Bio

Chicago native Kathy Griffin is probably best known for her four-year stint on the NBC sitcom Suddenly Susan as Vickie Groener, Brooke Shields' acerbic colleague.

After moving west and joining the famed Los Angeles Groundlings comedy improvisational troupe, Griffin began building her resume with guest starring roles on such series as Mad About You and ER, and also appeared as the recurring character Sally Weaver, on Seinfeld.

After her various TV guest spots, Kathy began gaining notice as a stand-up comedian and landed her own HBO Half Hour Comedy Special. In 1998, HBO gave Griffin her own One-Hour Special, A Hot Cup of Talk.

Griffin has supplied voices for characters on the animated series Dilbert and The Simpsons, and she appeared in a dual role on the X-Files as well as in Eminem's video, The Real Slim Shady, co-directed by Dr. Dre.

Kathy co-hosted The Billboard Music Awards three years in a row; appeared on numerous talk shows including Late Night with David Letterman, and Live with Regis and Kelly and has been featured in the films It's Pat, Four Rooms, Muppets From Space, and in the animated feature, Lion of Oz among others.

Kathy has a great passion for reality TV. She participated in and won Celebrity Mole on ABC, hosted the NBC reality series Average Joe and hosted the MTV series, Kathy's So-Called Reality.

Kathy's stand up comedy special called The D-List aired on Bravo and she taped another special for Bravo at the Orpheum Theatre on March 19 2005 etitled Kathy Griffin Is Not Nicole Kidman.

In addition, Kathy released her comedy stand-up on DVD, called Allegedly, and produced her own reality show, Kathy Griffin: My Life On The D-List, that aired on Bravo in late 2005.
