Phyllis Diller (American Comedian) Created a stage presence of a wild haired, eccentrically dressed housewife who insults herself about her looks and age, her awful cooking and her husband she refers to as fang.
"I wanted to become me, totally me. The more me, the better. I instinctively knew this and I was right. ... I had a spirit, baby, I was strong, and it was almost as if there was a field of light around me. When your whole body is electricity, you can use it, and I was able to capitalize on material that no one else had in their artillery." -- Phyllis Diller
