Kathy Griffin @ Uptown Theater 3/22
Kathy Griffin, stand-up comedian, actress, author and television personality best known for her reality show Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List. The double Emmy winning Chicago native is a multi-faceted performer with a rapid-fire wit. In Australia she is probably most recognisable for her four-year stint on the NBC sitcom “Suddenly Susan” as Vickie Groener, Brooke Shields’ acerbic colleague. Kathy also had a recurring guest role on Seinfeld as the character Sally Weaver. Famous for her signature style of social satire that has been perfected over the last 15 years, Kathy Griffin promises more stories, more dirt to dish, more of what she should not say but you know you want to hear than almost anyone in showbiz. As a reviewer said “Ms. Griffin’s appeal is in her ability to combine insider access to the world of the famous (or at least the pseudo-famous) and her willingness to be frank about its inhabitants. Kathy has the rare ability to talk to a giant audience as if it’s an intimate conversation. She’s the hilarious friend recounting day-to-day stories, except she never lets you get a word in edgewise”.
