Kathy Griffin - Kathy Griffin Dubs Kris Humpries, 'Special Needs Boyfriend'
The outspoken comedian Kathy Griffin has ruffled a few celebrity feathers with her stand-up show aired on the Bravo TV network, entitled Tired Hooker. Now available to view in its entirety on YouTube, Griffin starts the show by referring to Kim Kardashian's recent, short-lived marriage to Kris Humphries, calling the Nba basketball player Kardashian's 'special needs boyfriend'.
Wearing a black t-shirt, emblazoned with the phrase 'Tired Hooker' in gold writing, Griffin didn't stop at mocking Kim Kardashian, but also mocked other members of the Kardashian family including Kim's mother Kris Jenner. Other celebrities in the firing line included Ashton Kutcher who fell foul of Griffin's stinging critique after he was recently caught cheating on his wife, actress Demi Moore. Griffin went on to joke about the stars of Dancing With The Stars including Chaz Bono and Nancy Grace. The comedienne then surprised those in attendance by lifting her t-shirt and revealing her underwear in a section about Nancy.
The 51-year-old comedienne rose to fame after appearing on the comedy TV shows Seinfeld, the Fresh Prince of Bel Air and Suddenly Susan. She has received three Grammy nominations for her comedy recordings and created a stage show for Broadway entitled Kathy Griffin Wants a Tony, in an overt attempt to bag herself a top theatre award. She is known for deriding celebrity culture and frequently talks about high profile celebrities such as Paris Hilton and LINDSAY LOHAN.
