Kathy Griffin:Kathy Griffin's acerbic wit, as showcased on her hit stand-up comedy albums and tour dates in 2011, have propelled her well beyond the D-List in recent years. Griffin has dabbled in nearly every medium of entertainment, including stand-up, acting, writing, modeling, commentating, producing, and in a dozen or so other capacities. In addition to numerous stand-up tour dates in 2011 that feature the comedy that has made her famous, fans of Kathy Griffin are also excited about the possible DVD release of her recent Broadway show, Kathy Griffin Wants a Tony.
The Grammy nominee and Emmy winner is best known for her role as the bubbly best friend to Brooke Shields on Suddenly Susan, as well for her hugely popular reality show, Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List. Inspiration for the latter show began forming during her 1998 HBO stand-up special, Kathy Griffin: A Hot Cup of Talk, which gained her widespread recognition as a comedienne. Griffin has also displayed a talent for red carpet commentary, proving to be both a great sidekick and friend to Joan Rivers. Her 2009 autobiography, Official Book Club Selection, became a NY Times Bestseller and gave her fans juicy gossip that she loves.
In 2011, Kathy Griffin has a new stand-up special, Kathy Griffin: Gurl Down!, running on Bravo.
