Joan Rivers 

When: Sat., June 29, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $27.50–$99.50
Long before the comedy stand-up of Kathy Griffin or Margaret Cho — and even longer before the comedians actually could stand up — Brooklyn-born comic Joan Rivers was blazing her own trail as one of the first female wiseguys to write her own material and work alongside the big boys. She gained fame as a repeat guest, and sometimes-host, on "The Tonight Show" starring Johnny Carson, and later landed a few TV shows of her own. Her outrageous, no-holding-back style means you either love her or hate her, but you have to admire her tenacity, especially if you've seen her in the documentary A Piece of Work.
— Vené Franco
