The Long Center presents Kathy Griffin, February 4th in Dell Hall.
Two-time Emmy and Grammy award-winning comedian Kathy Griffin is a towering figure on television, on tour and in publishing. She breaks through the entertainment clutter with her universally recognized brand of pull-no-punches comedy. This year, Kathy announced her 80-city, “Like A Boss” Tour, with stops from coast to coast including the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, CA, Carnegie Hall in New York, NY. And, of course, at the Long Center!
In 2014, she made history with her 6th 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 stand-up specials – more than any comedian in history. Buoyed by her dedicated and engaged fans, Kathy’s live standup performances are legendary and in a class of their own. Hundreds of thousands of people flock to see her perform sold out shows everywhere from Carnegie Hall to the Sydney Opera House.
