Kathy Griffin to do new shows, 9 months after President Trump photo

The comedian announced the performances during a top-of-the-show appearance on "Real Time With Bill Maher", telling Maher: "I just booked 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". Maher was among a short list of celebrities who supported Griffin after the outrage over her photo with the fake severed head of President Trump. "Great news - I'm heading back to Carnegie Hall in NY!"

"I'm dipping my toes into touring again even though the Trumps and nobody wants me to work again", she told Bill Maher during an interview on Real Time Friday night. "I just booked today, I'm going to do a show at Carnegie Hall in NY and I'm also going to go right to Trump's back yard and do a show at the Kennedy Center".

Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself.

Kathy Griffin announced her first US tour since the now-infamous Donald Trump severed head incident.

Griffin spoke Friday on HBO's "Real Time With Bill Maher".

The comic opened her segment tonight by thanking Maher for standing by her. "I'm not decimated" Griffin told Maher to much applause as she waved two middle fingers in the air.

She said she was taking in stride being one of the most spoken-about people in America, and all that it comes with. Smerconish asked why Daniels doesn't tell her story if that's the case, and Avenatti said "we may see that".

'And I'm going to go right into Trump's backyard and do a show at the Kennedy Center'.

Unable to tour in the United States, Griffin went overseas, performing in 23 cities in 15 countries, she said. But because she was under investigation in the United States, she was "detained at every single airport", she said.

Griffin initially apologized for the photo but later retracted the apology because, according to her, the reaction had gotten so out of hand.

Griffin stirred controversy a year ago when she posed with a severed head resembling the president. She then clarified, "I'm kidding, I'm kidding. It could happen, it's kinda insane".

"We need comedians", Maher said, "to sometimes go over the line so we know where the lines are".
