Washington [US], July 31 (ANI): New comedy albums of the late icon Joan Rivers, containing previously unreleased material will be now be made available in 2021.

The star who died in 2014, hosted 'The Late Show with Joan Rivers', which made her one of the first women to host a late-night network television talk show.
"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," Variety quoted her daughter Melissa Rivers as saying.
"Joan is the icon of icons in every sense of the word. Not only was she a comedic pioneer, but she was also an entrepreneur, author, actress, director, and more. We're excited to honor her career, and her life's work for many years to come," said Brian Volk-Weiss, CEO of Comedy Dynamics, cited the publication.
Along with other appreciations, Rivers had won a Daytime Emmy for hosting 'The Joan Rivers Show'. (ANI)
