Kathy Griffin – Comedian Kathy Griffin, a staple personality on Bravo with her outlandish stand-up specials and reality series “My Life on the D-List,” will be getting her own prime-time pop culture talk show on the network in the spring, the network announced Saturday.
“Kathy Griffin has signed on for her own weekly talk show, a home for her untamed take on the week in pop culture. Kathy will cover all the headlines and all the gossip, now served weekly along with feature stand-up routines, celebrity interviews and taped segments,” Bravo’s announced.
The show continues Bravo’s experiment with the talk-show format. Its first foray, “Watch What Happens Live,” has been successful with Andy Cohen as host; it kicks off its sixth season Sunday, which will see the show expand to five nights a week.
Titled “Kathy,” the show will feature Griffin’s rants on tabloid fodder, stand-up routines, celebrity interviews and taped segments.
In addition to the talk show, Griffin will also have two stand-up comedy specials air on the network this year — bringing her total 15 since 2005.
Griffin just got through with another co-hosting gig along Anderson Cooper on CNN’s New Year’s Eve coverage live from Times Square. The pair have their act down cold after years together and this time around, as she always tried to do, Griffin served up something special.
She stripped off her coat and blouse to reveal a sexy black lace bra, which she wore for a long segment from high atop the platform above Times Square. Cooper looked uncomfortable, as he usually does around Griffin who pokes him and teases him to provoke reactions.
Griffin, 51 is a native of Chicago, Illinois. She began her comedy career in Los Angeles as a member of the Groundlings and moved on to network sit-coms with a recurring role in “Senfield” and then a spot in the supporting cast of NBC’s “Suddenly Susan” starring Brooke Shields.
