Count Basie Center for the Arts presents Kathy Griffin

(RED BANK, NJ) -- Count Basie Center for the Arts presents Kathy Griffin on Thursday, March 21, 2024 at 7:30pm. Kathy is a two-time Emmy and Grammy award-winning comedian, a towering figure on television, on tour and in publishing.  She is known globally with her universally recognized brand of pull-no-punches comedy.

Kathy’s unrivaled style of humor and prolific comedy pedigree makes her one of television’s go-to hosts for premier live events. Kathy drew huge worldwide audiences to CNN’s New Year’s Eve special, which she co-produced and co-hosted with Anderson Cooper for 10 years.  Kathy co-hosted The Billboard Music Awards LIVE three years in a row, the 41st annual Daytime Emmy Awards LIVE and AARP’s Movies for Grownups Gala. Griffin’s sure-fire hosting success led to her own LIVE late-night talk show, Kathy.  Griffin won two Primetime Emmy Awards for her hit reality series, Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, which aired for six years on Bravo. It was nominated every single year of its run. The show also won the GLAAD Media Award for Best Reality Program.

Griffin’s influence can also be found in publishing. Her boisterous and revealing memoir, Official Book Club Selection: A Memoir According to Kathy Griffin, debuted at #1 on the New York Times Bestseller List. Griffin’s much-anticipated second book, Kathy Griffin’s Celebrity Run-Ins: My A-Z Index, was also a New York Times Best Seller. Griffin has been prominently featured on the covers of The Hollywood ReporterAdweek and The Advocate, as well as in-depth profiles in Los Angeles Times, New Your Times, New York Magazine and Forbes.

In addition to performing, writing and producing, Ms. Griffin is a renowned speaker and has taken her empowering messages of equality through activism and humor all over the country. Ms. Griffin’s passionate advocacy for women, the LGBT community, and other disenfranchised groups have been displayed through numerous candid and intimate conversations with award-winning journalists and moderators from the Los Angeles Times, New York Times, the Hudson Union Society, 92Y, Oxford Union, as well as tech giants Google, AOL, Yahoo! and Buzzfeed.

Tickets range from $45-$85 and are available for purchase online.

From penning New York Times best-selling books to filling the country’s biggest concert halls on her comedy tours, Griffin has cemented herself as one of the most powerful figures in comedy and a warrior for the First Amendment. Unfiltered, unafraid, and utterly hilarious – she is a must-see for any stand-up fan.

Count Basie Center for the Arts is located at 99 Monmouth Street in Red Bank, New Jersey.
