    Comedian Phyllis Diller -- who paved the way for today's female comics -- has died, TMZ has learned.

    Sources close to Diller tell us the comedian died at her L.A. home, surrounded by family. She was 95.

    RIP Phyllis Diller, you had a good long life and made a lot of people laugh.


    She did a lot of work for the USO during the Vietnam era, and traveled with Bob Hope on his tours.

    RIP funny girl.

    rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    RIP, Phyllis. She started her career in the St Louis area, where she was a housewife in the Webster Groves area (now a very trendy suburb with stately homes and beautiful trees). She lived a long and good life.

    Phyllis Diller dead at 95

    Diller with her trademark cigarette holder (Herb Ball/NBCU Photo Bank/Getty Images)Legendary comedienne Phyllis Diller, who blazed a trail for a generation of female comics with her brash and self-deprecating stand-up routine, has died. She was 95 years old.

    Diller had been suffering health problems as of late: She recently hurt her hip and wrist in a fall and has been living under hospice care at her Los Angeles home. She passed away there this morning, surrounded by family. Diller's longtime manager, Milton Suchin, told The Associated Press, "She died peacefully in her sleep and with a smile on her face."

    The funny lady, known for her wild hair and distinctive laugh, often poked fun at her less-than-glamorous looks: She started out in 1952 filming a local TV special entitled "Phyllis Diller: The Homely Friendmaker." She rose to fame with a series of TV specials alongside Bob Hope in the 1960s and later starred in several TV shows based around her stand-up act ("The Phyllis Diller Show," "The Beautiful Phyllis Diller Show"). She also frequently appeared on the seminal '60s variety show "Laugh-In" and as the featured comedian on "The Tonight Show With Johnny Carson."
