An Evening With Kathy Griffin
Nov 5 , 2014 Doors: 7:30pm Show: 11:00PM
Two-time Emmy® and GRAMMY award-winning comedian Kathy Griffin is a towering figure on television, on tour and in publishing. She breaks through the entertainment clutter with her universally recognized brand of pull-no-punches comedy. This year, Kathy made history with her 6th consecutive GRAMMY nomination and first win for Best Comedy Album (Kathy Griffin: Calm Down Gurrl), joining Whoopi Goldberg and Lily Tomlin as the only other female comedians to ever win GRAMMY awards for Best Comedy Album. In 2013, Kathy was inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records for writing and starring in an unprecedented 20 televised stand-up specials– more than any comedian in history. Buoyed by her dedicated and engaged fans, Kathy’s live standup performances are legendary and in a class of their own. Not only do hundreds of thousands of people flock to see her perform sold out shows everywhere from Carnegie Hall to the Sydney Opera House, Kathy also draws a huge audience to CNN’s New Year’s Eve special, which she has co-hosted with Anderson Cooper since 2007, beating Fox News in the coveted ratings demographic. She is one of television’s go-to hosts for premier live events. Griffin’s sure-fire hosting success led to her own LIVE late night talk show, Kathy. It was where the biggest celebrities went to have the most fun. Her boisterous and revealing memoir, Official Book Club Selection: A Memoir According to Kathy Griffin, debuted at No. 1 on the New York Times Bestseller List. Please join us as we continue to celebrate the GRAMMY Museum’s first-ever Comedy Month with An Evening With Kathy Griffin, hosted by Vice President of The GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares Scott Goldman.
