Two-time Emmy and Grammy Award-winning comedian Kathy Griffin is a #1 New York Times bestselling author, recently releasing her much-anticipated second book, Kathy Griffin's Celebrity Run-Ins: My A-Z Index, in November 2016. The book is an A-Z compendium of the celebrities she's met over the years and the outrageous, charming, and sometimes bizarre anecdotes only she can tell about them. Simultaneously, she revealed a brand new nationwide, 50-city standup tour under the same moniker that began in January of 2017.
In 2016, Kathy completed her 80-city, "Like A Boss" tour with stops from coast to coast including a four-night run at the famed Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, and two sold-out performances at the illustrious Kennedy Center in DC and the iconic Carnegie Hall in New York.
In 2014, Kathy made history with her sixth 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 standup specials-more than any comedian in history.
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. Griffin won two Primetime Emmy Awards for her hit reality series, "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List," which aired for six years on Bravo. It was nominated every single year of its run. The show also won the GLAAD Media Award for Best Reality Program and was nominated six consecutive times by the Producers Guild of America.
Kathy was a cast member on NBC's "Suddenly Susan" and guest starred on "Seinfeld" and "Law & Order: SVU." She lent her unique voice to animated characters in Shrek Forever After and the award-winning television shows "The Simpsons," "American Dad," and "Dilbert."
Griffin's other awards and honors include The Human Rights Campaign's Ally for Equality, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America's Leadership in Entertainment honor, GLAAD's Vanguard award, The Trevor Life Award from the Trevor Project, and a Gracie Award for Outstanding Female Lead.
