Kathy Griffin plans comeback tour, with shows in 'Trump's backyard'

Kathy Griffin plans comeback tour, with shows in 'Trump's backyard'

Last month, Griffin hit her first red carpet since the Trump controversy, which cost the comedian her US tour (she later embarked on a "Laugh Your Head Off" world tour), her high-profile gig at CNN and her friendship with Anderson Cooper.

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. She told Maher she saw her career vanish "overnight", and watched as TMZ reported her show cancellations in real time.

"I'm dipping my toes into touring again even though the Trumps and nobody wants me to work again", she said.

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

Her first shows are scheduled for New York City's Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy City in Washington, D.C. The photo got her fired from CNN's New Year's Eve show, which she had co-hosted alongside Anderson Cooper with 10 years.

Griffin also admitted to being on the Interpol list for worldwide criminals, with Maher quipping, "You were on the D-list".

Kathy Griffin is wading back into the world of comedy nearly one year after a Donald Trump photo scandal derailed her career.

The Secret Service even begun an investigation into the comedian and interviewed her. She recounted a vile and violent threat that she said was the most common one she received. "I'm not decimated" Griffin told Maher to much applause as she waved two middle fingers in the air. "There's like whispering, and they put me in a detention room and you don't know how long it's going to take". They can do that'.

Determined not to do a "perp walk", Griffin and her attorneys negotiated to have the DOJ interrogation take place at her attorney's office. She appeared on the cover of the Hollywood Reporter recently and discussed the controversy. I didn't assault anybody. I mean, my God, there are celebrities that [expletive] kill people, ' Griffin told the magazine.
