Joan Rivers says she is getting funnier with age.
The outspoken comic has revealed that her act has improved as she has got older, and she is now more well-received than ever before.
She said: "People come up to me and say, 'You still got it.' Excuse me?! 'Better than ever,' I say. Age has freed me to say whatever I want."
Joan, 75, recently revealed she thinks everybody should have Botox, a type of wrinkle-filling injection, to maintain their youthful appearances.
She said: "Everyone should do Botox. Botulism is everywhere - in the air we breathe. I always say a little botulism never hurt anyone."
However, Joan - who is currently writing a book on plastic surgery entitled 'Men Are Stupid and Like Big Boobs' - admits there are dangers to going under the knife.
She added: "I'm writing a practical guide to it, about all the things that can go wrong. You must never forget that when you go under the knife it's a major operation. Take a good look around as you go under, you may not come round. So I look at the downsides and the upsides."
