Today, Kathy Griffin was in front of the Belasco Theatre handing out flyers with rave reviews of her as yet unopened Broadway show. Last week, Double Emmy winner, Grammy nominated and NY Times Best Selling author Kathy Griffin announced two more performances of "Kathy Griffin WANTS A TONY" on Broadway. Performance times added are Monday, March 14th at 8pm and Saturday, March 19th at 2pm. Every night will be full of fresh material due to the revolving door of pop culture, political and celebrity missteps. "I won't be able to hold back. If you are in the market for an evening of laughter, swearing and negativity you've found the right show!"

Dishing on all pop culture and shining a light on inappropriate water cooler talk "Kathy Griffin WANTS A TONY" 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. Let's just say Broadway may never be the same again! Performances begin March 11th and run through March 19th 2011 at the Belasco Theatre. Performance times are as follows: Monday at 8pm; Tuesday at 7pm; Wednesday-Friday at 8pm; Saturday at 2pm and 8pm; Sunday at 3pm.

Tickets are priced from $61.50 to $121.50 for all performances and are on sale now at telecharge.com or visit www.kathygiffin.net.

Kathy Griffin moved from her native Chicago and joined the famed Los Angeles Groundlings Theatre where she was a student and later a teacher. Kathy 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.
