Phyllis Diller dead at 95

PHYLLIS Diller, the frumpy comedienne whose jokes lampooning domestic life with her fictitious husband "Fang" laid the groundwork for a generation of female comedians, has died. She was 95.

Diller died today at her home in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, her talent agent Fred Wostbrock said.

He didn't know the cause of death.

In March 1999, Diller suffered a heart attack and doctors implanted a pacemaker.

One of the first widely popular female stand-up comics, Diller went from being a 37-year-old housewife to a professional jokester after her real husband lost his job.
