Kathy Griffin Announces Comeback Gigs at Carnegie Hall and Kennedy Center

Kathy Griffin to do new shows 9 months after Trump

Comedian Kathy Griffin is embarking on her comeback, some nine months after she provoked outrage - and lost much of her work - by posing with a fake severed head that appeared to depict President Donald Trump.

The comedian announced the performances during a top-of-the-show appearance on "Real Time With Bill Maher", telling Maher: "I just booked a show at Carnegie Hall in NY, and I'm also gonna go right to Trump's backyard and do a show at the Kennedy Center".

"I'm dipping my toes into touring again, even though the Trumps and nobody wants me to work again", Griffin said Friday on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, her first major TV appearance since the photo. "I just booked today".

Comedian Kathy Griffin says she'll be appearing in upcoming shows in NY and Washington.

The other three attendees are Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell, Parents Television Council spokesperson Melissa Henson and Lt.

Griffin's appearance on Maher's show - and what she called her "small victorious announcement" - appeared to mark the beginning of her comeback, after the backlash over the offending photo last May badly hurt her ability to work. With its release in May of 2017 came a swift backlash from all angles, including the Trump family and the White House.

The 57-year-old comedian has booked her first shows in the United States since her tour was canceled last year following her Donald Trump scandal.

Griffin also took to Twitter to share the news, encouraging fans to join her email list to purchase tickets next week. She was subsequently replaced with Andy Cohen.

"Hey Suzie Hardy, I will do for you that which no one did for me after May 30", Griffin tweeted Sunday.

Holding Butler to 68 points was another key for Villanova. "We limited their threes and guarded well against Baldwin and Martin. The Wildcats (30-4) won their second straight Big East Tournament and third in four years (losing in the 2016 final).

But, she told Maher, "I don't blame them". "I did an overseas tour".

"TMZ was reporting my show cancellations in real time".

She recently did a lengthy interview with The Hollywood Reporter that recounted the story behind the photo, which was taken by photographer Tyler Shields. "I did 15 countries and 23 cities, and I was detained at every single airport, which is frightening", Griffin said.

"It truly is a historic situation", she said.
