The show will feature a mix of stand-up bits, Kathy’s own spin on the news du jour, interviews and more.
It’s scheduled to premier in the Spring of 2012 and marks the latest chapter in Griffin’s longtime relationship with the network, where’s she’s aired numerous stand-up specials and her reality show “My Life on the D-List”.
The LA Times also reports that Griffin will do two more stand-up specials for Bravo in 2012.
Griffin has at least ten live appearances between now and Spring so be sure to check her Comedy On Tour page for those dates. Her shows are always well worth the ticket price.
Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club is moving to the MGM Grand, Las Vegas and Garrett himself will be performing at the Grand Opening on March 29.
The club had previously been located at the Tropicana, where it was launched in June, 2010, but closed its doors in early December to get ready for the move.
On top of the opening show, Brad will perform at the club until April 4. The rest of the inaugural line-up has not been made public yet. With the MGM’s nearly 5000 rooms- about three times that of the Tropicana- the club should have no trouble attracting good crowds and great comedians.

Former Pennsylvania senator Arlen Specter hit the stage on Tuesday for open-mic night at Philadelphia’s Helium Comedy Club.
Specter ran his comedic game across both sides of the political aisle and the word from most sources is that he did pretty well. Here’s a video from the Philadelphia Inquirer of the retired senator’s set:
Helium Philadelphia hosts an open-mic night every Tuesday, so check their website if you’d like to try and upstage the senator.
Not only did we recently learn that Louis CK‘s ‘Live at the Beacon Theater’ show topped $1 million in sales at five bucks a pop, but today it was announced that the Boston comedian will be hosting the next Annual Radio and TV Congressional Correspondents’ Dinner in June, 2012.
If there was any disputing it before, what with the years of sold-out shows and his hit tv series, I would say that it is now a universally acknowledged fact that Louis CK is The Balls.
Here’s a clip of Stephen Colbert hosting the dinner in 2006 with George W. Bush sitting a few feet over:
