CBS This Morning visited the Friar's Club in New York to join a bunch of funny women who got together for lunch on Wednesday.
It was the kickoff for Marshall's Women in Comedy Festival, and those on hand included comedians Rita Rudner, Paula Poundstone, and Amy Stiller.
This Morning asked the three funny women who gave them the biggest laughs.
Says Rudner, "I always loved Phyllis Diller. I love Joan Rivers. I loved the fact that they just got on stage and did their act."
