Kathy Griffin lands her own weekly talk show on Bravo
Kathy Griffin has scored her own prime time talk show on the Bravo network, dubbed "Kathy."
The network announced the new one-hour weekly show at the Television Critics Association Press Tour Saturday. "Kathy" is set to premiere in the spring and will feature the comedienne ranting about headlines and tabloid gossip, "stand-up routines, celebrity interviews and taped segments," according to the Associated Press.
Griffin is also set to appear in two new one-hour stand-up specials for the network in the new year.
Griffin recently took to Broadway for a stand-up comedy show dubbed "Kathy Griffin Wants A Tony," which ran from March 11-19.
The comedian has long poked fun at celebrities, most recently mocking Kim Kardashian for her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries.
Griffin has also repeatedly taken aim at Sarah Palin, a Republican former governor of Alaska who later starred in her own reality show, "Sarah Palin's Alaska," and her daughter, Bristol Palin, whose teenage pregnancy was a sensitive issue during her mother's 2008 vice presidential campaign and who appeared last year on the ABC series "Dancing With the Stars." Griffin said in December 2010 that she mocks Sarah and Bristol Palin because "it's just fun."
In the spring, Griffin guest-starred on an episode of "Glee," portraying a character named Tammy Jean, a home-schooling Tea Party candidate who judged the Regionals competition on the show.
