Montreal, March 13 – Just For Laughs is thrilled to present the legendarily irreverent comedian, Kathy Griffin, with her Laugh Your Head Off world tour!
After a year of national scandal and following a sold-out run of stand-up shows and rave reviews around the globe, Kathy Griffin is returning armed with the story of the now infamous and controversial photo (yes…THAT photo). The fiery redheaded, award-winning, American comedian is bringing the story of the photo heard ‘round the world and the fallout that followed, along with breaking down everything in the pop-culture landscape from Trump to the Kardashians. Griffin tells all in this more than 2-hour no-holds-barred show in the raw, honest, and engaging way fans have always loved about her.
“Donald Trump will not survive the live and hilarious indictment I will be bringing down on his orange head. Did I say head?” Griffin said.
“You’re gonna get the whole story. We will talk about THE photo that sparked a conversation around the world, how my mom Maggie still watches Fox News and thinks I might be in ISIS, and hell, I’ll even walk you through my interrogation by the feds. You’re not gonna get that story anywhere else! Oh, and did I mention that my next door neighbors during this whole ordeal are none other than Kim Kardashian-West and Kanye Kardashian-West?”
Griffin continues, “My show isn’t for the faint of heart so leave your kids at home. My motto is ‘Funny First.’ But don’t worry, we’ve got some serious smack talking to do about everything and everyone,” before adding, “with love, of course.”
The North American leg of the tour begins Friday, May 25th in Toronto at Massey Hall and heads to Kitchener on Saturday, May 26th at the Centre in the Square. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 16th at 10:00 AM!
