A native of Chicago, Kathy Griffin moved west to pursue an acting career. After joining the famed Los Angeles Groundlings comedy improvisational troupe, Griffin began attracting attention. With that experience, Griffin segued to guest-starring roles on such series as "Mad About You"; "ER"; "Ellen"; and also appeared as the recurring character, Sally Weaver, on "Seinfeld".
After her various TV guest spots, Kathy began gaining notice as a Stand-Up comedian and landed her own "HBO 1/2 Hour Comedy Special".
Griffin is probably best known for her 4-year stint on the NBC sitcom "Suddenly Susan" as Vickie Groener, Brooke Shields' acerbic colleague. Kathy also supplies the voice for Alice, the triangle-haired woman on the animated series, "Dilbert".
In 1998, HBO gave Griffin her own HBO One-Hour special, "A Hot Cup of Talk".
Along the way, Kathy has been seen regularly on many MTV shows, Co-hosted The Billboard Music Awards two years in a row; appeared on numerous talk shows including "Politically Incorrect", "The Rosie O'Donnell Show", "Late Night with David Letterman", and "Live with Regis and Kathy Lee"; she has written articles for GLAMOUR and GEORGE Magazines; and has been featured in the films "Pulp Fiction", "The Cable Guy", "It's Pat", "Four Rooms", "Muppets From Space", "Where's the Caboose", "Dill Scallion", "The Intern", "On Edge", and the animated feature, "Lion of Oz".
Kathy can still be seen across the country doing stand-up at colleges, theaters and comedy clubs.
Since "Suddenly Susan" ended, Kathy has appeared in a dual role on the "X-Files" and in Eminem's video, "The Real Slim Shady", co-directed by Dr. Dre. She hosted VH1's Behind the Music Anniversary Special and supplied a voice for the animated series, "The Simpsons". Kathy also recently hosted the MTV series, "Kathy's So-Called Reality".
