Cape Gazette - Lewes,DE,USA - Tears rolled down people’s faces, stomachs and sides hurt, people struggled to stay upright on their chairs, and they were having a great time.

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.

While Rivers has been in the entertainment business for more than 40 years, she worked, sweated, bounded from one end of the stage to the other
