“DIVE INTO DILLER” – By Des Kelly

She was born Phyllis Diver, in 1917 (July 17th)& died, aged 95, on the 20th August, 2012, becoming better known to her public as Phyllis Diller, a Comedienne of no mean repute, she entertained thousands of people with a natural ability that only a few Comedians possessed. “Stand-up” Comedy is one of the most difficult forms if this type of entertainment, as any “Comic” will tell you, but I watched Phyllis (years ago), walk onto a stage and have her audience in the palm of her hand, within minutes. 
Purposely groomed, dishevelled hair, her “skits” somewhat raucous at times, she still managed to have some of her fans, at least, rolling in the aisles, so to speak. 
     We do miss the Diller comedy, but I am proud to feature Phyllis on this special eLanka “show” with some of her comic “prose” throughout her career. Please enjoy.
