Kathy Griffin

Kathy Griffin at the Paramount with the Kens
I can’t believe it’s been over a year since Kathy was last here (Jan. 06).  Her July 20 show is selling very well and having watched the first two episodes of the current season of Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List I cannot wait.  After her show in Jan. ’06 she made the comment to me “What a great audience. I wish I would have filmed my Bravo special here.” So do we Kathy.

We’ve had lots of great shows filmed here including Bill Engvall: 15° Off Cool – his last Comedy Central special-  as well as Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Comedy Show.

There are five shows that people still like to talk about: Kathy Griffin,  Cyndi Lauper,  Ira Glass w/ Julia SweeneyJimmy Buffett  and Marvin Hamlisch. (Really people, that kid Marvin had me pull up on stage wasn’t staged. )

Kathy is coming back.  Get Tickets

Cyndi isn’t bringing her current tour to Austin…Houston and Dallas are as close as she gets. I’m catching her in Dallas.

I hear Julia Sweeney is making her play “Letting Go of God” into a film. Maybe we can screen it when it is released.

Based on the nice comment Jimmy Buffett wrote on the Green Room wall, I hope he’ll come back some day.

I’d love to have Marvin back but his show didn’t sell as well as we had hoped. It might have had something to do with his appearing at the Seton Gala only a few months earlier. Who knows. 

More on Kathy as we get closer.
