Kathleen Mary "Kathy" Griffin (born November 4, 1960) is an American actress, comedian, writer, producer, and television host.
Griffin has taped numerous standup specials with HBO and Bravo.
For the latter network, she has recorded 16 television specials, breaking the Guinness World record for the number of aired TV specials on any network, by any comedian in the history of comedy.
After being nominated for six years in a row for the Grammy for Best Comedy Album, she won the award in 2014, becoming only the third woman to win the category (the others being Lily Tomlin and Whoopi Goldberg).
She would often visit her neighbors, the Bowens, to tell them stories about her family; she has referred to those visits as her first live shows and the place where she learned "the power of juicy material".
In the 1990s, Griffin began performing as a standup comedian and also appeared as a guest star on several television shows.
She achieved recognition in a supporting role on the NBC sitcom Suddenly Susan (1996–2000).
