Comedienne Sarah Silverman paid tribute to Joan Rivers over the weekend (04Oct14) by portraying the late comic on U.S. sketch show Saturday Night Live.

The A Million Ways to Die in the West star donned a short, blonde wig and a burgundy fur coat to impersonate Rivers as she hosted a Hollywood roast in heaven.

In the skit, Silverman, as Rivers, poked fun at late celebrities including Eva Gardner, Richard Pryor and Freddie Mercury, who was portrayed by Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine.

Rivers passed away following a routine throat surgery last month (Sep14) in New York.
