"I'll be covering everything that is all sorts of wrong. Dancing with the Stars. Yes, they've asked me to do it, but c'mon, I’m too busy performing around the world and doing my TV specials; I don't have time to practice the cha-cha next to some random Kardashian. I ran into Paula Abdul at the Emmys. And, she was pleasant enough, but let's be honest, she wasn't having my crap. I'm not even sure she knew she was at the Emmys. I think she thought she was at the 1988 American Music Awards with MC Skat Kat. Oh and I'll be ripping apart America's so called "tea party" and let me tell you, there are no mini cakes with those nutbags."

Two-time Emmy winner, New York Times bestselling author & Grammy nominee, Kathy began building her resume with guest starring roles on such series as ER and Seinfeld - where she created recurring character Sally Weaver. In 1996, Kathy's dream of playing a sidekick on a sitcom came true when she landed the role of Vickie Groener, Brook Shields' sharp-tongued colleague, on the hit series Suddenly Susan.

After her various TV guest spots, Kathy began gaining notice as a stand-up comedian and in 1998, HBO gave Kathy her own one-hour special, A Hot Cup of Talk. She participated in, and won Celebrity Mole, and then hosted the reality series Average Joe as well as the MTV series, Kathy's So-Called Reality. In 2010, Kathy took a dramatic turn on Law and Order: SVU where she riveted audiences with her portrayal of a lesbian activist with a secret.

In 2005, Kathy's reality show, Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List debuted to rave reviews and was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Reality Program and the second season won Kathy her first Emmy in that same category. The third season premiered in 2007 and again won Kathy an Emmy for Outstanding Reality Program.

Kathy has performed many successful stand-up specials. The first, called Kathy Griffin...Is Not Nicole Kidman, next came Strong Black Woman. Kathy Griffin-Straight to Hell (2008) and Kathy Griffin; She'll Cut a Bitch (2009) were both nominated for an Emmy in the category Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special. Kathy's second 2009 special Kathy Griffin: Balls of Steal, received great reviews and her most recent special, Kathy Does The Bible Belt, aired in 2010.

In 2008, Griffin received a Grammy nomination for her first comedy album For Your Consideration that debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Comedy Album Chart. Kathy was again nominated for a Grammy in 2010 for Best Comedy Album for Kathy Griffin Does the Bible Belt.

Kathy has co-hosted The Billboard Music Awards three years in a row. She has appeared on numerous talk shows including Late Night with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Howard Stern and The View in addition to filling in for Larry King on Larry King Live. On the small screen she has guest starred on Privileged, Days of Our Lives and Ugly Betty.

Kathy also appeared on the X-Files as well as in Eminem's video, The Real Slim Shady, which was co-directed by Dr. Dre. Kathy was the voice of the Dancing Witch in the wildly successful box office hit Shrek Forever After.
