Phyllis Diller
Phyllis Diller

AIR DATE: August 24, 2012

Comedian Phillys Diller passed away early this week - she carved a path allowing other female performers to compete with headlining acts on the Las Vegas Strip.  Her self-depricating humor inspired others like Joan Rivers, Rosanne Barr and Rita Rudner.  We speak with a filmmaker who documented Diller's last performance, here in Las Vegas.
