Phyllis Diller Passes Away at 95
Phyllis Diller, famous and ground breaking female comedian, has died today.  She was 95.  

"It is a great loss today," said Fred Wostbrock, her agent.  He told NBC, "She was a true pioneer and the first lady of standup. She paved the way for Chelsea Handler, Roseanne Barr, Joan Rivers and Ellen DeGeneres. She was the best. The first female standup to play Vegas. She was on Broadway, she made movies, she did it all."

It is said that Diller had a recent fall, and that her health has been declining since.  She was being taken care of by Hospice in her home in Los Angeles.
