Kathy Griffin Goes for the Gasp at the Majestic

Does the internet change how you do comedy—like with Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance that has been done to death?

I’m always thinking, “what can I say that hasn’t been said?” What I bring to the table is my take, that is, telling it through the perspective of my mom, halfway through a box of wine. That’s a take we haven’t heard yet. I always have to keep abreast of what has legs, what’s a story that’s going to fade overnight and once again, I will infuse that story with my own run-in with Miley: the last time I saw her, our last conversation. That way it’s something no one else can comment on because it’s an experience that happened just between the two of us. But I will be honest and say, I’m checking my iPad or my phone up to the minute I go on stage to make sure no one I’m talking about has died between 6 and 8 o’clock.

Do you find famous people changing their behavior around you?

Yes! I ran in to John Mayer recently at this tribute to Don Rickles and I felt that he kept distancing himself from me. I have had other celebrities make the sign of the cross with their forefingers in order to try to exorcise me, like I’m Linda Blair in The Exorcist. Yes, I am used to celebrities coming up to me saying “don’t put me in your act,” and I don’t make those kind of deals. I just can’t do it because they’re not the boss, the audience is.
