Joan Rivers, who will be remembered for her acerbic wit and outrageous one-liners, has died aged 81.
The pioneering comedian never regained consciousness after falling into a coma, following a cardiac arrest whilst undergoing throat surgery.
A trailblazer for female comedians, the comic got her big break when she first starred on The Tonight Show, then hosted by Johnny Carson, in 1965.
However, after Joan decided to host her own rival show, Carson banned her from ever appearing on The Tonight Show. In fact, it was only this year, with Jimmy Fallon taking over the reigns, that she was allowed back on.
In recent weeks she encountered controversy after ranting to a TMZ reporter about the Palestinian Israeli conflict.
The comedian was caught on camera saying: "When you declare war, you declare war. They started it, we now don't care whose dead. You're dead, you deserve to be dead."
She moved to clarify her statement a week later, in which she said that she had meant to refer to Hamas, instead of Palestinians, when she was discussing the war.
Of course, that's not all she was famous for. Her career spanned five decades and has seen her go from stand-up, to commenting on red carpet fashion and also starring in her own reality TV series with her daughter Melissa Rivers.
Joan was married twice. Her first marriage to James Sanger, was annulled after six months. Her second marriage was to producer Edgar Rosenberg, to whom she was married from 1965 until 1987, when he sadly committed suicide.
Joan is survived by her daughter, Melissa and her beloved grandson, Edgar Cooper.
It was ultimately her wicked sense of humour that we'll remember her for, so in tribute to Joan we've compiled some of her most outrageous one-liners ever.
