No way. Kathy is an 'A' on my list.

Reece   June 11th, 2010 8:56 pm ET

i'm sure Kathy is on the D list of many celebs who bare the brunt of her punch lines, but so many of us 'normal' folks think she is an A lister comedian

Mark McGee   June 11th, 2010 9:01 pm ET

Would Kathy really like to be on the A-list? It's too tacky and ridiculous! Kathy doesn't take herself seriously enough to qualify for the A-list.

Smith in Oregon   June 11th, 2010 9:02 pm ET

Kathy does the bible belt! LOL, that must be outrageous. Sadly, I imagine a great many racist and highly bigoted bible thumpers spew out a great deal of hate mail, threats, emails, phone calls and such.

Michael Armstrong Sr.   June 11th, 2010 9:06 pm ET

What was she doing in the men's room Larry .

Chris From Marco Island FL   June 11th, 2010 9:10 pm ET

Come on now....Kathy is far from being "D" list! She is one of the few hot women who say what they really think. Larry, could you ask Kathy what she feels about having a Federal medical marijuana law, seeing how now there are 13 to 14 states that now have medical marijuana laws in effect? Thanks Larry, Your show rules the news gurus!

Deng Young   June 11th, 2010 9:10 pm ET

Hey Griffey,
U r amazing. Not more on 'D' list. U are as great as playmate of the year on the playboy's.

Tina P   June 11th, 2010 9:11 pm ET

Kathy looks gorgeous. I love how she tells it like it is. How has Hollywood changed her (beside the obvious plastic sugery:)? What does she do to stay grounded? Keep up the good work!

Michael Armstrong Sr.   June 11th, 2010 9:14 pm ET

I evedently have nothing else to do .

Dawayne Gates   June 11th, 2010 9:17 pm ET

NO !! Kathy is a A lister. Think she's better than some of the other guest you've had on all year!! LOVE YA Kathy. Larry is Kathy into black guys?

Dave from Pittsburgh   June 11th, 2010 9:20 pm ET


Michael Armstrong Sr.   June 11th, 2010 9:22 pm ET

Kathy should go for being a talk show host her humor is off course for gut busting jokes .

Michael Armstrong Sr.   June 11th, 2010 9:25 pm ET

I wonder if she cracks jokes while making love .

Duke from Santa Barbara   June 11th, 2010 9:39 pm ET

Would Kathy ever consider posing for Playboy? She has the whole package and a fabulous sense of humor......! Come on Kathy....! Hefner, give her a call.

Andrew Reginald Sanford   June 11th, 2010 9:39 pm ET

haha Larry, you and Kathy should hook up, maybe you could tame her, hahaha or she could tame you, haha Love your show:)
Laterz good fella

Jamil   June 11th, 2010 9:45 pm ET

why Kathy jumps over everything....let other talk and do real smile other than fake one often...

RickFromDetroit   June 11th, 2010 9:48 pm ET

Lets see some more of the swim suit.

Michael Armstrong Sr.   June 11th, 2010 9:49 pm ET

She is hot but she sure aint funny .

jim   June 11th, 2010 9:53 pm ET

Give her a drug test tonight Larry!! Come on, let's get the truth out there!

john doe   June 11th, 2010 9:59 pm ET

"LARRY you the man!!! GOOD JOB!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAGGIE!!! USA is the way!!! ALWAY'S!!!

Michael Armstrong Sr.   June 11th, 2010 9:59 pm ET

This was a long show Larry good night .

RickFromDetroit   June 11th, 2010 9:59 pm ET

Happy birthday Maggie, and here to you. I am on my second bottle.

cindy in FL   June 11th, 2010 9:59 pm ET

Kathy's ok EXCEPT... didn't find it funny she sits there making fun of her mom. It doesn't sound funny, she sounds too desperate for humor -> and it's not work'n!! Try laughing at the things you did WITH mom as a kid – not AT your mom!

rj   June 11th, 2010 10:02 pm ET

I guess those swimsuit pix prove kathy’s not a drag after all. Ugocaligrl!


Dave from Pittsburgh   June 11th, 2010 10:02 pm ET

Maggie always seems to be so sweet.

Jessica   June 11th, 2010 10:03 pm ET

LOVE LOVE LOVE Kathy and Maggie! Great interview Larry!

Sharon Weremy   June 11th, 2010 10:04 pm ET

Happy, Happy 90th YOUNG Birthday, Maggie.,

Your ROCK!!

maryln48   June 11th, 2010 10:14 pm ET

I would like to see her with Chealsy Lately, I would pay big money for that. I wonder if they are friends or even like each other. She is not on the D-list anymore.

Sandie In Durham   June 11th, 2010 10:26 pm ET

It would have been nice, knowing Kathy Griffin can’t keep her yap shut for 5 seconds without butting in, if her Mom Maggie had her own segment. I found Kathy disrespectful and annoying. Not even close to humorous. Could have been if she had let her Mom finish……., anything, then chimed in.

Smith in Oregon   June 11th, 2010 10:30 pm ET

Kathy mentioned two men working at CNN are getting the ax, who is um no longer working for CNN?

Joan   June 12th, 2010 12:20 am ET

Your comment is awaiting moderation.
I had watched Kathy's previous comedy specials and I enjoyed her wit; yet, within five minutes of her newest special, I turned it off and curled up to read a book.


She made a comment about wiggers eating at the Pancake Houses. As a Black American that grew up in a midwestern town with a strong presence of those who affiliated with racist organizations, I had been called the "n-word" multiple times. So, upon hearing the term wigger, I just lost interest in hearing anything else. I understand that humor is a way to get through some of the tragic moments of an individual's life, but I was personally disappointed to hear this term used as a punchline. Wigger literally translates to White "n-word".

kim   June 12th, 2010 12:52 am ET

Larry, can Maggie Griffin talk for a while?

Larry King   June 12th, 2010 12:53 am ET

Local interests triumphs over politics in Kenya when little known Placenta Party of Kenya is prepared to outwit PNU and ODM candidates to win the several by-elections coming up.
Placenta party has by then accepted to make a special appointment with Larry King to be able to interview them in one of these days before the month or beginning of the next month.
The humbling defeat by the party's contestants is to be perceived as an underdog sounding a clear warning to politicians that addressing local needs, rather than a show of might complete with helicopters and top-of-the-range vehicles, is paramount.
And as the powerful forces are going for each other’s throats, Mr Quincy Timberlake (the party's chairman) is quietly reaching out to all corners of the Kenya, promising development and mature bureaucracy that are at the gates of the votes.
Larry is to receive the appointment by Tuesday midday deadline from the top Placenta party officials.
If the appointment is considered, then Larry King Live will interview the 4 top officials of Placenta Party of Kenya live and direct from their homes in Kenya.
The 4 are Quincy and Esther Timberlake; Joseph and Vineyard Hellon respectively.

Denise   June 12th, 2010 5:58 am ET

Larry I think you should kick Kathy Griffin out of your show. She is rude, loud, insensitive, tactless and has absolutely no manners and no considerations of others feelings. She is extremely rude to her mother which from the show she is proud of. She is vulgar and irritating. Try to invite substantial people to your show next time. The only saving grace about her is her 90 year old mother who is simply lovely. Nothing like her. I dont even know why shes considered a comedian.

Jane   June 12th, 2010 6:04 am ET

Would it not be better for Kathy Griffin to refer to her Mother's favourite drink as "Chateau Cardboard" not "Boxed Wine" ?

gerald Jolly   June 12th, 2010 8:33 am ET

It's the way things are in the JEWISH culture.

When you've had enough of just one, they bombard you with another no-talent boob.

and when that is'nt enough

You get the JEWISH TRIO trying to out talk one another.


gerald Jolly   June 12th, 2010 8:36 am ET

I cannot believe that Larry was able to get the extremely talented Maggie Griffin on his show.

What a wonderful surprise to have the mother who brought us the most untalented individual in the world on the LKL show.

I nearly fainted from excitement.

gerald Jolly   June 12th, 2010 8:37 am ET


Su   June 12th, 2010 10:35 am ET

Goodness what an egotistical bore! Nothing amusing ever comes out of jer mouth. The word obnoxious keeps springing to mind and I just wish CNN stopped having her on Larry King Live.

Michelle Obama   June 12th, 2010 12:28 pm ET

Morning America!
I support the young, vivid and coming Placenta Party of Kenya. I supported the ODM camp but I discovered that something went wrong from 2007 onwards. I've cordially invited them to the Eastern Wing of the White House in September 2010 for a 5 day visit.
I admire their stern courage to face the gigantic Behemoth because 2012 is meant for the young.

Scott   June 12th, 2010 1:18 pm ET

Why is this foul-mouthed hate-spewer allowed back on CNN? She dropped an F-bomb on New Year's Eve on live TV; she should have been booted off CNN permanently. Then she continues to spew her filth against Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann, and other women who are a thousand times more accomplished than she will ever be. Seriously, folks, why are left-wing comedians so full of hate? Why??

Carol   June 12th, 2010 2:29 pm ET

She is obnoxious, untalented, vulgar, and more. I won't go on, except to say that she's the reason remote controls were invented–to change the channel or mute immediately.

dorothy peterson   June 12th, 2010 5:42 pm ET

It is my hope that you never have kathy griffin on again. she showed so little respect for her mother. unbelieveable!

Debbie from Dallas   June 12th, 2010 9:56 pm ET

As far as I am concern. Kathy Griffin is no way a D lister. She is triple A !!!!! Stay hard Kathy Griffin !!!!!!!!!!!!

Cody   June 12th, 2010 10:15 pm ET

She is a bore , certainly not funny and entertaining.
I am not a fan of Sarah Palin but her constant trashing of this woman is bordering on obscenity .
What has Kathy Griffin achieved in her life , she certainly wouldn't measure up or come even close to Palin's accomplishments .

psk   June 13th, 2010 8:48 am ET

Hey Kathy- The world has news for you- Oprah isn't the only one out there that finds you distasteful. You seem hell-bent on be as offensive as possible. Crude remarks entertain crude people.

gerald Jolly   June 13th, 2010 9:56 am ET

Kathy Griffin says that Opra hates her.

My question is.


Sandie In Durham   June 13th, 2010 4:35 pm ET

Of course she would say that. Kathy will say anything for attention.
Even negative. ( Or in her case, especially. ) It’s all publicity to her.
The D list hook is good enough for her. Makes a living at it so she could care less, about the rest, or to better her routine and get an even larger fan base.
She is satisfied with being at the low end.

Deborah Derusha   June 14th, 2010 8:59 pm ET

Deborah Derusha from Montreal,Quebec Canada

Ed Robinson   June 16th, 2010 1:46 pm ET

When she called Michelle Bachman an idiot, that told me what an idiot Kathy Griffin is, besides being a no talent big mouth. What a jerk! This is what has so many people leaning to the right in this country right now-jerks like her.
