Controversial American comedian Kathy Griffin coming to Belgium
16 November at Arenberg Theatre in Antwerp
Monday, August 28, 2017 —
She speaks! After two Emmys, a Grammy, decades of starring in television shows and touring, Kathy Griffin is launching her very first world tour after suddenly never being more in-demand. Armed with the story of the now infamous and controversial photo concerning the current president of the USA - photographer Tyler Shields took a picture of Kathy holding a replica of Donald Trump’s bloodied, decapitated head in her hand - the fiery redheaded American comedian is bringing the story of the photo heard ‘round the world and the fallout that followed, along with breaking down everything in the pop-culture landscape, to audiences worldwide. The global Laugh Your Head Off tour begins this October in New Zealand and will make a stop in Antwerp on the 16th of November.
A Guinness World Record holder for the Most Televised Comedy Specials by any comedian in history, Griffin completed her 80-city Like A Boss tour in 2016 and capped it off with the release of her second best-selling book, Kathy Griffin’s Celebrity Run-Ins: My A-Z Index. She became a #1 New York Times best-selling author with the release of her memoir Official Book Club Selection in 2009. Griffin was also the star of the docu-series Kathy Griffin: My Life On The D-List and her own late-night talk show Kathy.
Now, the prolific comic is taking her iconic, legendary, no holds barred brand of storytelling comedy global and nothing is off the table. “Who knew?” Griffin said. “One photo that sparked a conversation led to offers from around the world. So I look forward to making audiences laugh, telling them the whole sorted, ridiculous, but hilarious story.” Never has Ms. Griffin been more motivated to deliver the most balls-out, most envelope-pushing, most hilarious comedy to the world. “My show isn’t for the faint of heart so leave your kids at home. My motto is ‘Funny First.’ But don’t worry, we’ve got some serious smack talking to do about everything and everyone,” before adding, “with love, of course.”
