Joan Rivers—whose new flick, Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work, opens Friday—has seen just about everything during her five decades in showbiz.
Interviewed on Milling About, the comic icon recounts her all-time worst onstage incidents.
“One time a heckler started heckling and projectile-vomited all over the stage,” Joan, who turned 77 year young yesterday, tells host Robin Milling.
“I made the audience vote— ‘Should we get this cleaned up or should we continue the show?’
“They voted to continue and I said, ‘No, no, we’re gonna clean this up first!’
“They didn’t smell it! It was so horrible.
“The other horrible time was once a guy died while I was on stage in Vegas. Died, died!
“They handle things so fast in Las Vegas. There was a body bag. He was wrapped and taken out of that showroom before I got to the next joke.
“They don’t mess around. We knew something was up because they stopped for a second and you see all the commotion and whoosh, out and you continue on.”
