Joy Behar face-plants live on ‘The View’

Joy Behar was definitely not a “stand-up” comedian Thursday.

The 79-year-old co-host of “The View” face-planted as she walked onstage for Thursday’s live taping just before reaching her seat.

The cameras weren’t on her at that instant, but the audience could be heard gasping as the image cut to co-hosts Sara Haines and Sunny Hostin tending to her.

The women also were joined by moderator Whoopi Goldberg and a stagehand in helping Ms. Behar up.

“Just stand,” Ms. Goldberg could be heard saying.

Ms. Behar continued with the show, saying she was not badly hurt.

As she sat at the table, she joked that it was “25 years [and] that has never happened,” before asking in mock anger “who do I sue!?”

Ms. Behar did add that she only was continuing because she was clear-headed enough to monitor her own symptoms.

“The main thing — just to talk seriously — when Bob Saget fell, he died,” she said. “If you hit your head, and you feel dizzy or you have blurred vision, or you feel like you want to go to sleep, go to the doctor. Because that will kill you.”

The fiery comedian concluded, “I’m a klutz!”
