Born Phyllis Ada Driver, Phyllis Diller was in show business for five decades. She was known for her outrageous wit -- matched only by her hair and her laugh. Her loud-mouthed, rapid-fire (and notably clean) delivery picked on everything from her husband (Fang) to the agonies of being a poor, self-deprecating housewife. The bulk of her performing career was spent in dinner clubs around the world and on-stage (as a piano virtuoso) with over more than 100 orchestras. She appeared on countless television sitcoms and dramas over the years, including The Carol Burnett Show, The Love Boat, and 7th Heaven. Diller also appeared in scores of films, television specials, and Broadway productions. She co-starred in three of Bob Hope's movies, recorded five comedy albums, and published four books. She won a Lifetime Achievement Award in comedy from the American Comedy Awards in 1992 and a Lucy Award in 2000. She was an avid humanitarian.
