Kathy Griffin—The Warfield

Kathy Griffin

Genre:  Comedy
Venue:  The Warfield / San Francisco CA

There was a line around the block waiting to see a sold out Kathy Griffin show at Crazy Horse The Warfield on Market Street in downtown San Francisco. All this for a D-list celebrity? HELL YEAH! I don’t care too much for her reality TV series My Life on the D-List. And not because I don’t find it entertaining. I don’t think it showcases her talent very well. Nothing compares to Kathy Griffin live—her foul-mouth celebrity trash talk and AWESOME energy.

The first time I saw Kathy Griffin live was pre-Suddenly Susan, back in ’93 or ’94 at an improv actor showcase at the Groundlings Theater in losAngeles. I was with my friend Ray, a struggling actor at the time. After the show we drove down Melrose and luckily saw her walking down the street by herself. Like true scrubs we rolled down the windows and pulled up alongside her and yelled—Hey!  She walked up to the car, flipped her hair and she was all—Hey, boys, what’s going on?  And we were all—We just saw you at the Groundlings and we think you’re hilarious.  And then she’s all—What?  And we’re all—We love that you love beef. You were the funniest one in the whole show!  And she’s all—Fuck! Here I was, thinking… Cool, these guys are trying to pick up on me. Or offer me money.  This girl was somethin’ else.

Kathy Griffin dropped a lot of names in her recent SF shows at The Warfield. The 80/20 rule applied. Or maybe more like 90/10. She sang praises about 90% of them. For the remaining 10% (which was 98% of her material) the stories were oh-so-fucking juicy!

Listen to the KIIS FM On-Air segment where Miss Ryan Seacrest does a telephone interview with Kathy. Ryan dished it out but couldn’t take it and ended up whining like a brat—It’s MY show! and then resorted to hanging up. Hear it for yourself, Kathy Griffin let her have it!

    I watched “My Life…” yesterday. There is something wonderful about she doesn’t take anything too seriously or personally. ie. being hired for an Alka Seltzer buffet and then having people thinking that she worked for Alka Selzter. The advice she gave to aspiring comics was amazing. Everyone could learn something from her about financial planning. “I may be a D-List celebrity but I live in an A-List house, because of how I managed my money.”
