Well, I'll tell you what those protests. No matter where you are in any protests in Washington, you see hats of all kinds. Okay. That single it out is just simplistic or just meets.

The Ellen Scott about Mr. Phillips shifting account of what happened I they approached him to harass him or harass him. And now he says he approached to defuse the situation no questions from alad about how slamming the drum in someone's face supposed to do that even though the tribal thing.

Was saying, hey, do these kids are let's let's shame them. Let's identify them. How how is that? Not a problem down. CBS CBS did a decent job on the evening news. Jim Axelrod, accurately, recalled how the kids from Kentucky had been taunted by this group called the black. Hebrew, israelites. But that's what they call. Now. CBS didn't mention the death threats police they had a more complete accounting NBC ABC. And then Allen Ron Allen over it. NBC also skeptical of the young man's account of the actions by Mr. Phillips despite but the video showed.

"A good thing. Another student. Who is at the center of this has really been taken apart by so many a lot of them in Hollywood a lot of people who responded to this whole situation and social media. And you know, the telling of the story as it is the real telling of the story needs to be done. He was actually trying to be the peacemaker and probably succeeded to a degree in being the peacemaker as everybody was engaging in these groups had he not stood up the way, he he did in the high school students singing spirit songs by school. Explain all this. It could have really gotten out of hand. And I will explain all right. There were a lot of people in Hollywood that really came down hard on these kids. Some have actually apologized like Jamie Lee Curtis. I will read your apology some are still carrying on with their reading rhetoric like Alicia Milano and Kathy Griffin who of stuck to their brand of Hayden, just even ramped up. So this story has got to be retold in its correctness is that a word, and that's gonna lead to the big question again is who we trust who you trust in the media to give it to you the right way in this day and age is there anybody even the president became involved in this story with these pro-life kids getting the bad end of the stick. So who do we trust? It's been recommended by number of people. I heard most of them this morning. Couple of last night.

"Film or TV. Okay. I have a really odd favorite film. My favorite film is the dead zone directed by David Cronenberg. Okay. It's been spooked many times by Christopher Walken. But I actually really love the film. It's weird. But it's it's a good watch never seen. Great performances. Do you have a TV? What's your TV thing? Do you? Do you like reality TV? I do. I I mean, I also watch like some trashy stuff like ninety day fiance, and I'm still a little into Amish. Although I don't think it's that real. Yeah. I don't think they're like that Amish. I think like how much of your show Israel because I'm watching it, very real Laura Spencer come in. That was a real she. She redid my entire understand. It was so cold seen. I saw was. Yeah.

Six AM we've five states else to go to we want to beat the antique dealers. It's dark out. I know this is when we do it you're pretending to wake up you pretend to have makeup on. Right. Right. So that this is why I have a hard time with reality television through that part was s but I will say ninety five percent of the show was really real. And in fact, what I struggle with is. I don't think they would even let me make that show now because they film that show for six months for eight episodes. Now, it's like Bing, bang, boom. And people are reading scripts, and my favorite is when you can see is movie, you can see the breeding the prompter. So we didn't have that on the list. But I do miss like reality shows that are real now. Every so often, you'll get sort of an accidental real moment. My favorite is if you're watching Kardashians, which I know you never miss, and then Kim we'll get a surprise phone call from Konya, and you can see this look hunter face that. You're like, oh that that's real. She really did not expect that call. And then finally. Yeah. Miscellaneous anything from your life that you. I love that you would recommend to others. Oh, yeah.

And I do the crazy lady arm circles. Oh, which I'm demonstrated that lady that lady and also at fends off Salas because nobody wants to mess with the crazy lady who's fifty eight walking too fast. Like, I'm a speed Walker from Kenya. Waving her arms because I think I'm Kathy Griffin assailant that this is the way of saying of pointing yourself out and going, oh, I'm Kathy Griffin. I'm the crazy woman who walks her rent so what I do to safeguard you just walk around your house, and then probably takes eight minutes. No. But what I do is. I put on to kind of scare people and unnerved them I put on way too much eyebrow pencil way too much lipstick. And I look really freaky. So even if someone was about to say, hey, get out of ISIS or hey, I'm a fan. They they're like, you know, what not today. This bitch is crazy. Kathy. Like so much for coming. I adore you genius.

"Then suddenly, Susan happens. And the show was a hit. It was on for what four years or years four seasons when that happened and you making money probably for the first time. Yes, I was making fifteen in episode season one. And by the end, I I actually renegotiated my contract personally with Peter Roth. He used to run the television end of the studio, and I couldn't get a raise through my agents in. So I scheduled a meeting with him. And I think I gave them a different pretense, and it was after hours, and I didn't know how to negotiate. But I heard that this is how you buy a car. So I brought to cocktail napkins, and he was kind of laughing the whole time. He goes, we're not gonna we're not gonna do this, Kathy. It doesn't work like this. I said, yeah, here's how it's going to go. I'm going to write a number and your I swear to God if you ever see Peter Roth ice swear to God. This is true. This is insane. It's completely true. And we went back and forth and my agents at the time were mortified they're like, well, great. You're probably get fired. And sure enough we met in the middle, and I left victorious at like six twenty and I then called my entertainment lawyer Bill Sobel who I'm still with. And he said he offered me a job at the law firm. You have just an open offer. I said full partnership, and he said, yes. So did you pay your agents, of course, percent on that? Of course, they're assholes for taking it. I know that's why after a little Trump scandal. I was very happy to change my whole business model and start promoting my own shows. So, you know, like, a big promotion company did about half the tour, and then something just didn't feel right? Like the tickets weren't selling as well. And then I decided to start renting the theaters myself. Why are then the money higher the entire staff, and that's why if I can get into film festivals? Now, I I don't know how to do that. Exactly. But I could certainly like if I got into south by south west, I could rent a theater, I could find a projectionist I could staff it, I could get a panel. And so that's been very rewarding thing since the Trump thing is I found a way to find my fans I hired a DC marketing firm called Cambridge Analytica getting it was not that company. But LA just didn't know what to do. With me. And I said, I think my fans are out there. I think they want to come see me live. I think they want to hear the story and then Carnegie sold out in less than twenty four hours. So all the dudes who were like, you can't sell more than five hundred tickets in any city in America, then that sort of emboldened me, and then I started promoting my own shows being my own promoter and that made them livid. And there were many calls with them screaming at me and me crying. And then Finally, I said, why are you guys coming so hard? I'm surely you have other clients who do this. And they said, no, why would they upset that you were because I was cutting them out of fifteen percent. So not only do the agents get ten percent. But then the promotion company gets fifteen percent. And if they don't know how to advertise me because now that I'm a totally different type of artist. I'm like a lightning rod, political whatever I knew how to market myself. And I started my first mailing list. I know little late to the game my first text list, and that's really what sold out the tour. So this is what I mean when I say Kathy Griffin handles her business that was in the intro to this vary. Episode's right, Kathy Griffin. Who has? Has gone from being Illinois Bank teller suburban, no nothing. That's right to media mogul..

"I'm sure they were I'm sure that's not what they want us to do what their time, but the FBI. List? Is it very glamorous list to be on by the way, you You know? save? Until you're in an airport in Singapore by yourself, and they've taken your phone, and your passport, and you don't know why. But you try to act very non ISIS is what I found. And so by the way, I still don't know. What's on my passport? It's gotta be bad though. Threatened to kill the president. It was a picture with a Basque with ketchup. Will you stop Kathy Griffin holding a bloodied likeness of president Donald Trump's head to disturbing? I understand how infants people it was not enough for the president tweeting this morning, Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself my children, especially my eleven year old son, Barron are having a hard time with this sick. The first lady followed as a mother, a wife and a human being that photo is very disturbing. And makes you wonder about the mental health of the person who did it. This is fake one. Just so, you know, the Fifty-six-year-old joked during the photo shoot about the possible reaction from law enforcement. Not a joke for the secret service, which looks into any possible threat to the president people weren't laughing online. Either calling it disgusting repugnant shocking. Jussie Clinton tweeted, this vile in wrong. It is never funny to joke about killing a president. You don't even know you're talking about today CNN announced that Griffin would not be hosting the network's New Year's Eve live show a job. She has done for a decade. So the FBI has been as to this day quite protective. Although I admit when the female agent was shaking while holding the letter, I remember thinking, this one's bad. And so they only come over win. They have with with what they deem to be a credible threat. So there's the normal. You know, online ways to gut me and kill me and shoot me in the continent. Decapitate me and put my head at my kind. That's the gold standard. But apparently, there are other ways. And then when you say like, well what's going on? They can't give you the details because. It's an active investigation. And then I said, we'll do you have any advice, and they said be vigilant. Which I am. Hi vigilant. Motherfucker right. Are you like now somebody who doesn't take the same route twice and all that kind of stuff? Yeah. There's some of that stuff. I mean, the two there were a lot of incidents on the tour. Like, there was I had a show where a guy threw a bottle at my head so hard that it like whisked pass my ear and it hit the curtain behind me, which could've killed me. But here's the part where I turn it into humor. I swear to God. I'm so delusional. I thought flowers I was like, oh my God. I had the most fans in the world. They know. Flowers. It wasn't. It was it was and he then ran to the local newspaper and bragged about it. And so the newspaper ran an article about like this guy like he wasn't charged with attempted assault. And by the way, I'm not going to go back to Auckland and charge him because I just don't have time, and I don't want to be detained there. And yeah, I had a guy at the Houston show. Just wielding a knife with a mega hat just really out in front of the show trying to slice audience members. And me if you could get at me, and there's a video of it online. So there were a lot of incidents on the tour that now that they're over. I can talk about we shouldn't happen to comedians. I just want to say, let's just get that part of with you know, I mean I've been doing comedy since you could make fun of Bill Clinton with the ges on the dress. And no one thought you weren't a patriot or easy. No..

"Numbers is being your friend for her. What I'm hearing sounds a lot like Herodotou. Yeah. Towards this whole visit. We talked about that a lot. We would talk about a lot of the dealing with sort of adversity. And by the way, she was much better at it than I am like she would say about executives throw movable heads through all the same. You take the head off one. You put it by which is kind of interesting in light of my scandal later life. I'm not blaming her. I'm not blaming her. But she just had a better attitude about it and having been through so much, and I would often start our dinners our lunches being really angry and bitter, and then we would just end up laughing because one of our favorite topics was and this is still one of my two, and I hope you share this. I think you might is one thing I'm fascinated by is by people who really do seem to kind of. I mean, no one has it all, but at least people that have really been lucky and had a lot of Br. Breaks that I personally have not experienced a lot of people we both know have experienced and yet they bitch, and they're super happy. And I find that endlessly amusing like people that, you know, walk away from the forty million dollar deal, even though they have complete artistic control or the people that, you know, turned down roles because you know, one thing I learned early on from the other women in the groundlings is a lot of the women were bitter. If they didn't get like the hot girl role, and I was like dang, wait a minute. Why don't I just go for the best friend because she gets all the laughs. And then the pretty girl can go be anorexic. And so I was happy to embrace the sidekick role from minute one. But I watched a lot of my female actress friends kind of like crash and burn their own careers because in real life. They would say, well, wait a minute. Why should I play the friend when a real life? I get the guy who cares in real life gets the guy and on a TV show be the friend. And so I tried to learn from all that stuff. But let me ask you. Let me turn the tables on you. Would you be willing to name anyone? It doesn't matter. If you know that we're not like does anyone come to mind that it's sort of cracks you up that they seem truly truly fortunate and yet just miserable. Right. Mike fascinated by that. But this conversation began with and continues with you'd better not think I am that I said, you're a grudging and bitterness and resentment towards things as as as I do I do. Yes, it, and I think many of my listeners get Kathy Griffin and go she said, she's got thirty two million dollars. Come to their house to over twenty nine. Again. You think the FBI out October twenty ninth made like five thousand visit fans. They are by the way, they are very familiar in my home when they come in. It's like cheers in the norm. I mean, the FBI has been in my house so much in the last year and a half. So I do want you to know. This will Trump scandal has not turned me off the government. I'm not one of those crazies. No tinfoil hat. I was. Yes. I mean, you brought you brought for me. And I said I would mention the minimum for Christmas ornaments, all of which say fucked Trump on them. Well, I'm interested. That's not the government. Right. Doesn't say fuck the FBI. They've been very good to me very productive. In fact, last time they came over. They had to read to me something called a a letter that was called a duty to warn. Okay. So when they're coming over now, it's not because anything you've done it's because the overran for your safety. Correct. The DOJ the secret service in the USA. They were the ones investigating me. And by the way, this is all from Trump and Jeff Sessions like I I felt like the whole time they were investigating me. And I was on the no fly list for two months, and then the INTERPOL list when I went overseas, I really. Felt like that was just Trump Jeff Sessions like ordering them. I felt like the people investigating me were pretty much rolling their eyes the whole time..

"So it was a great place. Once again, probably where I started my lifelong, maybe not the. Quality of mixing work in pleasure. Because you know, I was teaching there. But I was also in the company, and it was very competitive there, but we all hung out together. And I was a little bit of the cruise director. Like, I was the one trying to get people to go out after every show go to Jerry's deli. Rehash the show that sort of thing. What was the goal at that time for you? I mean, you're you're live. It was all about us now. And at that time Lauren had a buck up his but about the groundlings he just didn't go there. He didn't like it. And so years, he was plucking talent from other places, mostly second city, and Chagas. And then when he finally started to look at L A, he came to the Growlings one night. And I remember he was looking at Lisa Kudrow. Julia Sweeney, myself and Julia got the gig based often lot is Pat character and shit other characters that were fantastic and Lisa, and I just didn't have characters that really spoke to learn and that you know was. Huge for at least someone in our little click to be on SNL. So it was great. I got I would go visit Julieta at SNL. And I kind of got to see the vibe there. And I got to know some of those folks. And then obviously Lisa cujo did just find yourself, and I ended up doing okay. But at the time it was almost like you thought that was the only gig in town. And frankly, I was kinda grateful to be on a sitcom because I mean SNL is fantastic. But it to be on a Twenty-three episode of years to come in the nineties was fantastic. And after the SEC no showcase was suddenly so it was like seven. I mean, I was the groundlings for like thirteen. Trying get I did my first commercial at seventeen I was on suddenly Susan thirty five. Not a thing in my see you found the sweater. Oh, that's where he pointed. This is Vicky Vicky Zakheim Susan tells me your warns Yvonne fan, it's great in bed. You're a sent in the groundlings was very fast, and then it was fourteen years before. So yes, yes. And everyone around me was getting breaks. And I was so bitter. And I just kept thinking. All right. Eventually something's got to happen. And ironically things started happening when I in fact, started doing stand up. But was there any point where you're like, you know, what Kathy you gave it your best shot you're done? Never. And that's what you're Tatum. My parents is they kept saying can't you have a plan b and by the way, they had a an impractical plan. But it worked for them. They kept saying all right. We're going to indulge you for a year. And if you're not a big success at a year, right? And then it was in fact, Jimmy Garoppolo who said I think you're actually funniest as yourself. So I be asked the director of the Friday night, ten o'clock experimental show to let me open the show with a five minute little story. And then I would do twenty minutes. And I don't know if you know, but my last tour was three hours..

"You sell things Kathy? Do I sure do? So they were retiring when you are stuck pretty young. Yes. Was that was that conversation? It was. And I knew I saw that you can't get working San Diego. But you can't really get work and San Diego's and actress, so I knew it had to be Elliott, New York. I couldn't talk them into New York and there's not enough golfing in Manhattan. Let me just say you guys got to work on that. But I talked them into Los Angeles based on utter lie, and then we moved to Los Angeles, and I just started signing up for acting classes, and I took every kind of classic imagined voice over elocution lessons to try to lose my Chicago accent. I went to the lease Strasbourg academy on a scholarship that I'm pretty sure I'm pretty sure it was illegal like I remember, my mom going to the lease Strasberg academy with me and saying that I qualified for a scholarship based on my father's real way, express retirement pension fund, and somehow they bought it. I went there for free for two years. And then you've found the groundlings. Yes. Because. Grew up loving second city and worshiping second city in Chicago, the level of talent was stunning to me astonishing. I mean when I when I went to the early shows there. I mean, they they were so sharp and the idea that you could improvise scenes that were truly improvised based on audience suggestions, as you know. But also the way they interacted with each other. And I could tell the dynamics were different between each player and that whole school, and I thought the theater, you know, ninety nine seats. So it was waiver. I thought it was like intimate, but still impressive. And I was bold. As brass is my mom would say and after the show, I didn't know what to do. I wanted to be involved in some way, and I didn't know anybody in Los Angeles. And so I'm marched backstage, which was inappropriate. And I went to I went up to the guy that I thought was the funniest guy in the whole show. And I said, I'm sorry to bother you. But I understand I said something like is there any way I can get involved. In this. What do I do? And he was so nice. And he said yes, and he introduced me to the teacher of the school. And he said there's there's lessons, and there's various levels that you have to graduate to in explained it to me news, very sweet and patient with me. And that man's name was Phil Hartmann? I know. And then years later, I actually got to be in shows with Phil because Phil would always do a pilot and before SNL like the show never went. So he kept doing pilots and pilots and every so often even come back to the groundlings. And I'll never forget getting a good review in the then LA weekly which sort of made or broke the groundlings at that time and fill out a mention, and I got a mention and I remember thinking like Fillon. I like in my mind, it was like the Fillon Kathy shows doing quite well, but you know, so many talented people came out of there, and then became a teacher there. So that was my day job for years will Ferrell was the student of mine. Sure terrorism student of mine, and the people I was in the company were all talented..

"And this is all a lie or rather an improvisation. If you want to say that it was an early improvisational genius. You're eighteen years younger than your youngest sibling. Right. Yes. Okay. So when you say. Use the rhythm of it. Okay. And I'm what you call an accident baby. And they love to tell me that every year. You're an accident. I I know I get it. I'm still an accident. I was jeweled have you? And you know, what my mom did. This is so genius. My mom. This is like old timey Dr stuff. Besides the fact, I vividly remember going to the doctor with my mom, and she would dress off because it was a big deal to do with the doctor, and he would he was like five hundred pounds getting on a podcast. I mean, you have to do the hair you have to do the may hair makeup glam glam session. Forget how late H you you are. are very late, and my seems are crooked. But I remember doctors were revered for some reason and. My mom was very star struck. So like, I grew up on publications called Rona Barrett's Hollywood. I don't know if that rings a bell good also the times trip, you know, had to know the newspaper stuff. And so for some reason our family with absolutely no show business connections or really expirations was very starstruck. And so like it or not I grew up with a lotta politics at the table talk. And yet, you know, my mom could name. Elizabeth Taylor's husbands in succession, while my father could name the supreme court nominees in succession. So it was a nice combination. That combination is now kind of echoing its way in your own career trajectory true. In fact, one of the t shirts, I sell my website. It's called impeach Brett. For sale a Kathy Griffin dot com.

"In may of two thousand seventeen Kathy Griffin faced the biggest controversy of her career, which if you don't know came about when photographer Tyler shields published pictures of her holding a facsimile of Donald Trump's decapitated head. The response was swift and harsh longtime friends abandoned her for tour dates were cancelled and she found herself being investigated by the FBI but in true, Kathy Griffin fashion. She once again put to work a lifetime of experience clawing and scratching her way to the top. And although the aftermath has been rough to save lease. She refused to go away coming up. We're talking more about her. No, good horrible year. And we discussed the balance between ambition in contentment. I laid my own personal struggles with this. I said that when I was content. Professional ambition goes down. Here's what she had to say. Oh, that's the struggle for real. That is that is a conversation. I've had with the lake great. My dear departed Joan rivers, which is the personal life in the professional life rarely coincide. So yes, I have also experienced that when I have professional highs. I often have personal lows and vice versa. That is the formula when you can figure out contentment in both or some level contentment. That's got to be the winning formula. What has been like the most content time for you? And when you had both working, well believe it or not my boyfriend who, unfortunately, we just broke up, but for many years when he was my tour manager, I really was in heaven because we traveled together, and we were love, and we would vacation and we lived together. So even though there's a lot of gender politics involved at cetera. I would be very happy in that situation and believe it or not when I was filming my life on the list. I never have as much fun as when my mom and dad would be on the show because they'd be on the quote, set meaning my house, but they'd also be in front of a camera. And even though it was unscripted I loved being able to show the world. How genuinely funny they will my mom is still alive. My dad was so we're going to Tyra, and I just want to make sure that she doesn't want like confront me on like, why are you? So mean and say bad things about plumbers and your act, and they're going to show a clip of me talking about her in my act. I know you do this thing where she gets doubt. She's very a lady like, and then she gets real known real down and dirty scandal, cheap this way, she is going to be offended by that. All right. So here's the plants or percent, if it gets ugly, or like, if she does anything like, you know. Well, how can you say bad things about these poor celebrities just trying to make a living and the audience is like, yeah. Blue the number one you have to contradict that. So then when I say something, we're we're we going to be your in the audience of New Orleans from the audience. Yes, you can my. You mentioned your parents my life on the dealers, and it sounds like they were pretty supportive of us sort of heading into show business from a fairly young age. DC's the Kool-Aid. Do didn't you go out to LA with them? Like when you were a tighter them. All right. So my mother still has a dream that I'm going to be either a stew. Let's say that we're more. It's a flight attendant, right? Okay. Or a dental hygienist? But that's just not true. But that's what she wants. She wants me to have a real job. And my father said pursue your dreams. And my dad had this great line where he said fuck about on care if you never work again, do what you want which unfortunately, it took a little too seriously. And yet when they wanted to retire because the this the Chicago interest was so bitter that they wanted to go someplace warmer, they were deciding between San Diego and Los Angeles, and we didn't have the inter-web back then. And I convinced them that Los Angeles had more free golf courses. I said I had done an extensive study at the forest park library in Illinois..

"So you have a thirteen thousand square foot house that you live by yourself. I don't and here's what I here's what I love about it. And by the way, I'm just going to pitch my next TV show, and I've already registered it. So don't any of your listeners steal it. I have three Gaiman living in my home. And I realized I am like the new gate MRs Garrett affects of life. So I call my mansion MRs Garrett and the house for way, we're gays. Why are they living them one is going through break up?

Now, I'm not saying traffic is one wing your home. That's currently under construction your say. Yes, do you even see these people because you you can probably be JC out of my line. But I see them. What why do you think you, and it sounds it sounds like from you're very kind of earliest professional days when you were doing open mics? Why do you think gay people or gay men particular responded? So well to you, I think it's a feeling of sort of disenfranchisement and the the gay community is kind of often liked sort of a ballsy chick. You know, what I mean, I sort of fit the model of like the loud mouth redhead and also ever since I can remember I mean, honestly in first grade somehow the little gay boy, and I found each other and the school that I went to the smart thing they used to purposely put four kids together without asking them if they're friendly or not, and I just happened to be at the table with the gay kid. And then we became friends, and he was shy and outgoing. So that namic was set up early on and other than that. I just think we have a lot in common. We both love fabulous, Innis, and. Explain to me the purpose of buying a thirteen thousand square foot home for at most really to people. Right. All right. Here's how twisted it is. I try to make a point to actually spend time in every room every day. That's weird. I know it's weird because I'm from a very middle middle-class background. And I grew up in a house with one bathroom, and my mom and dad and five kids. And so it amuses even me that I have eleven bathrooms. Water. Yeah. One of those. The community. It is a big middle finger to the naysayers in my career who have you told me that everything from your noses too big too. You're unlikable to you're never going to be a success to you can't do this. And that and then I like to invite them over under the pretense of like some anything could be a fundraiser. I could say surprise I wanna three birthday party only to see their face when they walk in. So this is this is the power of negativity at work. I mean, it's fantastic. I've had everyone for Ricky race come over. And a lot of the guys get mad like Ray Romano came over. And he goes you buy this house with dick jokes. That's right. It's paid off.
