This week on the podcast Sovereign Syre tells Ela Darling about Phyllis Diller. During her career she became the first female stand up to become a household name, but Phyllis Diller started at the very bottom, a mother of five children married to charismatic loser that was at turns dismissive and abusive. In the 1950s. In her late thirties. Welcome to the first part in our series on one of the most resilient and fascinating women in entertainment.
