Kathy Griffin Wants a Tony

February 11, 2011


Kathy Griffin
is my hero. Or, shero. Or whatever. The unabashedly over-the-top comedienne, who has long made a joke of Hollywood’s awards-heavy self-congratulatory nature, is doing it again. With the announcement yesterday that she is going to Broadway for an eight-show run called, appropriately enough, Kathy Griffin Wants a Tony, Griffin is once again doing what she does best. Remember her CD, For Your Consideration that came out just in time for Grammy consideration? Or, her autobiography, Official Book Club Selection? How could you not love someone with this sense of humor?

 

Griffin says that each show will have fresh material “due to the revolving door of pop culture, political and celebrity missteps.” Performances begin March 11 and run through March 19 at the Belasco Theatre. This will be Griffin’s Broadway debut.
