I was just about to post this. I first saw her when I was in my teens(early 80's) and thought she was funny.

Yes, she was a good stand-up comic. Something I noted too. Was the contrast between the Celebrity roasts today and those of Dean Martin's Celebrity roasts. The latter with Phylliss Diller and the like could raise a good laugh without all the sexual vulgarity(trying to raise a laugh) in the present day Celebity roasts.
I attribute this to better talent.

She was good at stand up, a lot better than most people would have believed from her TV and movie appearances.

Phyllis Diller and Totie Fields were my two favorite female comedians back in the day......
