RIPower, goddess

Loved her standup.
 
2022-10-06 7:28:36 PM  
That sucks. Who's gonna call me a pig now?

Seriously though, it sucks. She was great.
 
2022-10-06 7:36:03 PM  
Figured she would always die in an accordian accident.

Aw man...

RIP funny woman. You shined a few lights where no one dared tread before you.

How can I live out the tenants of Judyism now??
 
2022-10-06 8:25:48 PM  
Awww...

I saw her perform at Pride in Minneapolis in 1998 (I think?).

Among other jokes she riffed on Martha Steward, calling her a "Nazi Amish Milkmaid"

Farking hilarious.

Funny, outrageous woman. Really enjoyed her standup.

Rest In Peace.

Didn't get her, kinda like how I don't get Tracy Morgan, but obviously she had enough of a fan base to garner herself a series of Diet Dr. Pepper ads back in 1988.

/RIP Weird Funnylady

Saw Emo last week during the Weird Al tour and he told a joke about his "ex-wife". I cringed a little.
 
2022-10-06 10:25:28 PM  
RIP Petite Flower. She was one of a kind. I'm actually shocked at her real birth date!
 
2022-10-06 10:31:32 PM  
Odd how I haven't heard that name in decades and I expect to never hear it again.

(I offer this as a service. Spend about 20 hours writing stories and musings about the passed one. I promise to do a half assed {machine based if you want or I can do it manually} sentiment analysis and use those results to write a spot on eulogy of 50 words or less. I call it a summation.)

You cannot possess her.

Never heard of her. I doubt she was funnier than Amy Schumer though

Oh we do miss her comedic genius.

They are both funny.   Amy and a herd of other comediennes made a good living off of Judy's shtick.    Sometimes ya gotta sweat like a sow!
 
2022-10-06 11:04:51 PM  
Judy seemed like a force of nature and a true original, much more so than the many comics who later came across as riffing on what she started, if not outright stealing her attitude and a lot of her material. And I think you know who comes to mind first on that score.

RIP funny lady, I mean petite flower. And yeah, fark cancer.
 
2022-10-06 11:11:49 PM  
Awwww  :(

My date and I had several audience cameos during her HBO special. They filmed at a club in SF, and the camera guy kept coming back and putting the camera seemingly inches from our faces, and that's about all the Judy csb I can muster.

RIP
 
2022-10-06 11:15:20 PM  
RIP, Judy Tenuta. She has the distinction of being the only comic who told a joke that was censored by HBO.

She made it to the pearly gates before Gary Larson, so he won't be waiting to greet her.

She converted me to Judyism.

A gentleman can play the accordion, but doesn't.

Ah, Judy, the original manic pixie dream girl.
 
2022-10-07 12:37:03 AM  
Did anyone else see: "Goddess of Love" and think of Vanna White?

Just me?

OK

One of the responses to the "women can't do comedy" claims.

RIP, accordion lady.

Let me guess ... Roseanne Barr.

Damn, she did hide her age well.

"I should have my own show by now. Yeah. How many damn sitcoms does Kelsey Grammer need? How many more stupid Housewives do they need throwing tables and limbs at each other. Yeah, I guess I need to take off my artificial leg and throw it at Vanderpump. I like doing live shows - it's just getting to them that's a hassle.Doing films is fun too ... a good film ... but there's a lot of waiting around."

Huh. I wonder if she knew about that before she passed...

I would have sworn she had already died tragically young. Maybe it was all the fark comments when we found out she was sick.

I had a bit of a crush on her. Actually emailed her and got a response back a number of years ago.

/ I was rather proud of rhyming "accordion" with "let's get it on" and she found it funny
 
2022-10-07 1:39:17 AM  
Saw her wondering around SDCC with her accordion. The young nerds didn't have a clue who she was.
