OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. — Emmy winning Chicago native and star of reality show “My Life on the D-list” Kathy Griffin stopped at the Civic Center music hall in Oklahoma City for a two hour laugh-fest.
Clad in a black “Team Griffin” t-shirt and black leggings, the red head came bounding out to wild applause.
“Where my gays at?!” Griffin asked the crowd at the beginning of the show. The question was met with what could only be described as an eruption. Yes, Griffin is popular with the gay crowd.
Griffin warmed her fans up with a list of food that she has eaten since she got to the state, all fried. She asked about eating calf fries and talked about eating ranch on her pizza for the first time.
For two solid hours Griffin had the crowd roaring with laughter. The Comedienne doesn’t really tell any jokes. She just talks about subjects and tells stories about things that she likes.
With stories ranging from interactions with her mother, television shows “The Real Housewives” and “Hoarders” no subject is taboo. She can do as little as reenact her favorite scene from “Housewives” and make it funny.
Her favorite subject is of course Oprah and her new OWN Network. Griffin described specific episodes of Oprah’s show and went down the list of shows she will not miss a minute of on the new network.
Griffin is at her best when she transforms into your very own Hollywood insider. The best bit of the night was her retelling of the story when she performed at the Quentin Tarantino roast. Since the show was not televised the audience gets all the dish. The bit includes Uma Thurman drama, John Travolta jokes and actor Michael Madsen’s version of a pick-up line.
Griffin never stops and her energy is unmatched. Gay, straight, whatever the audience loved her.
