Kathy Griffin announces 'small' comeback on Real Time: 'I'm not decimated'

Nine months after her career was almost derailed by the backlash over a provocative, anti-Trump photo shoot, Kathy Griffin has lined up high-profile gigs at Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center. "But I'm dipping my toes in and I just booked today, I'm gonna do a show at Carnegie Hall in NY, and I'm also gonna go right to Trump's backyard and do a show at the Kennedy Center".

In fact, Griffin had "a small victorious announcement" to make.

Griffin is, as she says, dipping her toes into performing, without a full tour but by testing the waters with this upcoming show.

"I'm dipping my toes into touring again", Griffin said, asserting that the president and his supporters would likely prefer she never worked again.

The comedian confirmed the news over social media, writing that "tickets will be on sale next week".

Griffin announced her first US shows since the gruesome photo, which showed her holding a bloody mask of President Donald Trump's head, was released in May 2017.

Last June, Griffin received backlash for a controversial photo shoot with photographer Tyler Shields, in which she posed with a bloodied replica of President Donald Trump's head.

Shortly after the appearance, Griffin took to Twitter to confirm the news.

Griffin had multiple shows canceled and was sacked from her position as a host of CNN's New Year's Eve coverage in the aftermath. She was subsequently replaced with Andy Cohen. She initially apologized for the photo, but three months later, retracted her apology. "I did an overseas tour".

The photo not only got Griffin booted from her New Year's Eve hosting duties on CNN, but launched a two month federal investigation by two departments from the Department of Justice. "It was bulls-", Maher agreed.
