Entertainer Phyllis Diller Dead at 95

Comedienne Phyllis Diller, whose entertainment career spanned more than six decades, died Monday at her Los Angeles home. She was 95.

The pioneering funny woman got her start in television in the 1950s, appearing on variety shows – and hosting a few of her own – alongside legendary comics like Bob Hope and Red Skeleton.

She later became a regular on the game-show circuit, bringing her outrageous personality to standbys like Hollywood Squares, Match Game and Super Password. In between, she guest-starred on various dramas and comedies, including 7th Heaven, The Bold and the Beautiful, Blossom, and The Love Boat. Her most recent TV gig was voicing Peter’s mom on Family Guy.
