Goodbye to Another Glorious Gal: Phyllis Diller

We were sorry to hear of the passing of Phyllis Diller yesterday (though she did live to be 95, which is a nice, long run). Diller was a groundbreaking performer who helped to open doors for so many funny women who followed her.

We thought we’d pay tribute to Ms. Diller by sharing her national television debut; it came in 1958 with an appearance as a contestant on Groucho Marx‘s You Bet Your Life. Enjoy.

Say the secret word

Image-You Bet Your Life collectionAfter a holiday sojourn in our hometown, we’re back and (we hope) better than ever.

And to help you get a strong start on the new year, we’re going to share a sweet deal with you (from which we benefit in no way, shape, or form — we’re sharing it with you out of the goodness of our hearts):

A three-disc YOU BET YOUR LIFE (starring Groucho Marx, don’t you know) boxed set can be had at the following URL for just $11.99 (list price is $39.99).

It’s a great deal on a delightful set of DVDs (which is now discontinued, so grab it while it’s hot).
