Many Celebs In Attendance At Joan Rivers’ Funeral


Many celebrity friends and family members gathered at a New York synagogue to say their last farewells to comedian Joan Rivers, who died last week at the age of 81. There were many celebrities on hand for the funeral, among them Howard Stern, Donald Trump, Ozzy and Kelly Osbourne and Whoopi Goldberg.

Rivers once said that she did not want her funeral to include some rabbi rambling on, and because of that, the attending Rabbi Joshua Davidson only made a brief statement before letting Rivers’ friends and family pay tribute to her.

One of the most touching eulogies was given by radio shock jock and good friend Howard Stern, who said that Rivers fought against a lot of stereotypes – especially the stereotype that women could not be funny.

The ceremony ended with friend and actor Hugh Jackman singing a song in tribute to the late comedian. Jackman chose to sing the Peter Allen number “Quiet Please, There’s a Lady on Stage.”
