Joan Rivers is a force of nature in ‘A Piece of Work’

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: My weekend is pretty packed with LA Gay Pride events otherwise I’d be in a movie theater taking in Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work.

Can’t wait to see this new documentary which follows Joan Rivers, who turned 77 a few days ago, all around during her 75th year.

She’s a busy woman and a real force of nature so it should be very interesting and entertaining.

Brent Hartinger talked to Joan for AfterElton.com and writes that Miss River is “a jumble of contradictions: insecure, yet unflappable; heartless, yet compassionate; funny in her act, but completely serious about her profession. She leads a ridiculously lavish lifestyle, but still regularly hones her act in dingy, small New York nightclubs, delivering some of the funniest, frankest material of her career.”
