Legendary comedienne Joan Rivers will perform at Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC) on Friday, Feb. 4. The show begins at 8 p.m. in Jackson Hall.
The tart-tongued star, who began her career as Johnny Carson’s guest host, has been an ubiquitous presence in the entertainment industry for over fifty years. Her numerous pursuits—advertising QVC jewelry, appearing on NBC’s The Celebrity Apprentice and attacking captive celebrities on the red carpet—offer fodder for her singular comedy routine. She riffs on her travails in the hard-crusted world of Hollywood with a cynical wit and a keen sense of her special place in the media mayhem. (www.tpac.org, $25-70)
