Joan Rivers' last recording before her death on September 4 has reportedly surfaced, and in it she complains of troubles with her voice.

"I told [you] I didn’t feel good. My voice has been bothering me. I don’t know what it is . . . I feel like s**t. I’m tired already," the late comedienne said between takes. According to the New York Post, she was in the studio just hours before her fateful endoscopy procedure recording a radio ad for her friend Brad Zimmerman’s upcoming off-Broadway show, "My Son the Waiter, a Jewish Tragedy."

According to Zimmerman's representative, "Joan used Brad as an opening act many times, and when we asked her if she’d do the spot, she said 'sure' immediately."

The recording has not yet been authenticated.

Rivers falters several times to record the ad copy all the way through in one clean take.

"Hi, I’m Joan Rivers, can we talk?" she begins one take, throwing some oomph into it. "About . . . Brad Zimmerman . . . he waited on tables for 29 years — stupid or what? — before he got up the nerve to write a hilarious show. Stupid!"

Giving up on the take, she seems frustrated with her voice, and that frustration transfers to her criticism of the ad copy.

"This is terrible copy. Who wrote this crap? I feel sick . . . Anyway, the critics are calling it hilarious, a total must-see, and I love him, too. So don’t wait 29 years to see my friend."

At the end of the clip she says she's had enough.

"That’s it — I don’t feel good. F**k!"
