all things . . . VOICE !

Farewell to a Voice

Earlier posts to my blog pay tribute to distinctive voices we just “know” as we hear them; one of a kind.  We say farewell this week to once such voice, that of comedienne Phyllis Diller, who died in her sleep at 95.

She is a real show biz pioneer, taking to the stand up comedy stage in an era when men dominated.  Diller’s resume before show business includes house wife, a role from which she drew her rich repertoire.  I had the privilege to see her live show and I will always remember the outrageous wardrobe and even more over the top hair do that was her signature.

She was asked once the secret to longevity of her contemporaries, Bob Hope and others.  She said it was because they laughed.  Bravo, Phyllis Diller.  You and that one of a kind laugh that is only you.
