Joan Rivers is Gone, and Her Borgata Show Probably Cancelled, But Her Dirty Jokes Will Live on

We lost a great, if controversial and scathing, lady today. Joan Rivers died from complications from a vocal chord surgery last week that caused her to lose consciousness. Even though her prognosis was dismal at best, we still sort of thought she'd pull through and return just in time for Awards Season. But it wasn't meant to be.

Before she went under, Rivers was in the middle of a stand-up comedy tour (yes, at the age of 81) and was set to perform at The Music Box at The Borgata Hotel & Casino on November 22. Obviously, that show is going to be cancelled, although Borgata hasn't made any announcements yet. They could always stream Joan in hologram form and then play clips of her greatest acts. Which would seem fitting for Joan, who wouldn't miss a show (and a paycheck) for anything.

In the meantime, we guess Frank Marino's impersonation act at The Quad Resort & Casino in Las Vegas will have to do instead. Eh.
