She has been more than frank about her multiple cosmetic surgeries, but Joan Rivers penchant for going under than knife has left her looking more and more like a caricature.

In fact, some unpleasant observers have said she looks much like The Joker, from the Batman comic series.

The 73-year-old actress and comedienne is in London for the opening of her new play 'A Work in Progress by a Life in Progress' at the Leicester Square Theatre. joan rivers

But it was her strange appearance which garned most the attention, as her wide mouth and surprised eyes reminded onlookers of the character from the famous films, which was played most recently by tragic star Heath Ledger, who died earlier this year.

Joan has spoken candidly about her multiple surgeries. She has said: 'You want to look as good as you can. We all want to look at attractive people. It's a business.

'My motto is "better a new face coming out of an old car than an old face coming out of a new car". Spend your money on you.' And she has.

Joan Rivers cosmetically enhanced looks have left her looking like The Joker. Seen here played by the late Heath Ledger in film 'The Dark Knight'

Oh, dear. Kenny Rogers is worse though. I'm 65...and after being a hot chick for many years, I'm resolved that beauty is skin deep.

I look at the pictures of my grandmother and grandfather at my age and think of how much I loved them through their golden years....just as they were.

Did this post escape from the circular file at Trivial Pursuit headquarters?

As all now know, the real Joker was nominated by the Democrats.

Overall I think Joan’s a good person and a big Republican.

About as bad as Burt Reynolds face lift that left him looking chinese because they pulled the skin too tightly next to his eyes.
And Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, that ended up looking like Alfred E. Newman.

Redd Foxx used to do a routine about a lady having so many surgeries that the cleft in her chin was what used to be here navel....

Concur.

Interview with Rivers:

Interviewer: One of the most surprising things to me is that you’re a Republican…

Joan Rivers: How can you not be? How can anyone not be? How can you live in a country when you can not say the Pledge of Allegiance anymore? Insane people have taken over the Democratic Party. They’re mad. They’ve taken over the asylum. To be worried about what the terrorists were eating at Camp X-ray, I think you’re beyond insane.

Quite a while ago I came across an autobiographical book by Joan Rivers. I had never been a big fan, after reading her book I was very impressed by her determination.

In one memorable scene, after bombing horribly at a Jewish country club where her parents were members, she fled home and went to her room. After a while she could hear her parents come out onto the patio below and begin a conversation. She overheard her father saying: "What can we do? She has no talent!".

Somehow, even after this and similar debacles, she forced herself to keep trying for many years, eventually developing recognized talent and achieving success.

I don’t know why these people won’t just age gracefully. They have to see what it has done to others who’ve had the surgeries. There’s that point where it really become frightening—for all of them. The eyes look like they can’t close & the mouth starts migrating across their face. Not a good look for anyone.

I think the press just wants to reach out and bash any Republicans for prophylactic purposes. Hit her and ridicule her before she can say something cruelly hilarious about the Messiah.

I suspect that too.

And the “good” daughter from Beverly Hills 90210 got trashed routinely in the media after she spoke at the GOP convention.

There is still a Hollywood blacklist. Socialists lie. Stalinists revise the historical record. Orwell warned us.
