The Real Joan Rivers

Hosted by

Legendary comedian Joan Rivers died yesterday at the age of 81. She was the child of Russian immigrants and a pioneer for women in show business. She was also divisive, one of those people others tend to love or hate. But who was she really? A 2010 documentary called Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work tried to answer that question. We hear from one of the filmmakers.
