TV Tonight: Kathy Griffin, "Straight to Hell"

TV Tonight: Kathy Griffin, "Straight to Hell"

Kathy Griffin is a pretty divisive comedian, so if you don't like her, you might want to just skip down to the next post. For the rest of you, though, you'll want to get your TiVos ready for tonight, when Griffin's newest stand-up special, "Straight to Hell," premieres at 9 p.m. on Bravo.

The special, her sixth, was filmed earlier this year in Chicago after Griffin won an Emmy for My Life on the D-List (and subsequently offended people with a remark about Jesus). The special features her commentary on her Emmy experience, along with stories about guest-hosting on The View, meeting Martha Stewart, and taking digs at Paula Abdul, Dr. Phil, and Sen. Larry Craig.

If you've seen Griffin's stand-up specials before, you probably know exactly the kind of raunchy celebrity-skewering you're getting into if you tune in tonight. But just in case, I have a clip of "Straight to Hell," and you can check it out if you

I'm surprised at the boys not liking her - my husband loves her! He wishes she'd say the f-word less (he wishes Dane Cook would too though, so it's not a gender thing)... but he thinks she's the funniest! I can't wait to watch this with him tonight.

I, too, am a convert after watching one of her shows. (I found all the gays liked her.) Now I totally dig her. Before I was just going by what I'd seen on those two Seinfeld episodes as well!!

Thanks for the reminder, Buzz! I can't wait for this. She came to the Big D a few months back but it was sold out :( I'm so glad she won the Emmy - I just hope she still manages to hit the road in some "regular" fashion - other than just a few shows here and there.

She's a pretty funny lady and I bet she's cool to hang out with. I love how her stand-up is so conversational. Like you're gossiping with a friend.

I can't STAND this woman. I'm surprised that so many people are fans of hers. I won't even watch the two Seinfeld episodes that she's on.

I used to despise her until I watched one of her standup specials against my better judgment. Now, I am a convert. I think she is hilarious, and I love that she just does not care what anyone thinks of her. I also love when she gossips about celebrities, like her bit about Brooke Shield's wedding and the drunk mother of the bride. I plan to watch this tonight, and I hope that my boyfriend will go from rolling his eyes to rolling on the floor.

I will so be tuning in to this show! While I realize she can be annoying and unapologetically offensive, I still totally dig her and her style.
