Kathy Griffin Plays The Martyr on Rosie's Show
Griffin is often compared to Joan Rivers, sometimes even consider "today's Joan Rivers" but I don't see why. Joan is a comedic genius. She can banter off the cuff, she writes her entire material and no matter how far she goes it's meant to be funny, not to bully or shock. You laugh because the lady has a brilliant mind and can put some absurd and crude material at times together, but when she does it isn't for the sake of just saying the words, they have a punch line. Funny is funny even if it is X Rated funny, R Rated funny, or Disney funny. To me, what Kathy does in her stand up act is complete assignations and shock. She has some hilarious moments but so do most comedians. I was a fan of Kathy for years, ever since the Suddenly Susan days. But to take her seriously as a martyr on the Rosie Show is the ultimate joke. Because the joke's on you if you receive it.
I've met Kathy 3 times. She was wonderful to me, I have no axe to grind, I just am so tired of her joining the "Stop bullying campaigns" for face time on TV when she is a bully herself. And puhleeze, if she is band at the View, then why the heck is she on there even after her public claims of being banned.
