Funnywoman Joan Rivers showed off her generous side by delivering a meal to a businessman at his office after he missed her dinner party.

The veteran comedienne hosted a bash at her apartment in New York City on Tuesday night (22Jul14) but Henry Schleiff, president of media giant Discovery Communications, was unable to attend.

Rivers was determined Schleiff should not miss out, so she sent a meal of steak, potatoes and beans, with chocolate cake for dessert, to his offices the following morning.

According to New York Post gossip column Page Six, Rivers included a cheeky note that read, "Keep the plates, they're stolen from Qvc."
