Legendarily Irreverent Comic Kathy Griffin is Back on the Road with More North American Dates for Her 'Laugh Your Head Off' World Tour

Thursday May 3, 2018

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 with the much-anticipated North American continuation of her "Laugh Your Head Off" World Tour. Due to popular demand Griffin is adding more shows throughout the United States.

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 two-hour no-holds-barred show in the raw, honest, and engaging way fans have always loved about her.

The North American stint of the "Laugh Your Head Off" tour begins Friday, May 25th in Toronto, ON with U.S. dates produced by Live Nation.

"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.

"To all of you in North America who have been sending so much love and support, now's your chance to show it. Buy a ticket for one of these tour stops and I promise you won't be disappointed. 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."

Following a wildly successful run overseas including New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, the U.K., among many others, the prolific comic is ready to come home and tell her truth in the only way she can - through fearless and peerless comedy. More motivated than ever, Griffin is ready to deliver the most balls-out and frankly hilarious shows of her stellar career.
