Last year, comedian Kathy Griffin withdrew from the spotlight, following backlash over a photoshoot depicting her holding a fake “severed head” bearing the likeness of President Trump.
Now, Griffin, who claimed to have believed her career was finished, is hoping to make a “comeback,” and says that her Carnegie Hall show is sold out.
In her usual melodramatic style, Griffin told Bill Maher the fallout from her disgraceful stunt made her one of the greatest female victims in the history of America.
Griffin has also joked that her next controversial photoshoot will feature another severed head, this one resembling Vice President Mike Pence.

Unfunny comedian Kathy Griffin’s career imploded after she posted pictures of herself holding a bloody severed head made up to look like President Trump.
That happened in May 2017. She all but disappeared as criticism over the stunt was fierce. By last November, she had come unglued. The D-list comedian posted a bizarre video to her YouTube page called “State of the Union,” in which she said, “I’m admitting that I lost my mind.”
The 57-year-old claimed she’s on Interpol’s list and is being shunned by Hollywood. “I know I took a picture that offended a lot of people, but this wall of crap has never fallen on any woman in the history of America like it has on me,” she said.
Now, she’s planning a comeback. While she’s done some shows overseas, she hasn’t had a domestic gig since the fallout over the photos.
