Ready to get offended and laugh your heiny off at the same time? Then set your eyeballs on Kathy Griffin’s new Bravo talk show “Kathy,” which premieres tonight at 10/9c.
So what can you expect from her new pop culture-obsessed show? In a conference call with reporters this week, the quick-witted, foul-mouthed comedian said expect to see her killing the egos of A-listers, politicians, and her co-workers…and even her booze-loving mom, Maggie.
“I’m going to really have a lack of structure that’ll be dazzling to [the viewers] and will be a nightmare for the editing booth,” she said of her new off-the-wall venture.
As to whom her demo is, she was quick to reply in her hilariously brazen manner. “So this show is for women and gay men. And it’s for married men on the down low,” she riffed. “It’s for experimental men that have girlfriends that dress very well and have something to tell her, but they can’t find the right time…It’s for guys that fake it and act like they care about women’s issues but don’t give a sh*t, and they’re trying to get laid. That’s my demographic.”
Aside from claiming that her show’s “100% sponsored by ChristianMingle.com,” the 51-year-old is convinced she was born to host her own talk show.
“Nobody knows how to fill dead air like a comedian. Also we love to talk about ourselves and our thoughts and our feelings and our musings,” she said. “And we like to also be offensive, which you will certainly get in buckets on this show.”
