Biography: Kathy Griffin (born November 4, 1966 in Oak Park, Illinois) is a stand-up comedienne whose career took off in the early 1990s amongst counterparts like Janeane Garofalo and David Cross.
At a time when comedy was turning from punch-line oriented joke-telling to humorous social-commentary and satire, Griffin's wry observations about celebrity culture and fame quickly propelled her into stardom (she even made a cameo in Quentin Tarantino's 1994 smash Pulp Fiction). In the late 1990s she became a household name playing the quirky best friend of the title character on the long running American sitcom Suddenly Susan. Griffin voiced the character of Alice in the animated television series Dilbert. In 2003 she was the grand prize winner on Celebrity Mole, and she continues to tour with her stand-up routine.
