6/26/06 - Celeb of the Week: Kathy Griffin
Many blogs like to write about their favorite comedians. I will write about the worst. Perhaps you are familiar with her; her name is Kathy Griffin. There are two main attributes of Kathy that I truly hate:
1. her unfunny comic routine
2. her botched face lift.
I will examine each in order. Her "reality" tv show on Bravo is called "My Life on the D-List." There is a reason why she is on the D-List. She is a comedian and she is not funny. Were she to be even remotely funny she would probably be promoted to the B-List. To date Kathy has had 2 distinct and equally annoying types of comedy. Years ago she played the annoying spunky red head. Today she plays the sarcastic b*tch. Neither makes her appealing. While I usually enjoy observing self-deprication hers appears fake. Its like she knows that people find self-deprication funny but she isn't really unhappy with her life. Perhaps thats why so many of her jokes fall flat on their face.
How much would you pay to see Kathy Griffin at a comedy club? $5? I wouldn't pay a cent and I used to essentially live at a comedy club. (For any readers in the DC area I hope you visit the DC Improv often, the acts they bring through are usually pretty good)
On to Kathy's face lift. Who performed this? Dr. Frankenstein? Her cheeks look ridiculous. Am I supposed to believe that is her natural face? Who wants to look at someone who is completely fake? She might as well were a brownbag over head. In fact, more men would probably find her attractive if she was to do so.
Kathy Griffin: I hate you.
