By on 8.20.12 | 9:37PM

Comedienne Phyllis Diller has passed away after a myriad of health problems. She was 95.

Diller was a fixture on television on The Ed Sullivan Show, The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, Rowan & Martin's Laugh In and a variety of Bob Hope specials. She also accompanied Hope on various USO Tours.

In addition to her comedic skills, Diller was an accomplished pianist and harpsichord player. Here she is in a duet with Liberace.

I leave you with Diller roasting Ronald Reagan while he was still Governor of California. Diller was as perceptive as she was funny. She predicted The Gipper would be elected President.
