Why would I write about Phyllis Diller?
Phyllis was on television and in movies when I was a kid.
Phyllis Diller, a famous comedian, actress and entertainer, was born and raised in my home state of Ohio!
When she began her career Phyllis was a housewife and mother of 5! And around 36 years old!
It became apparent that her husband was unable to work.
It was unknown at that time but her husband had
"none of his jobs worked!" He was unable to keep a job!
Phyllis had a very rough road both in her personal life,
and in her professional life!
A woman working in the field of stand up comedy in the 1950's
was unheard of - and in night clubs!
She was the actually the first women to do this!
In 1957 she made it into t.v. on the Jack Parr show.
Phyllis had to have a lot of courage to do what she did!
In order to work she had to send her children to live with relatives.
It was five years before she would be able to take back her children.
She became a popular and successful comedian, and entertainer
and actress who worked alongside the greats of television and films!
Bob Hope and Dean Martin were two of them! She worked in to her 80s! Her career spanned 4 decades.
In 1971 at age 54 Phyllis had facial surgery.
In those days they called it
plastic surgery. She spoke about this and joked about it in her act!
Sharing this experience candidly brought some light to the subject.
She helped to lift some of the taboo associated with 'plastic surgery'.
This helped others who felt the surgery would help improve
the quality of their lives.
Phyllis was not born physically attractive and an accident in her
childhood had caused injury to her face as well.
The facial surgery changed her life!
The surgery opened her career and brought about
opportunity that would not have happened.
She was quite attractive!
See Phyllis' Biography
below or on YouTube!
She was quite a lady! An inspiration for anyone!
her man, her soul mate when she was 68 years old.
In her retirement she enjoyed painting and
and her grandchildren!
She paved the road for the women of
stand up (actors and entertainers) - who came after her.
Her career spanned 40 years!
She was known as the First Lady of Laughter!
Thank you Phyllis! I have enjoyed you!
