“The way she narrated was more like watching a stage performance…”
Audiobook producer, Diane McKiernan, fondly remembers Joan Rivers: “Working with Joan has without a doubt been one of the highlights of my career. She showed up ready to work and never tired. It seemed impossible for her to be as quick and witty as she seemed on TV but she truly was – making jokes with everyone she came across on the short walk from the car up to the studio. My favorite part of working with Joan was seeing how much fun she had recording the audiobook. The way she narrated was more like watching a stage performance than watching someone read from a page. She would laugh at her own jokes and at times, ad lib or tweak a line. It was wonderful to see her work and it’s an experience I’ll never forget.”
