Then Kathy inflated with excitement like a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day balloon (a balloon in size 0 black Chanel) and danced onto the stage, giving the applauding crowd the finger with glee. She then proceeded to talk and entertain seamlessly for over two hours.
I snuck around to watch from the front of house. Kathy wasn’t just telling stories from her repertoire. It was new material. So new, in fact, that she was telling stories about what happened earlier that day. All day she was collecting stories, working them out in her head, and now she was telling them for the first time in front of 4,000 people. That takes balls. Crazy talent and balls. She’s weaving new material in with the old – going off on tangents, then coming back to finish another story – all without a hitch. I realize at this point that I’m gushing, but I’ve never seen anything like it.
When the concert ended, Kathy high-tailed it out of the theater and headed for some comfort food with Team Griffin, where she relaxed like an athlete after an event – reviewing the highlights of the show and blowing off steam. I was tired just watching her, knowing that she was going on again tomorrow night, with more new material that was probably brewing right now as she was joking over pie.
love, love, love kathy griffin. makes me laugh and laugh. have seen her live shows and they are the best entertainment. makes you forget all your cares and woes.
I couldn't believe my ears when I heard you refer to Trickatilamania on your show. My son has suffered with this since 2nd grade. He is a Sophomore in high school now. I feel so bad when he has an episode and before you know it there is a bald spot on his head and we have to shave it all off. Does your assistant have any tricks he uses to help him through this? If you want to bring attention to something bring attention to Trickaltilamania,. I sure wish more people knew about it and would understand my son and not think he is a freak because he pulls his hair out. Sometimes it is his eyelashes and eyebrows..mostly his hair on his head.,sometimes he will pull the hair on his legs to keep his hands out of his head. Again...so surprised to hear you mention it on your show.
I laughed to hard at last nights episode that I thought I was going to wake up the boss. I get u so much, you crazy bitch. You have a huge fan in East Troy, Wisconsin.
Love you love your show!
HELLLLLOOOOOOO Love you so much!! I am reading your Mom's book right now and I can just hear her voice as I read, I really am enjoying it. Love your show too. Keep up the great work! Much admiration from Toledo Ohio!
OMG!!! the Tom waxing show, I thought I was going to die!! I have not laughed that hard in forever, I had tears rolling down my face. Keep up the great work, you all crack me up. Love your show! I've never seen you live - but will next time you come to town --SO FUNNY--
I'll unabashedly gush over Kathy, too!! I think she's brilliant, on the same scale as some of the old greats of Hollywood's golden era, in the company of the likes of Lucille Ball, Jack Benny, Foster Brooks, Don Rickles, Charlie Chaplin, Carol Burnett, Jackie Gleason, George Carlin, Fanny Brice, Carol Channing...
And, while throngs of people think she's hilarious, I don't think most people realize how calculated and honed her schtick really is. Her wit is lightning-quick, her mind never stops, and qualities such as these enable her to continue to expand the persona we see when she's in front of a camera, an audience, or in the presence of "Hollywood bullsh**".
It's a persona. She does it because it's her job, and she's the best at it. She's not awful nor insensitive. She's not any of those other negative things some dullards think of her. In fact, she's quite sensitive, sometimes fragile, and in my mind, she deserves the best.
I laughed so hard @ Tuesday's episode I cried!! Tom getting a wax job was HYSTERICAL! Keep the show more about your inner circle and less about your A-list friends...much more entertaining!
I have to admit I haven't really been watching your show, i am not crazy abut the format. However, I have been watching you on the talk show circuit and loving you! I was taken aback to learn you had to pay for your own advertising on your emmy nomination. I have to say with all the hit reality shows Bravo is airing they don't have any money to help you out!! Shame on you Bravo!!
Luv you immensely Kathy. I love the way you can inject humor into simple, horrible, everyday things. I have been a fan for many years and will continue for many more (I hope). Get more interaction between you and Cher. That seems to be some of the funnier stuff except when you're just being YOU! I've all but given up on the "Housewives", so I guess Kathy, Rachel, Jeff, Tabitha, and Tom & Padma will have to be my viewing schedule. I hate it when you go on hiatus, but still love to watch the re-airings. YOU GO GIRL!!! Hugs to Team Griffin which keep you going, and to all your gays that assist you in so many ways.
Kathy LOVE LOVE LOVE you (: i'm Team Griffin tooo . lol (: your like 1 of my favorite person ever , i wanna meet yu one day in person, & get your autograph (: i love your show to you ROCK . i love you ieshaa

kathy, I just heard that Chance died. I am so, so sorry for you. It is THE WORST feeling ever. The hole is so big and hard to fill. Our cat Sophia died of the same thing in January. My husband never loved anything before (I don't even think my death would affect him that much). I almost had to take him to Hoag Hospital (in orange county) one Sunday until he got up off the couch, went for a walk and found a cat tied to a tree. He brought him home and we are convinced God sent the cat to fill the hole in his heart. To see you cry, made me cry. Chance will send you another dog, but in the meantime, know that Chance is in Rainbow Bridge waiting for you.
I want to express my sympathy for your incredible loss. I can relate with losing an animal that was the love of your life as I lost My molly after 13 years. I wish you peace in your happy memories of Chance and the incredible life you shared.All my best Keith
I'm a big fan of your show, and your work, but my reason for the comment is that I just watched tonight's episode that talks about the passing of your dog, Chance. This hits very close to home, because a few days ago I lost my beloved dog, Misha, who I had for 15 years. She was like my child, and both my husband and I are grieving our loss. We shared such a special bond, that I know will never be replaced. I just wanted to say that I know what you're going through, hang in there, and thanks for the laughs.
Dear Kathy---- May i say that my son and I watch you religiously. We find you to be a comedic genius--- a wit that is both quick and intelligent and interwoven flawlessly with a story line. I adore the way you banter with your mother as it reminds me of the manner in which my son and I convey our love to one another-- with laughter and sarcasm. My best to Tom and Tiffany as well. Team Griffin all the way. My son has Optic Nerve Atrophy which makes it very difficult to read. We will be ordering your new book on audio disc if available.
I wish to send you our most sincere sympathy for your loss of Chance. Our hearts go out to you. We are happy, however, and so thrilled that you are giving Larry a home and an opportunity to become a part of your heart.
Thank you for making us laugh, making us cry, and for being such a giving entertainer. You are "A LIST" in our book!!!!!!!
P.S.----- You were brilliant in Law and Order SVU. Here's hoping for an Emmy
I've grown to love your work and understand your amazing humor but when I watched the show where you spoke of the loss of your dog Chance, well I grew to love you. To love you for your love of animals. I am so sorry that Chance had to leave, its something one never gets over, losing a loved one. It help to remember that your companion had a good life, being with you and knowing you loved him and gave to him all that you could, and would have given him more, if only he had more time with you. I wish all people knew what we know, then no animal, no dog no cat, no horse, No Animal would ever be without a loving home. They always give more than we could ever give back.
