Lost at the Smithsonian with Aasif Mandvi - episode 4

Phyllis Diller's Gag File

A metal file cabinet.

Phyllis Diller was a 38-year old, practically homeless mother of five when she started her standup career. She was a trailblazer, using her jokes to open doors for all the women who would come after her. In a lucky break for history, she was also a compulsive note taker and gave a filing cabinet with 50,000 jokes to the Smithsonian for safe keeping.

Please note, at the time of the podcast, the gag file is not on display.
