Kathy Griffin is a two-time Emmy winner, NY Times bestselling author and four-time Grammy nominee best known from her reality show, “Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List.” Kathy is very involved with the gay and lesbian community and was presented with the prestigious Vanguard Award at the 2009 GLAAD Media Awards. The Trevor Project awarded Kathy with Lifetime Honoree at the 2011 gala for her tremendous work with the GLBTQ community.

After moving to California from her native Chicago, Griffin joined the famed Los Angeles Groundlings comedy improvisational troupe. She began to build her resume with guest starring roles on such series as “ER” and “Seinfeld”. In 1996, Griffin realized a dream when she earned the role of Vickie Groener, Brook Shields’ sharp-tongued sidekick on the NBC sitcom “Suddenly Susan.”

She soon landed her own HBO half-hour comedy special, and was given her own one-hour special by the network in 1998 entitled “A Hot Cup of Talk.” With a great passion for reality TV, Griffin participated in, and won, “Celebrity Mole” on ABC. She went on to host the NBC reality series “Average Joe” as well as the MTV series, “Kathy's So-Called Reality.”

Her own reality show, “Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List,” debuted on Bravo in 2005 to rave reviews. The show received Emmy nominations for “Outstanding Reality Program,” for each of its six years; winning the award twice-in 2007 and 2008.

In 2011, Kathy delivered an incredible four stand up specials; “Kathy Griffin: 50 and Not Pregnant,” “Kathy Griffin: Gurrl Down!” “Kathy Griffin: Pants Off,” and “Kathy Griffin: Tired Hooker.” “Kathy Griffin: Tired Hooker” is currently nominated for an Emmy in the category Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special. Kathy joined the competitive world of nighttime talk shows with her new weekly Bravo pop culture show, “Kathy,” on April 19, 2012. “Kathy” returns for a second season in January 2013.
