Redhead of the Week Makes Me Laugh

In her new book, comedian Kathy Griffin is said to reveal "intimate details" about growing up with a dysfunctional family in suburban Illinois, bombing as a young comedian in L.A., plastic surgery disasters, and even her much publicized divorce. It's not a mystery, really -- maybe a crime drama -- but we thought her marketing approach was interesting enough to pass on.

Look what we found on Kathy's website.

"Sign the Oprah Petition! We absolutely must get Kathy's book on Oprah's book club. Let Oprah hear all of you fans out there! Sign the petition now."

The feature story on her site has a link where you can sign her petition. Good luck with that one, Kathy.

We also found this on her website:

Can you believe it? Bravo will be airing Kathy's 7th stand-up special in what now has become a tradition. Her latest special, currently titled Balls of Steel (although last minute name changes have happened before so stay tuned) was recently taped in San Diego during two sold out shows.

As to what you can expect from Kathy's latest, she says "There will be a lot of foul language and sniping, a lot of opinions...a little fact, but I don’t really get bogged down by facts.". Look for the special on November 3rd.

KG rocks alright. She first came to my notice in that sitcom Suddenly Susan, where she held her own with the star (I won't say 'stole the show from' because apparently, after doing 90 episodes together, she was pretty tight with Ms Shields who was her bridesmaid when she married).
Her standup deserves respect, and probably gets just that from Whoopi, Roseanne, Phyllis and Joan.
