Kathy Griffin never turns off.
Before we even exchange greetings, she begins ripping into some of her favorite fellow television personalities.
“I believe Oprah Winfrey and Ryan Seacrest are trying to kill me,” she says. “Something is going on where the two of them are out to take over the world, and they must be stopped.”
Then the 47-year-old comedian mentions how much she hates the Jonas Brothers: “Now we have a gay Hanson in suits, and I’m supposed to be happy about it?”
And it doesn’t take long before she turns on her interviewer.
“I feel like I’m talking to an autistic child,” she howls.
There’s good reason why the 5-foot-4 anti-star has so much on her mind. Last month, she started the fourth season of her Emmy-winning reality series on Bravo, “Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List.” She’s in the middle of a live stand-up comedy tour, headlining her biggest venues ever, including a stop Saturday at the Sleep Train Pavilion in Concord. And she has just released her first CD, “For Your Consideration,” which is basically just a shameless bid to win a Grammy Award. See No Mercy
