Bravo can’t get enough of Kathy Griffin.The comedian has signed with the cabler to star in four hourlong standup specials to air quarterly this year. Griffin has been a staple at Bravo since 2005, appearing in eight comedy specials as well as her series “My Life on the D-List.” “Kathy’s quick-fire humor and ability to tap into pop culture make for must-watch television,” said Andy Cohen, exec VP of original programming and development for Bravo. Added Griffin: “I went to Bravo and told them I thought I was being a little too nice in my standup specials. They agreed and gave me four more. Let the fur fly.” Cohen was promoted in December after being a driving force on the net’s top series, including “Top Chef,” “The Millionaire Matchmaker” and the “Real Housewives” franchise.
