This week on the pod, Sovereign Syre tells Ela Darling about Phyllis Diller's whirlwind rise to fame, making her the first female stand up comedian to become a household name. While her star was on the rise however, her turbulent homelife was about to implode. Phyllis found herself in new territory, navigating the Hollywood system, being cast over and over again as the "ugly woman," an image she had herself cultivated, but which started to eat away at her self esteem.
