Joan Rivers is getting the last laugh, per usual.
When she was a fledgling comic, Johnny Carson told Tonight Show viewers she was “going to be a big star” after she performed her stand-up routine on Feb. 17, 1965. At Bill Cosby‘s insistence, Carson had agreed to take a chance on Rivers, who would later guest host the late-night show from 1983 to 1986.
