Biography

Kathleen Mary “Kathy” Griffin (born November 4, 1960) is an American actress, model, stand-up comedian, television personality, New York Times best-selling author and an LGBT rights advocate. Griffin first gained recognition for appearances on two episodes of Seinfeld, and then for her supporting role on the NBC sitcom Suddenly Susan. She was the star of the Bravo reality show Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, for which she won two Emmy Awards as executive producer. She has also worked as a voice artist and red carpet commentator, in addition to several other career pursuits. In 2009, 2010 and 2011 she was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album. In her bid to win a Tony Award, she made her Broadway debut in Kathy Griffin Wants a Tony in March 2011.

On 10 June 2008, Griffin released a comedy CD titled For Your Consideration. It is Griffin’s first audio-only release of her stand-up material. The disc was recorded at the ETK Theatre at the Grand Theatre Center For The Arts in Tracy, California on 17 February 2008. Included on the disc are her takes on various celebrities and her personal life. Griffin stated that she decided to release this CD to try to win a Grammy award. On 3 December 2008, Griffin was nominated for a Grammy for Best Comedy Album. However, she lost to George Carlin’s It’s Bad For Ya.

On 25 August 2009, Griffin released a second comedy album, Suckin’ It For The Holidays, in another bid for a Grammy. The album was initially released as a digital download and retail released on 3 November 2009. Despite the album’s holiday title, it contains little holiday-related content, and it just barely made the nominations cut-off.
