act lampooned her domestic life and her fictional husband, Fang.
