What Makes Joe Posa the Perfect Joan Rivers

In his new stage show, Joe Posa imagines Joan Rivers performing one last time before entering Heaven. Thankfully, death has not made her any less rude.

Certainly, the figure in the outrageous black and gold ruffled coat and black pants on stage at New York’s Metropolitan Room sounds and looks a lot like Joan Rivers.

As someone fortunate enough to have interviewed the real Rivers a few times—the final time, her last major interview before her death in August 2014—the similarities of voice and presence between the figure—the performer Joe Posa—and Rivers are resonant and mesmerizing.

Joan-who-isn’t-Joan, who is already holding us spellbound, is Joe Posa, an almost 50-year-old actor and former dancer. His “The Bitch Is Back” performance is not a simple drag act: He truly inhabits the Rivers persona—and Rivers herself loved his act.

Rivers died, aged 81, while undergoing a throat procedure; her daughter, Melissa, settled a medical malpractice suit against the facility earlier this month.

Posa-as-Joan comes on stage waving and flapping at the air, like a demented crow, rasping that salty ashtray-growl of hers, and she immediately starts scything merrily away at celebrity images and reputations.

“Celine Dion: She’s so thin. When I saw her in Las Vegas the black suit she was wearing made her look like an umbrella.”

The audience laughed.

“We mustn’t laugh. She just buried her grandfather.” (A typically Rivers response to the death of Dion’s husband, René Angélil, 26 years her senior.) “Joan” says that when she got to Heaven she ran into Robin Williams. He says, “Joan, you’re in a better place.” Rivers replies to him, “I’m not in a better place. I’ve got a house in the Hamptons.”

When Rivers was alive, Posa’s was the classiest imitation act around; now he is traveling around the country with a memorial show. “Joan” is told at the gates of Heaven they’re not quite ready for her, so she has come back to give us one more show.

It is not just Posa’s guttural voice, outrageous clothes, and stooped-missile bearing; Posa captures Rivers’s warm emotional presence too.

Los Angeles (AP) – A Los Angeles man charged with fatally shooting his 29-year-old son for being gay had repeatedly threatened to kill him over his sexual orientation, prosecutors say.

Amir Issa, 29, was found shot to death just outside the family home on March 29. While the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office charged father Shehada Issa, 69, April 1 with murder as a hate crime in the son’s death, investigators on April 2 still were trying to determine responsibility for a second killing at the home discovered by police at the same time, that of Amir’s mother, police spokesman Officer Mike Lopez said.
