The Joan Rivers Estate has announced a deal with Comedy Dynamics to sort through hundreds of hours of previously unreleased material from the late great comedian, with plans to release a box set, digital albums and more in 2021.
As Melissa Rivers told Variety: “While hundreds of hours of my mother on tape sounds great to her fans, to my therapist it sounds like another beach house. Thankfully, mom was meticulous about saving everything, and some of her best routines, collected over literally decades, are going to soon be available. For that we really can be grateful.”
And from Brian Volk-Weiss, CEO of Comedy Dynamics: “Joan is the icon of icons in every sense of the word. Not only was she a comedic pioneer, she was an entrepreneur, author, actress, director and more. We’re excited to honor her career, and her life’s work for many years to come.”
Joan Rivers died in 2014 at the age of 81.
