Kathy Griffin: Kathy Griffin Is… Not Nicole Kidman (2005)

For fans of Kathy Griffin, this mid-aughts special represents some of her peak work. Conversational, hysterically funny, and remarkably charismatic, the comedian immediately establishes a rapport with her audience, sharing behind-the-scenes stories of “American Idol,” the Billboard Awards, and Clay Aiken’s tour. It’s all very chatty and gleefully dishy, and Griffin has a rare ability to deliver an entire hour-long performance without form or structure but nevertheless manage to deliver hilarious punchlines one after another. Some of the jokes are perhaps a little mean-spirited, but nevertheless, this is highly recommended, especially for “celebrityphiles.”
