Kathy Griffin Books First US Shows Since Controversial Donald Trump Photo

Kathy Griffin Books First US Shows Since Controversial Donald Trump Photo

The comic, 57, announced Friday her first string of USA tour dates since she was photographed holding a bloodied, decapitated Trump head in an image that went viral and sparked massive backlash last May.

Initially, Griffin apologized for the photo that appeared last May, taken by photographer Tyler Shields.

The comedian announced the performances during a top-of-the-show appearance on "Real Time With Bill Maher", telling Maher: "I just booked a show at Carnegie Hall in NY, and I'm also gonna go right to Trump's backyard and do a show at the Kennedy Center".

Griffin also took to Twitter to share the news, encouraging fans to join her email list to purchase tickets next week.

She says she is dipping her toes into touring, even though the Trumps didn't want her to work again.

Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself.

Griffin told Bill Maher she is not "decimated" - despite the wishes of the Trump family.

. "TMZ was reporting my show cancellations in real time", she said of her standup tour.

Griffin thanked Maher for being one of the only celebrities who publicly supported her during the ordeal. "They're normally doing "Stomp" or 'Mama Mia, '" not dealing with what she says were multiple death threats against her. The photo got her fired from CNN's New Year's Eve show, which she had co-hosted alongside Anderson Cooper with 10 years.

Griffin has slowly been paving her way back into the spotlight. "I really believe, it happened to me, it could happen to you and other people or people's kids or relatives".

Asked whether she lost friends over the controversy, Griffin said, "I'm down to three gay guys and you, but I hear you're fluid".

"We need comedians", Maher said, "to sometimes go over the line so we know where the lines are".
