Sarah Silverman pays tribute to Joan Rivers on Saturday Night Live

Comedienne Sarah Silverman paid tribute to Joan Rivers over the weekend (04Oct14) by portraying the late comic on sketch show Saturday Night Live.

The A Million Ways to Die in the West star donned a short, blonde wig and a burgundy fur coat to impersonate Rivers as she hosted a Hollywood roast in heaven.


In the skit, Silverman, as Rivers, poked fun at late celebrities including Eva Gardner, Richard Pryor and Freddie Mercury, who was portrayed by Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine.


Rivers passed away following a routine throat surgery last month (Sep14) in New York.
