Kathy Griffin Brings ‘Like a Boss’ Tour to L.A.’s Taper Forum

Kathy Griffin is ready to show she’s the boss of comedy.

The two-time Emmy and Grammy Award-winning comedian is bringing her “Like a Boss” tour to the Mark Taper Forum for a two-night event in November.

“After having just sold out the Kennedy Center and with Carnegie Hall coming up, for my hometown I insisted on playing a venue so intimate that when I horrify someone with an inappropriate joke I’ll be close enough to look them in the eye … while they’re laughing hysterically at my comedic genius,” Griffin said in a statement.

Griffin said she’ll be taking on recent pop culture news and the political landscape, setting off on an 80-city tour. She has “a self-diagnosed, standup comedy disorder” and “must share my thoughts on Caitlyn (Jenner), Barbra Streisand and those adorable Duggars,” she added.

Griffin made history in 2013 with her sixth consecutive Grammy nomination and first win for best comedy album. In 2013, she was inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records for writing and starring in an unprecedented 20 televised standup specials, more than any comedian in history.

Tickets go on sale Aug. 14 and can be purchased at the Center Theatre Group’s website.

“Like a Boss” is set for two performances Nov. 4 and 5 at 8 p.m. at the Taper.
