Legendary comedienne Phyllis Diller, who blazed a trail for a generation of female comics with her brash and self-deprecating stand-up routine, has died. She was 95 years old.
Diller had been suffering health problems as of late: She recently hurt her hip and wrist in a fall and has been living under hospice care at her Los Angeles home. She passed away there this morning, surrounded by family. Diller’s longtime manager, Milton Suchin, told The Associated Press, “She died peacefully in her sleep and with a smile on her face.”
