Kathy Griffin was born and raised in Chicago to a hospital administrator mother and a father who managed home electronics stores. Griffin began her career in Chicago, with an appearance in a commercial. This led to her moving out West, where she studied at the Lee Strasberg Institute. Eventually her parents, who are "golf fanatics," decided to leave the cold weather behind and follow her to Los Angeles, where her father is currently following in his daughter's footsteps and pursuing a career in acting.
Griffin went on to join The Groundlings, whom she performed with for seven years. In 1994, she decided to pursue stand-up comedy and appeared at various venues in the Los Angeles area. She created and stars in "Hot Cup of Talk," an alternative stand-up show performed in a theater setting. The successful show features such comics as Janeane Garofalo, Julia Sweeney, Margaret Cho, Dana Gould and "NewsRadio's" Andy Dick, among others. She also recently completed her own "HBO 1/2 Hour Comedy Special," which will be broadcast in October.
In addition to being a cast member on the comedy sketch show "Saturday Night Special," her television credits include guest-starring roles on the NBC series "Seinfeld," "Mad About You," "Caroline in the City" and "ER," as well as "Dream On," "Ellen" and "Ned & Stacy." She has also appeared in the feature films "The Cable Guy," "Pulp Fiction" and "Four Rooms," among others.
Griffin currently lives in the Los Angeles area. She "loves, loves, loves movies" and spends her spare time viewing as many as possible. She also believes that the cinnamon roll stand, Cinnabon, is the finest restaurant in Los Angeles, and when not dining there, she enjoys Dunkin' Donuts "Munchkins" (doughnut holes).
Kathy Griffin's birthday is November 4.
