Phyllis Diller, Sassy Comedienne, R. I. P.

Phyllis Diller, the sassy comedienne best remembered for her sassy, screeching, rapid-fire, stand-up delivery who paved the way for two generations of female comics, passed away on Monday at her Brentwood, California home at age 95.

Miss Diller starred in a pair of failed TV shows during the 1960s (The Pruitts of Southampton and The Beautiful Phyllis Diller Show).

Inspired by Bob Hope, Phyllis actually appeared in three 1960s films with Bob, none very successful.
