Phyllis Ada Driver (July 17, 1917 — August 20, 2012), better known as Phyllis Diller, was an American stand-up comedienne, actress, voice artist, and comedienne who was considered one of the pioneers of female stand-up comedy. The stage character she created was a wild-haired, oddly-dressed housewife who was ugly, but didn't realize it, and who made jokes about a husband named "Fang" while smoking from a long cigarette holder. She was also known for her distinctive, cackling laugh, one of the best-recognized in comedy. Phyllis Diller was generally thought to have opened the stand-up field to women, such as Totie Fields, Joan Rivers, Lily Tomlin, Sandra Bernhard, and Roseanne Barr. She was known for voicing Thelma Griffin on Family Guy.
