Kathy Griffin to Perform at Granada Theatre, 2/1
When it comes to dishing Hollywood gossip and celebrity blunders, Kathy Griffin is one of the country's top stand-up comedians. On Saturday, February 1 at 8:00pm, this two-time Emmy winner, NY Times best-selling author, and five-time Grammy nominee will perform live at The Granada Theatre. In her downright hilarious way, with outrageously wild style and delivery, Griffin will have audiences laughing out loud as she shares candid observations about every day life, her dating experiences, and embellished celebrity tales. The comedienne's performance is presented by the Granada Theatre Concert Series, sponsored in part by Montecito Bank & Trust, and Lexus.
After moving to California, from her native Chicago, and joining the famed Los Angeles Groundlings comedy improvisational troupe, Kathy began building her resume with guest starring roles on TV series, including "ER" and "Seinfeld." In 1996, Kathy's dream of playing a sidekick on a sitcom came true when she landed the role of Brook Shields' sharp-tongued colleague on the NBC show "Suddenly Susan."
Following her various TV guest spots, Kathy began gaining notice as a stand-up comedienne and landed specials with HBO, hosted NBC reality series "Average Joe" as well as the MTV series "Kathy's So-Called Reality." In August 2005, Kathy's reality show, "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List," debuted on Bravo to rave reviews. Through the six seasons for this show, Kathy was nominated for a total of six Emmy Awards, winning two of them in the Outstanding Reality Program category. Over the years, Kathy also performed many successful stand-up specials for Bravo, several of which were nominated for an Emmy in the Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special category. In March 2011, Kathy brought her stand up show to Broadway with "Kathy Griffin Wants A Tony," and received rave reviews from outlets all across the board, including The New York Times and the New York Post.
