Comedian Jeremy Owens believes that Phyllis Diller proves that you can teach an old dog new tricks. You can start a stand-up career when you’re almost 40; you get to have your second act. If you’re lucky and live to be 95 you might even get a third, fourth or fifth.
Why did Brown, who many claim as a feminist icon, promote content for women that was so "slutty" or trivial? Why'd a comic genius like Diller dress up in fright wigs and party dresses, and traffic in female stereotypes?
