I Want to Hang with Kathy Griffin

Kathy Griffin

I’m heading to Nantucket this weekend with my friends.  It’s going to be a great time and I’m really looking forward to it…but, I would be lying if I were saying that I wasn’t completely bummed out to be missing Kathy Griffin’s stand-up act which will be in and around New England this very weekend.  I’ve missed her in the past and I was determined to not miss her again this summer…damn social life.

I just finished watching tonight’s episode of MY LIFE ON THE D LIST.  That show makes me laugh like no other (well I suppose I get a few chuckles from AGE OF LOVE, but nothing like Kathy’s show).  Tonight’s episode followed Kathy around as she performed at two “unique” venues – the Gay Porn Awards and a prison.  Life on the D list people – it ain’t always glamorous.

Kathy killed at the Gay Porn Awards as she was amongst her people, but I was a bit nervous about her performing at a prison. And while the prison offered a slightly different crowd, Kathy was still a big hit.  She took the time to get to know a little bit more about prison life so she could include some relevant humor in her act. And aren’t we all better off for knowing how to start a ROY about that LURD in Cell Block A*?  She was brilliant and the inmates loved her!!

I don’t think Kathy Griffin’s humor is for everyone (especially those who don’t like to laugh) but I think she is hysterical and she is the type of celeb that I would love to go to dinner with.  You know, grab my girlfriends, head to a bar and just dish with Kathy Griffin.  How fun would that be?  Next year Kathy…I promise I won’t miss your show.

    I saw her at the Warfield (in SF) twice last year…
    She’s pee-in-your-pants hilarious…
    I do agree that she’s an acquired taste. She’s definitely a comedienne for the more liberal coasts than the mid-west…

    I’ve been a dedicated reader for a long time, but hearing that you find that woman funny and would like to hang out with her, makes me lose respect for you(not really). I just don’t see what her appeal is, she’s loud and annoying and I don’t think she has any appealing qualities. I have NEVER laughed at anything that she has ever done. Whenever I see her on TV I start panicing and must change the channel ASAP! And I don’t hate comedians, JUST HER. She has zero talent.

    Top Comedians:
    1. Richard Jeni(RIP)
    2. Jim Gaffigan
    3. Sarah Silverman

    I LOVE that you love Kathy! Sorry, Jake. She is effing hilarious. But then I look at your list of favorite comedians? I don’t think any of them are funny. So to each his own. GMMR, if you think she is funny on TV? Wait until you see her live! I got to see her last summer and it was the best show I have been to in a long time.

    i’m all about the griffin as well, haha. i saw her live in long island a few months ago & my friends & i were crying of laughter in the first few minutes….i’m so excited you’re talking about her show!! jake- everyone’s entitled to their opinion, but i do find it interesting that sarah silverman is your 3rd fave comedian & you don’t like kathy’s sense of humor…their style is definitely different, but to me anyway, i feel like their language (@ times) is pretty similar. i guess i figured if you’re offended by a certain language, you won’t like either one of them but if you love girls that talk that way, you’d like them both! ha- anyway, i do like sarah, but i love kathy!!

    Jake – To each their own but you call out Kathy Griffin for being loud and annoying and then you list Sarah Silverman as one of your top three comics? Come on now.

    Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Sarah Silverman (serious girl crush I think she is so funny), but let’s call a spade a spade…Sarah is loud and annoying as well.

    Kathy Griffin is definitely my favorite comedian by far. This season of D-List has been so great, especially the most recent episode. I even loved how she made fun of Michigan (where I live) a while back. Her characterization of everyone of us being hicks made me laugh my ass off.

  8. Jake on July 11th, 2007 3:24 pm

    Maybe my problem is her voice or her lack of talent or the fact that nothing she ever said has ever even made me laugh. I guess I understand that people like her, but I’d rather be beaten about the head by Dwight’s numbchucks than have to watch one second of her show.

    Other than your choice of Kathy Griffin, I’m a big fan of all things GMMR.

    Have you ever REALLY watched an episode of “My Life on the D-List?”

  10. DarthMom on July 12th, 2007 10:54 am

    To ad 2121 — I’m a midwestern republican and I find Kathy Griffin hilarious! She’s got plenty of fans in the midwest — if she didn’t I don’t think she wouldn’t even have cracked the D-List!
