Synopsis: 

Double Emmy winner, Grammy nominee and NY Times Best Selling author Kathy Griffin is taking her stand-up comedy show to Broadway in Kathy Griffin Wants a Tony for 8 performances only. Dishing on all pop culture and shining a light on inappropriate water cooler talk, the show will feature all new material about her hilarious observations and run-ins with celebrities. The show is subject to change nightly depending on what Kathy decides is the news of the day. Kathy Griffin moved from her native Chicago and joined the famed Los Angeles Groundlings Theatre where she was a student and later a teacher. She built up her resume doing guest spots on "ER", "X-files" and "Seinfeld" where she developed the recurring character ‘Sally Weaver’. Kathy went on to co-star alongside Brook Shields in "Suddenly Susan" which ran for four years on NBC. In 2005 Kathy entered the world of reality TV with her double Emmy winning show "Kathy Griffin- My Life on the D List" for Bravo. Her stand up specials "Kathy Griffin-Straight to Hell" (November 2008) and "Kathy Griffin; She’ll Cut a Bitch" (April 2009) were both nominated for an Emmy in the category Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special. Kathy’s memoir "Official Book Club" was # 1 on the New York Times best seller list. Kathy’s comedy albums "For Your Consideration"(2009) and "Kathy Griffin does the Bible Belt" (2011) have both been nominated for Grammy’s. Kathy is the recipient of the ‘GLAAD Vanguard Award’, received the Trevor Project’s ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ and ‘Ally for Equality Award’ from the Human Rights Campaign.

Her most tenaciously censorious handmaiden is surely Kathy Griffin, the flame-haired, torch-tongued stand-up comedian who has claimed the hypocrisies, peculiarities, misjudged plastic surgeries and occasional court appearances of semi-, quasi- and actual celebrities as her particular turf.

    Nerve Griffin

    Frank Scheck

    March 13, 2011: 'Let's talk about the 'Real Housewives,' " says Kathy Griffin, conspiratorially. And for the rest of her shamelessly titled "Kathy Griffin Wants a Tony," which opened its very brief run on Friday, she does just that -- dissecting every character on that TV franchise with the sarcasm that's made her a star, winning her two Emmys along the way.
