Kathy Griffin & The Crazy Divas
The Laugh Factory Lives Up To Its Name
By Kelly, Entertainment Reporter
Griffin is one little firecracker. My goodness, what can I say, she was
fabulous. The outstanding comedienne had the audience in the palm of her
hands the entire time (1.5 hours) she was up on that stage. She rocked
the hizzouse, I kid you snot.
Griffin's show began with a video of Mariah Carey's appearance on MTV's
"Cribs." Griffin would pause the video and make snarky comments
from her perch in the balcony. The video was hilarious, even if it were
on its own. Oh my God, I had no idea that Ms. Carey was that strung out.
Following the MTV video, Ms. Griffin came down to the small Laugh Factory
stage and began her stand-up routine which she dubbed her salute to "Crazy
Divas," ripping on everyone from Mariah Carey to Ellen DeGeneres
to Chaka Khan. Griffin offered her own humor and observations on Celine
Dion and her child molester husband, Rene. She joked about Celine and
made cracks about her spending the rest of her life in Vegas, but then
she added, "And don't think I won't be there, front and center with
50 gay boys!"
Most of Griffin's stand-up show is comprised of her dissing on various
pop culture celebrities. Nobody is safe from the wrath, from Anna Nicole
Smith to the starlets of "American Idol." Griffin delivered
non-stop laughs throughout her entire performance. She ranted about many
other subjects including "Big Brother 3" (she was invited to
appear on "Big Brother 2" with Andy Dick, but she "declined
because I have standards"), "Sex and the City" (she's convinced
the girls are really four gay guys trapped in women's bodies), Julia Roberts
and her wedding, and Angelina Jolie and her Thai baby. Griffin cracked
snarky remarks on the Thai baby frenzy and how we should all hurry and
grab one soon, since they are flying off the shelves!
For the last half an hour of the show, Griffin shared her personal stories,
both good and bad, with the perfect mixture of snark and silliness. If
you find yourself with an opportunity to see Griffin's comedy in person,
do us all a favor and go see her. For those with weak bladders, there's
a handy product by the name of Depends.
