If the apocalypse were to happen tomorrow, it's almost certain that three things would survive--cockroaches, Twinkies and Kathy Griffin. If she did survive, she'd find a way to record herself, send the video back in time and tell us all to "Suck it!" On Thursday, Nov. 19, this indestructible comedienne will take the Morrison Center stage for a stand-up special.
Most famous for her role as Vicki Groener, Brooke Shields' caustic colleague on the NBC sitcom Suddenly Susan, Griffin has managed to remain in the spotlight over the years. She's put her no-bullshit stamp on everything from books (Official Book Club Selection), to TV (Seinfeld) to movies (Four Rooms). Her Bravo TV show, Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, garnered her multiple Emmys for "Outstanding Reality Program."
Griffin's tendency to push the envelope--discussing her love for plastic surgery, dishing on celebrities or escorting "date" Levi Johnson down the red carpet at the Teen Choice Awards--has won her a loyal fan base. So, if you're into foul-mouthed, surgically enhanced and politically incorrect redheads, don't miss Kathy Griffin's polarizing performance.
Thursday, Nov. 19, 8 p.m., $38, $50, $100, Morrison Center, 2201 Cesar Chavez Lane, 208-426-1609, mc.boisestate.edu.
