Kathy Griffin is the host of Bravo's pop culture talk show "Kathy."

Double Emmy winner, NY Times best-selling author, Grammy nominee and 2009's GLAAD Vanguard recipient, Kathy Griffin is a multi-faceted performer with a rapid-fire wit. She has been making audiences laugh for years discussing Hollywood gossip and celebrity blunders.

After moving west from her native Chicago and joining the famed Los Angeles Groundlings comedy improvisational troupe, Kathy began building her resume with guest-starring roles on such series as NBC's "ER" and "Seinfeld" — where she created recurring character Sally Weaver. In 1996, Kathy's dream of playing a sidekick on a sitcom came true when she landed the role of Vickie Groener, Brook Shields' acerbic colleague, on the NBC show "Suddenly Susan."

After her various TV guest spots, Kathy began gaining notice as a stand-up comedienne and landed her own HBO half-hour comedy special. In 1998, HBO gave Kathy her own one-hour special, "A Hot Cup of Talk."

Kathy has a great passion for reality TV. She participated in, and won, "Celebrity Mole," and then hosted the NBC reality series "Average Joe" as well as the series, "Kathy's So-Called Reality."

In August 2005 Kathy's reality show, "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List," debuted on Bravo to rave reviews and was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Reality Program. The second season won Kathy her first Emmy for Outstanding Reality Program. The third season, which premiered in 2007, won Kathy her second Emmy for Outstanding Reality Program. The fourth season was again nominated in the category. The fifth season bowed on Bravo in the summer of 2009 and the sixth season wrapped up the show in 2010.

Kathy has performed many successful stand-up specials for Bravo. The first in 2005 called "Kathy Griffin….Is Not Nicole Kidman," the second in May of 2006 called "Strong Black Woman." "Kathy Griffin-Straight to Hell" (November 2008) and "Kathy Griffin; She'll Cut a Bitch" (April 2009) were both nominated for an Emmy in the category Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special. Kathy's most recent special "Kathy Griffin: Balls of Steel" recently aired on Bravo to great reviews. Kathy's stand-up special "Allegedly" is available on DVD.

In June 2008, Griffin released her first comedy album "For Your Consideration," featuring tracks such as "Straight Guys Wake Up!" and "Hi Barbara Walters." The album received a Grammy nomination for Best Comedy Album and garnered Kathy the acclaim of being the first female comedian ever to debut #1 on the Billboard Top Comedy Albums chart. Her first Christmas Album is called "Suckin' It for the Holidays." Kathy was Grammy nominated again in 2009 for Best Comedy Album.

Kathy has co-hosted The Billboard Music Awards multiple times and also hosted Bravo's A List Awards for two years, for which she garnered great reviews. She has appeared on numerous talk shows including "Late Night with David Letterman," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "Howard Stern" and "The View," and has sub-hosted for Larry King on "Larry King Live." On the small screen she has guest-starred on "Privileged," "Days of Our Lives" and "Ugly Betty." Kathy has also been featured in the films "It's Pat" and "Four Rooms" among others.

Kathy has supplied voices for characters on the animated series "Dilbert," "The Simpsons" and "Crank Yankers" and she appeared in a dual role on "The X-Files" as well as in Eminem's video, "The Real Slim Shady," which was co-directed by Dr. Dre.

On September 8, 2009 Kathy added best-selling author to her list of many achievements. Her tell-all autobiography entitled "Official Book Club Selection: A Memoir According to Kathy Griffin" topped the New York Times Best Sellers List. She was also #1 on Wall Street Journal and Publisher's Weekly.

Kathy is very involved with the gay community and was presented with the prestigious Vanguard Award at the 2009 GLAAD Media Awards. Kathy was awarded the 2009 Gracie Award for Outstanding female lead in a Comedy Series. She was the 2007 GAVYN Awards Honorary Gay, 2006's Ladies Home Journal "Funny Ladies We Love" recipient and in 2005 she received the Lambda Legal Liberty Award. Other honors include 2003 Toys for Tots Commander's Award, Women's Night Special Comedic Award, Lucie Award, 2005 Aid for AIDS Friend of the Year and in 2007 was voted one of the Top 100 Irish American's in Irish American Magazine. Kathy has also been nominated two years in a row for the PGA Award in the category Television Producer of the Year Award in Non-Fiction Television.
