Griffin goes for Broadway

But comic won't be eligible for a 'Tony'

Kathy Griffin may want a Tony, but she won’t get one — at least not for her upcoming eight-perf stint on Broadway, “Kathy Griffin Wants a Tony.”

The limited run of Griffin’s solo stand-up outing isn’t long enough for the show to qualify for a nomination at the legit world’s top kudofest.

Regardless, actress and reality TV fixture Griffin has staked out a run at Broadway’s Belasco Theater in March, prior to the launch of play “Fat Pig” in April. Discussion topics of Griffin’s show, in which the comic will take to the mic to dish on pop culture, are likely to change on a night-to-night basis depending on the events of the week.

“Tony” reps the Main Stem debut for Griffin, whose TV credits include “Seinfeld” and “Caroline in the City,” as well as reality skein “My Life on the D List.”

“Kathy Griffin Wants a Tony” is set to play March 11-19 at the Belasco.
