Posted on

Kathy Griffin’s limited-run Broadway solo act Kathy Griffin Wants a Tony is hilarious. Not only that, she produced a fantastic fake bio for Playbill. Here’s an excerpt:

Kathy Griffin is thrilled to be performing at the storied and absolutely haunted Belasco Theatre…. Ms. Griffin is especially excited to be reprising the role of Kathy Griffin after spending four years as Kathie Lee Gifford in a touring company of Ms. Gifford’s one-woman musical jamboree, ”Jesus Is My Homeboy.”…

Broadway:”Speed-the-Plow” (with Jeremy Piven, sushi-taster no. 4);… Neil LaBute’s ”I Hate You But I Won’t Say It Till It Can Do The Most Damage” (dead whore)….

Off-Broadway: ”Mark Twain Tonight!” (understudy); ”Stamp” (the sister production to ”Stomp,” but about stamp collecting)….

Off-Off-Broadway: ”Live! Live! Girls! Girls! Sex! Sex!” (still running)….

Television: ”Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List” (series regular);… CNN ”New Year’s Eve With Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin” (Gloria Vanderbilt’s best friend)….

Celebrity Feuds: Oprah, Ryan Seacrest, Bill O’Reilly, any and all Palins….

Film: Pulp Fiction;…Gandhi (Gandhi’s wacky girlfriend); Saving Private Ryan;…Black Swan; The King’s Speech; The Social Network….

Ms. Griffin would like to thank…her loving fiancé Kelsey Grammer. However, Ms. Griffin’s most cherished production is that of her four children: Apple, Moses, Willow, and Jaden.
