At the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center, Saturday, April 4, comedienne Joan Rivers was a master, showing how just one person with a microphone can entertain hundreds. This was not a person resting on past success, an entertainer going through the motions; no, this was a performer at the peak of her ability.
