Last year, Griffin released her latest comedic memoir, “Kathy Griffin’s Celebrity Run-Ins: My A-Z Index.” Much of her new stand-up show is said to be adaptations from that work. “I pride myself on not making fun of people to their face. I actually prefer to wait until they leave the room and talk sh*t about them behind their backs,” Griffin said in a recent interview with The Seattle Times. “The nature of my brilliant and yet underrated art is that, typically, I’d rather watch something crazy and then be like how can I make this funny?”
Along with being a stand-up comedian, Griffin is also a Grammy Award-winning actress, reality TV star and New York Times bestselling author. She is perhaps best known for her Bravo show “Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List” as well as her role on the popular NBC series “Suddenly Susan.” She has appeared on several hilarious talk shows including “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “The View” and she holds a Guinness World Record for having more televised comedy specials – a grand total of 20 – than any other comedian, male or female.
