Kathy Griffin Brings "Like A Boss' To Taper

Two-time Emmy and Grammy Award-winning comedian Kathy Griffin brings her newest show, “Like A Boss,” next Wednesday, November 4, 2015, at 8 p.m. to the Center Theatre Group/Mark Taper Forum. “Like A Boss” is part of an on-going 80-city tour and will play a total of four performances at the Taper through November 7.

Kathy Griffin says she has “a self-diagnosed, standup comedy disorder” and “must share my thoughts on President-Elect Trump, Caitlyn (Jenner), LAST WEEK'S Madonna concert, oh, did I mention I was in Eddie Murphy's hotel room in my pajamas?” She will pull back the curtain on these and many more known personalities in an ever-changing show that is inspired by this year’s political landscape and her personal run-ins with celebrities and other “questionable figures.”

Three weeks ago, Ms. Griffin was the ONLY female to present Eddie Murphy with the prestigious Mark Twain Prize at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

Kathy Griffin made history in 2013 with her sixth consecutive Grammy nomination and first win for Best Comedy Album. In 2013, Kathy was inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records for writing and starring in an unprecedented 20 televised stand-up specials - more than any comedian in history.
