NEW YORK, Dec. 3 (UPI) -- The 47-year career of U.S. comedian Phyllis Diller is set to be revisited with the new DVD, "Goodnight, We Love You: The Life and Legend of Phyllis Diller."
The New York Post reported the new DVD, scheduled to be released Tuesday, will recapture the comedian's revolutionary comedy routines and her rapid-fire delivery.
"In my head, it was, 'Get to the laugh as fast as possible,'" Diller said of the style that the "Guinness Book of World Record" cites as producing 12 laughs a minute. "In other words, edit, edit, edit. No extra words."
The comedian, who retired in 2002, credits the historical lack of female comedians and limited outlets for her incredible rise in popularity.
"I had a tremendously quick rise, which is impossible nowadays because there's a thousand different outlets," the 89-year-old comedian said. "When I started, there were only three -- ABC, NBC, CBS. So exposure at that time was platinum."
