Comedienne Kathy Griffin takes comfort in mocking Mariah Carey in her stand-up acts - because she's certain the songbird has no idea who she is.

The sharp-tongued redhead admits she doesn't ever worry about facing the wrath of Carey for all of her jibes, because she doubts the busty beauty knows anything about her.

She says, "Mariah Carey doesn't know who I am and doesn't care. I also am a fan. I went to Mariah Carey's last show in LA and she sang BUTTERFLY I cried.

"But I also put her in the act because she's cuckoo! Remember the breakdown? I loved her breakdown! Heaven!

"What about when she had the breakdown and then they wheeled her out like Hannibal Lecter to sing at the Super Bowl."
